Issues with your iPhone 7/7+ ?

    I am seeing many threads popping up with various issues.

    It makes it a bit difficult for others on the fence whether or not they should get the iPhone. Hopefully, adding one thread and consolidating all the common issues might seem better organized.

    I just got NO service after going into Airplane Mode.

    Rebooting the phone seems to fixed it. This is a known issue.

    Have 2 iPhone 7 Plus phones and they both have the following issues:
    1. Yellow pictures in florescent lighting.
    2. Physical screen clicking and phone flexing. Reminds me of my old iPhone 6 that bent and had to be replaced.
    3. Minor hiss from processor under heavy load.
    If you're on the fence about it wait a bit for them to figure this crap out. If you have a 6S then don't bother. The only thing you are really getting is a camera update, and that camera update may be buggy or just bad. The 6s is plenty fast for everything in my opinion.

    I have noticed a screen rattle when you tap anywhere on the top quarter of the screen (7+).

    Same thing here, I think it's the camera and the optical image stabilisation, going to visit the Apple Store and see if any others have the same noise

    i think because this years its more prominent the noise seems louder than the iphone 6s

    I had no idea this was a previous issue. I haven't been following. Mine sounds the same as Jay's. Is this considered normal or do we need to swap the phone?

    Also, this issue I noticed, I think it may have something to do with iOS 10. It can take 20 or more seconds for the gps (location services/privacy) to shut off. On my iPhone 5 it was under 5 seconds.

    That's for sure the OIS. The camera is floating around in there. The probably can't do anything about that.

    The issue I described is clicking from the phone itself in the bottom right corner when squeezing it there. Like the screen is not fully attached.

    Yeah I'm beginning to make peace with it ,, does your phone make the same noise ?,, I had a clicking problem with my 6 plus and they replaced the screen which fixed it but get a new phone if I was you

    They're business phones for testing and the Engineering/QA teams are on me about when they get their phones for testing. Otherwise I would gladly send them both back.

    My 7 Plus clicks when gripped reasonably firmly. Never had a phone that did that. Not sure what to do about it, if anything.

    The yellow (not just warm) tints are pretty common every year, it seems. Remains to be seen if it's any worse this year than others.

    And yes, the hiss on load is unfortunate, but absolutely sounds like professor coil whine to me.

    The only issue I have right now is the camera takes pictures in RAW format where the Color Representation is "Uncalibrated" instead of sRGB, like it always used to be on previous iPhones.

    Therefore, I can't open any pictures taken on my iPhone in Photoshop, not unless I use another photo-editing program first and convert & export each picture into sRGB mode.

    It's a real PITA when you have lots of pics that you want to use.

    It seems that RAW pictures taken via the LightRoom app don't get saved to the camera roll and thus can't be accessed on the computer? Any workaround to this or do I have to use a different app to take RAW photos?

    Also has anyone had their camera freeze upon start up on the blurry screen and not react for a minute or so until it finally gets to viewfinder?

    I noticed an annoying static/crackle when using the lightning headphones while swiping the screen.

    It's happening 3 or 4 times a day for me, is it as severe for you?

    Wifi-assist is buggy.

    At first, wifi-assist worked perfectly. If you left wifi on, it would connect to the wifi signal seamlessly even though you were not in Airplane mode.

    Lately, however, it's not working as it should. It occasionally connects normally, but most times it does not. However, it works just fine if you are in Airplane mode and landline calls go through just fine.
