    I have an iPad air, and it is great. I am normally good with identifying problems and fixing them but I'm not too sure about this one. Whenever my iPad is on charge and I have my earphones plugged in (I have tried it with many) I hear a low pitched buzzing/humming noise, which can get annoying if I am trying to listen to something. Interestingly the buzzing stops when I touch the aluminium casing, so I am assuming that it is an electrical issue if it is an issue at all. Many thanks

    The hum stops when you unplug from the charger, correct?
    Are you using Apple's charger, or something else?

    Could be a bad charger, or even a bad cable from the charger to you iPad.
    But, yes, take in to Apple, they will sort it out.

    I experience a similar humming sound when I plug my Aux and Charger at the same time. Let us know what you find out! Gotta take mine in too!
