This is a very common problem, and as of now there is no fix. Apple may issue a recall in the future, but for now there is no fix I'm afraid.

I had this problem on my iPhone 7 Plus, I read somewhere that tightening the screws by the lightning port can help.

I tried and it helped a bit, but then I loosened them significantly and tightened them again - now it doesn't creak at all!

Hope this helps someone else.

It was getting pretty annoying and I'm really glad to have fixed it.

I actually solved my creaking problem too, I bought the replacement screws from ifixit and it fixed it completely I think the screws ifixit sells are a better fit than apples. My phone even feels more solid than before. I can tweak the body pretty hard and it won't make a sound.
