Apple will fix iPhone 8's earpiece noise issue with a software update


After the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus reached customers last week, some users noticed an issue with the handsets' earpieces. More exactly, during phone calls or FaceTime calls, random crackling or static noises can be often heard - on various carriers and in different countries. Thankfully, Apple has acknowledged this problem, and is working to fix it. 

According to The Verge, Apple says the earpiece issue is only affecting "a small number" of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus owners. The company further said that an upcoming software update will solve the problem - which means we're not talking about faulty hardware here. However, right now, there's no word on exactly when the update will be rolled out (though we imagine it's going to arrive in the near future).

It's obviously not cool to buy an expensive handset and find out that voice calls don't go smoothly on it. Thus, it's nice to see that Apple is quickly responding to this issue, and a fix is on its way.
