Don't look now, but Apple may have another hardware controversy on its hands. With the iPhone 7 in the wild for two days now, there are some reports of a hissing noise from the A10 Fusion processor when the device is under a heavy load. Apple has weathered similar storms before, having seen Antennagate, Chipgate, Mapgate and Scuffgate already. Will this fall be the season of Hissgate?
As usual several reports from the supply chain and analyst sources are looking towards Apple's next generation of iPhones. First in line is new information about a metal iPhone 6c to be released early next year. The launch of this 4-inch iPhone upgrade marks a departure from Apple's annual refresh cycle. Speaking of which, the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 is expected to drop in September 2016 with a bevy of enhancements and an even thinner design. The concept above from Mesut G. Designs is loosely based on recent reports, featuring a 3D Touch home button embedded under the display itself.
