You can use a to remove dust or gunk that may have sneaked inside the holes of speakers and microphones on your iPhone. Once you have removed the particles of dust, check if the audio has started working normally on your device. If it has started to behave normally, you are good to go.
Remove Screen Protector
Due to the lack of a precise cutout, some thick and poor quality screen guards tend to block the microphone holes. Therefore, make sure the screen guard installed on your device has precise cutouts. If you find the screen guard faulty, remove it. After that, make a phone call to someone to check if the audio has returned to normal.
Force Restart Your iPhone
If the audio still seems to be ill-functioning, give a hard reset aka force restart to your iPhone. Bear in mind that the force restart is different from a normal restart. The reason why we recommend you to hard reset your iOS device is that it has the knack for troubleshooting random software glitches that tend to pop up out of nowhere now and then. Please don’t forget to take the backup of your iPhone on iTunes or iCloud before resetting it so that you can restore the data back after reset.
- Hard Reset iPhone 8, iPhone X Series, iPhone 11 Series, and 12 Series: Press the volume up button. Then, press the volume down button. Next, be sure to hold down the side button until the screen goes black and the famed Apple logo pops up on the screen.
- Hard Reset iPhone 7 and 7 Plus: Hold down the side button and the volume down button for a few seconds until the Apple logo shows up on the screen.
- Hard Reset iPhone 6s or earlier: Hold down the home button and the side/top button until the Apple logo appears on the screen.
After your iPhone has rebooted, make a FaceTime, WhatsApp or a normal phone call to a friend to figure out if the audio issue on your iOS device is resolved.
While iOS is known for smooth and snappy performance, it has a long history of being plagued by a host of annoying issues. Moreover, bugs have become a part and parcel of iOS these days. So, if your iPhone’s audio still does not seem to be functioning right, try updating the software. If the issue is due to outdated software or bugs, it could be easily sorted out by updating software.
