Apple washes its hands of the iPhone 7 microphone problem — 2022

Apple indirectly recognized in the middle of the year a problem with the microphones of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus after the multitude of complaints received from users. Although hardly any details were given by the Cupertino company, they began to repair it for free. But now this failure has resurfaced in the different company forums since apparently Apple has decided to back down and d try to fix this bug for free.

It has been two years since the iPhone 7 was officially launched and that is why e many of these devices are running out of any kind of warranty that the legislation currently offers, which we recall is two years.

The iPhone 7 microphone problem is back on the table

To remind you what this problem was, MacRumors gave voice to many users who claimed that Your iPhone's microphone was not working properly. When they started a hands-free conversation, the sound was quite muffled or cut off.

Apple did not directly admit this problem but it did start to repair it for free so we can say that this bug was acknowledged indirectly by the company. Everything seems to indicate that the problem resides in a pin that lost contact with the passage of time causing the microphone to lose quality when making phone calls or recording voice notes.

Now this has completely changed as published a few hours ago by the American media MacRumors. According to this new information, it has been possible to appreciate how users have started reporting this problem again intensely adding that Apple recommends that they carry out a repair that It has a cost of 300 dollars or trade it in for a refurbished iPhone.

This information only refers to various cases in the United States, but in Spain these problems have also begun to arise in the Apple forums, as our colleagues at MovilZona have collected. In our country, the repair can go through making a complete change of the motherboard that would amount to 400 euros, so it would be interesting to consider purchasing a new device before paying for this repair. Of course, it does not seem that this affectsproblems with the home button on iPhone 7nor to theiPhone 7 Plus battery issues.

As the warranty expires in Europe for these new iPhones, users they will be encountering a severe problem in their device that will force them to go through this expensive repair or buy a new iPhone. The question that we clearly ask ourselves is that if the problem is with Apple and its hardware, isn't the user within his right to have the repair free? Since this problem is not derived from misuse of the device or the passage of time.
