According to 9to5Mac, there have been confirmed reports with several users facing the same issue while using the new iPhones.
Stephen Hackett at 512 Pixels was the first to point out the odd sound emanating from his phone and others immediately confirmed they were having the same issue, including TechCrunch's Darrell Etherington.
While the hissing sound is alarming, Engadget says that it is still worth mentioning that the devices still function well.
iPhone 7 and particularly iPhone 7 Plus users have noticed the sound while setting up their devices or doing something intensive.
Fortunately, for Stephen Hackett, Apple will be replacing his iPhone 7 Plus with a new one.
Apple expert Marco Arment described the situation as "ungraceful", but a possible reality now the iPhone 7 Plus is such a processing powerhouse. Users have reportedly voiced out their concern over the alarming "hissing" sound on social media. Some components of a processor may vibrate under heavy load, which creates the whining sound. 3DMark "Ice Storm Extreme" is a performance benchmark which puts intense strain on a processor to test its efficiency. Many have equated the sound to that of whirling fans a user may hear when their computer is overworked.
While this issue is nothing compared to an exploding battery, it raises concerns about Apple's quality checks.
It's unclear how widespread the issue is, or which components of the phone may be responsible for the freakish sound. But in a quiet room, with the phone under heavy load, this is what Hackett recorded, and it doesn't sound normal at all.
