Troubleshoot iPhone Speakers
Software: App or OS Update
How to fix:
- Plug and unplug your headphones. Gently pull the headphone out of the headphone jack and wait for a few seconds before plugging it back in. The phone is likely to run its default processes as soon as the headphone comes in contact with the jack again. This process can help reboot the software and recognize whether the headphone is in the jack or not.
- Restart your iPhone. Often the answer to many software issues is to reboot, which also applies to your mobile phone. If the software reboots, it is likely to run its default processes and know if there is a headphone connected or not.
- Enable and disable airplane mode. If you are using wireless Bluetooth headphones, enabling the Airplane mode will turn off the WiFi, cellular, and Bluetooth connections. You can also try this even if you are using wired headphones.
- Connect to a different headphone, speaker, or device. You can also reboot the phone’s algorithm by changing the audio output or connecting to another speaker. Find a wireless audio device that you can use and pair your iPhone to it. Check if your phone’s audio plays on the device. If it does, you can disconnect your iPhone and check if the headphone mode is fixed.
- Reset network settings. Try rebooting your phone’s network by resetting the settings and removing all saved connections.
Hardware: Dust and moisture buildup in the headphone jack, sudden headphone disconnection, and use of low-quality headphones.
- Remove debris, dust, or moisture from the headphone jack. Use a flashlight and a Q-tip or a thin tool to reach into the jack and clean it. Avoid using toothpicks or anything that could break and get stuck inside the headphone jack.
- Use compressed air to force any debris or dirt from inside the headphone jack. You can borrow from a friend or purchase a can of compressed air from your nearest hardware store.
- Check if the Liquid Contact Indicator (LCI) is activated, which could mean that your iPhone has water damage.
- Avoid potential damage by unplugging headphones when not in use.
