Having iPhone 8 audio issues? You're not alone

Having iPhone 8 audio issues? You're not alone”

There are some iPhone 8 owners who are running into an issue with the phone's earpiece. Apple hasn't spoken about what exactly is causing the "crackling" or "static" sound.

That detail is in opposition to the view taken by some, that the subdued iPhone 8 demand is due to customers waiting for the iPhone X.

The company has originally written: "Apple is working closely with Microsoft to resolve the issue and will release a fix soon in an upcoming software update".

The crackling only occurs during Facetime and normal calls and does not occur all the time. However, this "crackling" sound which is disturbing users when they make phone calls seems to be affecting users across carriers and in different parts of the world. It is not audible on earphones or on speakerphone, only through the earpiece. One iPhone 8 Plus owner even uploaded a video of his unit making the noise. Email syncing issues over Exchange protocols were also the subject of complaints, with users receiving the error message, "Cannot Send Mail".

Here's a disrupted audio recorded on one such call.

It has already been a week since the OTA release of iOS 11 for Apple users and the acceptability of the latest operating system for iPads, iPhones, and iPods is not too impressive. Meanwhile, as of two weeks ago, only a mere 15.8 percent of Android devices are operating Android Nougat, which was released in 2016. The issue comes just days after the phones were launched.

It's obviously annoying when you find out that voice calls on your newly-bought smartphone don't go smoothly.

By the end of its first weekend on store shelves, Apple's AAPL iPhone 8 could only muster a 0.3% worldwide market share across all iOS-based devices, according to new data from researcher Localytics.
