The complaints header, "iPhone 8: crackling static noise during calls", describes the problem thus: "It's intermittent - on some calls you can perfectly notice it on others no problem". The delays may have been a contributing factor in a decision by Apple to ask suppliers to withhold some shipments for iPhone X devices, as reported by Digitimes on Monday.
Apple is paying 149 service charges for iPhone 8's screen exchange and $ 169 for iPhone 8 Plus's screen exchange. For those unaware, the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X support wireless charging. Similarly, the entry-level iPhone 8 Plus costs $288.08 to make compared with $270.88 or the iPhone 7 Plus.
Chinese regulator TENAA has revealed that the iPhone X sports the same amount of RAM as the less revolutionary iPhone 8 Plus - 3GB.
Another worry about the iPhone is that consumers will wait to see the iPhone X, which will launch well after the iPhone 8.
Apple will likely save its flashy new features for the next major software releases, likely to be 11.1 sometime later this year. Many Apple fans say running newer iOS software on an older device is like getting a new coat of paint for your auto.
Apple's sales and earnings in the December quarter could be pressured by customers choosing lower priced handsets and iPhone X sales being pushed into 2018, Lamba said.
Some users have claimed that the new update sapped battery performance on their iPhone by as much as 50 percent, with iPhone 7 users seemingly worst affected. The company is hoping that its new iPhones will deliver, and if they don't, we can expect Apple stock to fall further.
A large part of the problems making the phone is because of Apple's TrueDepth camera system, the report says. Surprisingly, Apple released the update without any prior beta testing, as it wasn't released the official update to developers to test. Localytics' data is based on an analysis of 70 million iOS devices in use around the world.
