    Hi,

    For the last week or so my 12.9 Pro (128GB wifi, in case that is relevant) has frequently produced a sharp burst or crack of sound shortly after unlocking the screen. It doesn't do it every time, but maybe 7-8 times out of 10. It seems to do it slightly more often when the screen auto-unlocks due to Smart Cover being opened.

    Has anyone else experienced this? I'm using the latest non-beta build of iOS. I'm a little concerned this is a hardware fault so I want to try and address it whilst I'm still within warranty!

    Cheers for any suggestions!

    I can't say as to why it would be doing that, but my IPP certainly doesn't do that. 128GB/wifi as well, FWIW. Interesting though. When you drag up from bottom of screen does it show any media playing/trying to play?

    Thanks for the reply. It sounds like a brief burst of sound, like if you insert a microphone into a live amp. I've had it over 9 months and it's just started doing this.

    There's not any media trying to play that I can see.

    Never had this happen. If you can get it to do the sound at the Apple place, they should take care of it. Being intermittent I am not so sure.

    I'll do some experiments to see if I can nail down the trigger factors...

    At least it sounds like it isn't a common problem due to a recent iOS update.
