Common Causes of a Broken iPhone Speaker

Several factors may be causing your phone’s speaker to malfunction. However, the following are some of the most common:

  • Physical or chemical damage
  •  Bluetooth® problems
  • A stuttering headphone
  • It’s connected to Airplay®.
  • The silent mode is activated.
  • A clogged or dirty speaker port
  • A problem in the software

There are a few things you can try at home to get your speaker back up and running.

  • Press and release the volume up button quickly.
  • Press and release the volume down button quickly, then press and hold the side button for a few seconds.
  • Release the side button when the Apple logo® displays.

  • Clean those areas with a dry, soft-bristled brush if necessary.

Turn the Volume up to the Top

You might not be able to hear anything if the volume on your iPhone is turned down. To check the volume of the sound:

  • To raise the volume level, unlock your iPhone and press the Volume Up button (on the left side).
  • “Hey Siri, turn up the volume,” you can also say to Siri®.

Check Your iPhone’s Sound Settings

This can be done in a variety of ways.

Do Not Disturb

Many calls and sounds will be silenced when Do Not Disturb is turned on. If you want to make sure Do Not Disturb is off, go to Settings > Do Not Disturb or Settings > Focus > Do Not Disturb and turn it off there.

Silent Mode

In the upper-left corner of your device, double-check that your Silent Mode setting is set to Ring rather than Silent. Simply move the switch forward toward the screen until the orange disappears. When you see orange on your device, it signifies that it is in silent mode.)

Check Ringer

Look for the Ringer and Alerts slider in Settings > Sounds & Haptics. Drag the slider back and forth with your finger. You’re good to go if you hear a sound. Your iPhone speaker may need to be serviced if you don’t, or if the speaker button near the slider is dimmed.

iOs Update

It’s possible that your phone’s operating system (OS) is out of date, causing software troubles. Here’s how to double-check that you’re running the most recent version:

  • Connect your iPhone to Wi-Fi by plugging it into your charger.
  • Go to Settings > General > Software Update and select it.
  • Tap Download and Install if a software update is available. Tap Continue if a message appears requesting you to temporarily uninstall apps.
  • Enter your passcode if prompted. The software upgrade will begin on its own.

Disable Silence Unknown Callers

You won’t receive calls from unknown numbers that aren’t saved in your contacts if the Silence Unknown Callers setting is switched on. (The Silence Unknown Callers setting may be turned off by going to Settings > Phone and tapping Silence Unknown Callers, then turning it off.)

Disable Bluetooth

While Bluetooth is fantastic for playing music from your iPhone thru an external speaker, if you turn it on while trying to call your doctor, the sound won’t come out of your phone while you’re trying to call. To disable it, go to Settings, touch Bluetooth, and turn it off.

Disconnect Your Headphones

Your iPhone may get locked in Headphone Mode, which means that all noises are played through your headphones rather than the speaker on your iPhone. Your iPhone may also believe your headphones are connected even if they aren’t. The following steps can be taken to correct this problem:

  • Check to see if your headphone jack is free of dirt and debris.
  • Insert your headphones and swiftly remove them.
  • Disconnect your Bluetooth-connected headphones and listen to the sound.

Reset Your Settings

Try resetting your iPhone settings if you’ve tried everything else and your sound still isn’t working. This will have no effect on your messages, apps, or media files, but it will reset your sound and display settings.

What follows is an example:

  • Settings > General > Transfer or Reset iPhone (optional)
  • Select Reset and then Reset All Settings. Perhaps you’ll need to enter your passcode.
    To reset all of your settings, go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset all of your settings
