    I am uncomfortable to use iPhone in such configuration where top ear piece also functions as speaker. Going by Apple's recent software quality, I will always worry if the speaker volume fails to adjust and the speaker blasts off with full volume in my ears.

    Maybe Apple has nailed the mechanism in thier software. But a simple thing like using a future iOS beta can cause it to malfunction and make you deaf.

    Also make sure to remove your tinfoil hat before using, wouldn't want your brain being microwaved from the cell signals.

    Haha funney!!

    No tin foil hat and no sarcasm as well. Just a genuine concern. I have a friend who went partial deaf in one ear because of of a similar problem.

    I'm pretty sure apples found a way to implement it Correctly.

    That little speaker would have to put out over 140dB to cause acoustic trauma. That little speaker isn't putting that out.

    Maybe there's some kind of hardware failsafe switch that if it detects the face is against the earpiece, it does a hard limit to the volume or something? But yeah, I could see it going very wrong—especially if it happens while driving, even though you're not supposed to.
