It has a ridiculous name, but that is a serious problem. The case of "Loop disease" is reported that the number of iPhones is increasing in the repair shop.
This is not a new virus or iOS bug. Instead it is a hardware problem affecting the previous iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus units.

This sounds like a software problem, but in fact it is the result of the loosening of the audio chip from the motherboard. For repair, you need a skilled hand using a microscope and a soldering iron.
Apple knows about "loop disease".
Apple is aware of this problem. An Apple spokesman said, "If you have questions about devices that customers can contact AppleCare, they are considering a very small number of reports that affect iPhone 7's microphone." Motherboard.
There is no mention of what the company is doing about this problem yet. Probably the best owner of the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus can hope Apple will repair the chip after the warranty expiration date of the device.
