    Hey everyone,

    While playing with the awesome new iOS 5 update I noticed a very small and weird speakerproblem. Being in a very silent room, when I swiped from the Homescreen to the Spotlightscreen and the keyboard appeared, I heard this very soft crackle coming out of the speaker. Immediately after that, this very soft noise was coming out. It is as if the speaker is turning itself on. When I swiped back again, a very soft crackle came out again and the noise was gone, as if the speaker is turned off.

    After playing a while with this, I noticed that this speakerbug comes up when the keyboard appearss on the screen, i.e. typing an email, note, website etc. It seems that the speaker is turning itself on to be able to make the keyboard clicksounds when tapping a key, and turning off when the keyboard dissappears from the screen. When I toggled the keyboard clicksounds off in Settings -> Sounds, the crackling and the noise dissappeared when a keyboard came up.

    Attention : You have to be in a VERY silent room to be able to hear this. The crackling and the noise are very soft (despite the volumesetting). Try to put your ear next to the speaker and swipe to the Spotlightscreen.

    Does anyone else have this?

    Not strange at all. Try plugging in headphones and doing it. It's done this since forever.

    How is it not strange?
    Am I failing to see a purpose as to why it is activating the speaker by swiping across the screen?

    Hmm, I noticed it only in iOS 5 but then again, the crackling is so soft so it could be that I didn't notice it before.

    Anyone else tried this?

    Yep, it does it on my iPad 1. Have never noticed before.

    Strange? Yes, of course it's strange.

    Just tried it on my old iPhone 3G and it has the same thing!

    I guess it was there since the first iPhone and it was just too soft to be heared.

    Ah ha! Think I've worked out the reason for this. The sound seems to start whenever the keyboard pops up, as of course it does when you go the spotlight screen. My guess is that the speaker becomes active to enable keyboard 'clicks'.
