With reports of Samsung 7s exploding on unsuspecting users, the iPhone’s hissing sounds add to the worrying trend of faulty smartphones.
Don't worry about that hissing sound, it's just the Samsung-supplier supplied battery, nothing to be concerned about.#HissGate— spockers™ (@spockerz) September 17, 2016

Not all iPhone 7s are subject to the hissing sound, but those who have experienced it are alarmed that their new, apparently ‘silent’ smartphones are struggling so audibly.
