Business Insider explained the problem as occurring ‘after you’ve left the EarPods plugged into the iPhone 7’s Lightning port for a few minutes.

That’s United States dollars 424.20 less than the asking price for the 32GB model but, as IHS highlights, it’s the smallest margin it has seen on an iPhone for some time.

While this isn’t the type of bug that makes the iPhone 7 unusable, it could get pretty annoying for anyone listening to audio on their iPhone for an extended period of time. The latest smartphone from Apple comes with a number of improvements but has a similar design to the previous version. It is known that the new iPhone phablet has a dual camera and a portrait mode that mimics shallow depth of field images, while all the attention is on the front subject.

By comparison, the iPhone 7 actually costs about $13 more to manufacture than its predecessor, the iPhone 6S. Furthermore, the most costly component incorporated in the iPhone 7 is its 4.7-inch display screen which sets Apple back by $39. However, that is not stooping the tech giant’s ability to make huge profits from the sales of its new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

IHS Markit performed a teardown analysis of the iPhone 7 and that’s how it came up with the estimates. Even double tapping the home button will bring up a music player.

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are the first iPhones that claim to be water resistant.

IHS also noted that the new Jet Black colour option on offer raises costs, and is perhaps why this model proved so popular at launch.

Apple itself has never revealed its actual per-unit cost to build an iPhone. The add-on lets users create a bokeh effect in their photos using the power of the device’s twin cameras.
