As we all know that the all-new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus arrived at the end of this week; the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus promise to revolutionize the market for smartphones. With all its new features, they already had achieved a very great interest of consumers before launch.

However, like everything in this life, all that glitters is not gold, as the Apple users are very demanding. It is no wonder, after making a good “investment,” we want an indestructible, infallible, and the prettiest device.

But two days after being it’s available, it started receiving its first complaints from its consumers or users. The iPhone 7 is making a strange noise whenever it is required further processing. The HissGate arrived!

Apple has a history of recent problems in the launch of new models. The best known is the BendGate, which showed the ease with which the iPhone 6 Plus is doubled. Even now, there are problems with this model, as you can see with the Touch Disease. But, of course, they also remember the ChipGate, which showed no differences in the iPhone 6S processors due to being from different manufacturers.

What is “HissGate”?

Basically, it is a little buzz emitted by the iPhone 7. From what has been reported by users in this problem manifests itself, and is not a situation that is happening to everyone, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus makes a strange noise when these devices or their processor is running at full power or with high levels of processing. Additionally, there is also a problem emerging high heating, which may be the physical cause of this problem.

After these moments of load and when the device returns to its normal processing values, the noise automatically disappears, returning to work normally. The video below shows the noise that is heard in these situations.

Apple does not have an opinion on this problem and does not have any proper solution for this. Hence, what is happening to whom report is an indication to head to an Apple store for replacement of the device.

The problem here is that Apple stocks are close to zero, and there are no models to perform the exchange. The statement shows that only after 5 to 7 days will devices be available for exchange, making the users very unhappy.


Probably the HissGate associated with a problem of a manufacturer, and it is not a design flaw. However, it could be possible to solve it with a simple software update and involve exchanging devices.

While Apple has not yet made any public statement or recall regarding the mysterious or strange hissing sound, it did offer to replace the smartphone of Stephen Hackett, of course why it should not be, as he was the first person who pointed it out first.
