Note7, 18 Sep 2016coil gate! You can fix this issue with Software Update 10.0.0.1.1 ! It will make the processor... moreThis will not make iphone to explode so users are safe, but note 7? hahaha it has an explosion feature.
I bet they won't make such a big issue about this as they would if it was a Samsung phone.
It's reported that Note 7 units which happened to blown up also produced quite similar sound to this .... just saying , so iPhone users be advised , if you hear this sound coming form your new iPhone 7 make sure to throw it in nearest river,lake,pool,bathtub,jacuzzi, well , canal, sewer , etc. .. to cool it down before explodes and burns your house, car or causes injuries .
This is what happens when you batter your component makers to make parts cheaper because you tell them that you will go else where. So you can make the phone for cheaper but you can sell less and still keep your profit margin
LG superfan, 18 Sep 20162016 the year of 7, dual cameras and defected phones (G5, Note7, iphone7)HTC 10 is the way then (or nexus)
My 7+ has coil whine as well, I'm going to return it tomorrow and keep my OnePlus 3 instead. I upgraded from 6S after 4 years of iOS. My experience with Android so far in the last month since I got the 3 has been a mixed bag, with the newer firmware upgrades things seem to be settled down. Not very satisfied with the 7+ though as I had expected more. The cameras seem a little better in low light, even the battery looks to be a little better because I usually have about 30% at the end of the day, where my OP3 already warns me that I have less than 15%. I expected more at this price point though.

A CPU/SoC doesn't have a coil inside it therefore it can't produce coil whine. However, part of the circuitry that feeds a CPU power contains coils, these coils are the ones that might "whine". The CPU itself can not "whine".
The article mentioned "processors" producing coil whine, that's not exactly correct. In computers that would be the motherboard since that's what has coils. Computer PCIe Graphics Cards come on a board (PCB), that board has coils that could also potentially "whine".
Better quality coils(chokes) wouldn't produce that sound when the silicone chip they are feeding power to is being stressed.
TSMC's manufacturing node is called 16nm FinFET. Samsung's is 14nm FinFET. The name is no indication of which is better since the numbers are a misleading.
Apple's A10 SoC seems to be manufactured on TSMC's 16nm FinFET node.
The component Apple needs to replace are the chokes not the SoC.

There is always an issue when the iphone increases in number. A "gate" of some sort. That's why its wise to get the "S" generation of the iphone, because that is where they fix the "gate" issues of the predecessor. So if you have a 6s now. Its much better to wait for the 7s.
Apple dose not manufacture ANY hardware in its products, even its CPUs are manufactured by other companies.
I am not sure, but maybe the iPhone 7 CPU is manufactured by Samsung.
Akinaro, 18 Sep 2016Those are ghost sounds of removed mini-jack.Nice one:))
The phone is screaming from the deepest part of its heart for the headphone jack.
The funny thing is that i was searching for laptops, and the skylake(maybe M processors) series from Intel are doing coil noise.14 and 12 nm too much?isnt apple cooperating with Intel?
