Comment I have a theory (Score 1) 195

Apple have been pushing to get multiple suppliers for each part of the iPhone, I assume to get more certainty in supply and competitive prices.
Perhaps this is the reason why some people have issues and some don't.
Maybe they had a few bad batches of inductors or ceramic capacitors from a supplier that are noisy?
Maybe that's why some people have problems when upgrading their OS and some don't.
Foxconn isn't the only manufacturer they use. Not all iPhones of the same model have the same components inside.

They used to, and they used to be known for quality, stable devices. Since the supply chain diversification they're coming out as less stable, like everyone else.
