iPhone SE (2020) and iPhone 11 Pro users are reporting subtle click sound when using the iPhone. There is a weird clicking sound on swiping up to close the app and it also vibrates but it also has a weird clicking sound every time doing so. Even when tried to turning silent mode, turning system haptics off, resetting all my sounds and vibrations settings, turning off vibration in accessibility does not seems to help me.
The issue seems to be widespread across different iPhone models like iPhone 7+, iPhone X, iPhone SE are also making random sound clicks. The click sound seems to occur with some specific apps like youtube, Facebook Messenger.
