    Try it with the ‘rainbow’ retro wallpapers.. I don’t see it with them. Seems like it takes something with contrast.. I did see it with the Earth one.

    I consistently have that since day 1 on my iPhone 8 Plus. Doesn't bother me at all though. For me it's like the auto-brightness has some catching up to do or whatever.

    Definitely having this problem. Sometimes with audio playing in the background and especially when using the keyboard in other apps. Also with FaceTime calls on speaker crackling sounds every now and then - they become more apparent if you start using the keyboard while the call is in the background. Doesn’t always happen though.. software update didn’t fix this problem..

    I tried the hard reset and so far haven’t had this problem again. But who knows! Apple told me to go to the Apple Store and have an engineer check the air piece and this was after the so-called fix came out.. just press volume up, then volume down, then power button until it shuts down..

    i am having this issue as well. The software update did not fix it. Resetting the network settings did not fix it either.

    Well I feel ripped off. Today I finally went to upgrade my 6s+. Wanted to see the X and decided to go with the 8+ for now. Now I’m watching YouTube and am hearing all the crackling and piping while watching it. Searched google and found this forum. Did I just waists a bunch of money on a **** apple product?
    So just summarize... BRAND New iPhone 8+ running 11.1.2 (latest update realeased yesterday) and the crackling is still on there. WTF

    what does this have to do with the speaker? threadjacking = not cool.

    One month ago I upgraded from an iphone 6 to an iphone 7. Took it back 3 days later due to dropped calls and crackling and clicking in my hearing aids on bluetooth. 2nd Iphone 7 did the same thing. Now, after about 21 days, I went to an iphone 8 hoping to fix it. NOT. Every call has clicking or static sounds when using my hearing aids on bluetooth
