The iPhone 7 doesn’t look all that different from its predecessors, but the more you handle it, the more improvements you’ll find in it. The camera performs better, there are dual speakers, and Apple has finally made its flagship device water resistant.
Yes you did manage to get one, so you probably like it, but sometimes a single glitch can be enough to kill that fun. We have filtered the comments to identify the top issues for iPhone 7 users, and we also have some potential solutions and repairs to help you get the most from your device.
Lack of the 3.5 mm jack
Apple’s decision to kill Jack was understandably controversial. If you’ve ever invested in purchasing a pair of headphones based on the standard port that until now was found on all phones, then you have the right to be a little irritated.
Using the Lightning port also means that you will no longer be able to charge your iPhone 7 while you are using the headphones. There are a few workarounds you can consider, but there is no real solution for this problem.
An adapter comes with your iPhone 7, or you can choose to use a Bluetooth adapter. There are also many guides on the Internet on how to use your old headphones with your iPhone 7.

IPhone 7 whistles:
Many iPhone 7 owners have complained about a mysterious hiss coming from behind the device. It seems to be louder when the iPhone 7 is engaged in heavy tasks, for example when an application or a game is running, which suggests that it is bound to the processor. Place your ear next to the Apple logo and perform a task that requires a lot of power, in order to assess it yourself.
It should also be noted that many other devices and terminals will make hissing and other noises when under heavy stress – you will listen to it if you pay enough attention. It’s just that we don’t notice it most of the time.
This problem had affected so many people that Ars Technica and 9to5Mac ended up reporting it.
There is currently no workaround for this, but reports suggest that this is not a problem present on every iPhone 7. If this is really bothering you then, contact Apple, your carrier or your reseller and request a replacement.
Low battery life:
The battery life of the iPhone 7 should be much better than that of the iPhone 6S, thanks to a larger battery and the more efficient A10 Fusion chip. To many people on Apple’s discussion boards this appears to be the case, but we’ve also noticed some complaints about the rapid battery drain, with more recent complaints resulting from the iOS 10.2 update. .
Go for the latest update if you haven’t done so yet. Battery drain issues have been addressed in recent updates.
If you head into Settings> Battery, you can turn on “Power saving mode” to improve your battery life, but that comes at a cost. Mail search, Hey Siri, background app refresh, automatic downloads, and some visual effects will all be minimized or disabled, however, you can individually disable any of the above items for a slight improvement in the battery life. Head to “Battery usage” in Settings> Battery, and check if a particular app is consuming a lot of power. Consider updating, uninstalling, or replacing it.

Cannot activate a new iPhone 7:
Many people find it difficult to activate their new iPhone. If you receive a message about the application server being unavailable, Apple may simply be having difficulty dealing with the current volume or the number of people trying to access it. You can check the status here – if there is no green box next to iOS device activation, then try again later.
If you tried to do this using your mobile connection, switch to Wi-Fi instead.
Try resetting your iPhone by pressing and holding the Sleep / Wake button, then drag the slider to turn off the device completely. Press the Sleep / Wake button again to turn it on.
Make sure iTunes is up to date and try to connect your iPhone 7 to your computer and complete the activation using iTunes.
Contact your carrier and ask if there are any known issues with activating iPhone 7. You may need a spare SIM card.
Contact Apple if no solution works
