Question: iPhone X - Weird clicking sounds made by taptic engine (?)

Sometimes, my iPhone X makes weird "clicking" sounds caused by taptic engine / vibration when leaving control center. This also can be reproduced if you choose vibration mode S.O.S. for example and keep pressing it several times in a row. Anyone else noted this behaviour?

iPhone X, iOS 11.2, null

Answer:
Answer:

iOS 11.2.5 appears to have solved this issue! After updating I am only experiencing a normal smooth haptic feedback.

I'm experiencing the same problem. The haptic feedback (in the beginning sometimes, now next to always) create a noticeable clicking sound when I dismiss the control center (by sliding up) and when dismissing reachability (by sliding up). It sounds metallic and off, as if something is loose or broken.


It occurs when the sound is turned on, although I have had a couple occurrences (clicks) using force touch in silent mode.


Like you write, the behavior can also can be reproduced (sometimes - not always) when selecting the vibration pattern S.O.S. or when changing vibration patterns rapidly.


I have sent feedback to Apple and been in touch with Apple Support in Norway. They hadn't heard about the issue. Since some people say that the iOS 11.2.5 Beta has helped, I think our best bet is to wait for the official update and see if it helps. Hopefully it won't be long.

IM HAVING THE SAME ISSUE!

I thought I was crazy when my haptic feedback was vibrating when it is obviously turned off. When I put my ear close to the phone, it also makes a buzzing (zzzz) sound. The dull/muted haptic feedback occurs inconsistently and sometimes they are at different vibration strength. It all started on dec 21/22 for me.

I’m experiencing this issue with 11.2.6. It just started this week. It seems to only be when I hold the phone horizontally. I typically notice it when using the app switcher. Anyone else still seeing the problem?
