Has the hissing issue been fixed or is it still a hit or a miss? i am about to pull the trigger on an iPhone 7 or a SE and was just wondering if the older issues have been sorted out.

Yes it has been fixed

How do you know this? Do you have a citation or source you can provide? Because from my understanding, it still does exist. I have two colleagues who have purchased iPhone 7's, and one of the iPhone 7's was hissing when he tested the video recording. And this was within the last 30 days.

I have the new RED 128gb iPhone 7 plus, and unlike my previous two 7 pluses, this one doesn't do the noise at all where the previous two did. So maybe they did fix it.

My new week old iPhone 7 hissed only during the initial restore from backup last week. But only heard it when putting it up to the ear. Otherwise, haven't heard anything since.

Have the newer builds been able to address the issue where the phone emits hissing when under load? or when recording a video?

Thanks

Didn't you state in another thread that you purchased your iPhone 7 Plus back in beginning of April?

OP: I do know a few individuals that have purchased the iPhone 7/7+ at the end of March and still have encountered the hissing issue with recording. My 7 Plus does not hiss, week 43 was the build for mine. So perhaps something has changed between now and then.
