If you'd like, you can upload a clip to soundcloud and share it here for us, maybe somewhere here can identify the noise in your recording and suggest a specific solution.

Good luck!

Maybe your mic was pointed at the fretboard and it got a little too much squeak? Try pointing it towards the joint where the neck meets the body, that's where the fullest tone is projected from.

Do you ever record with equipment other than an iPhone?

After this thread, I listened closely to the $4k Gibson J-45 I'm borrowing and hear slight ringing at the headstock. It's just overtones from the tops of your strings.
