The iPhone is equipment that gives very good performance, however, and as with any other smartphone, we can find some setback. There are issues and issues but a phone not being heard or playing the sound very low is probably one of the biggest. After all, you can lose one of the most basic functionalities of a phone, such as making calls. In this we tell you different causes and possible solutions for thoseiPhone making weird sounds.

What exactly happens to an iPhone that doesn't ring?

First of all you have to know exactly what happens to the device, since there is a wide range of possibilities . These devices have two speakers, the main one that is located in the lower part next to the Lightning charger and the one that is in the upper part and that serves as a sound emitter in calls. It should be noted that this second speaker for calls also acts as a second speaker for content playback for several generations of iPhone.

Yes it's him top speaker the one that does not work when you are making a call, we find that there are several problems that may be causing it. On the one hand that it has broken due to a blow or a fall. It may also be that if the iPhone is new it may have been defective from the factory and in that case it will be covered by warranty. The other possibility that we find is that the speaker is perfectly fine and it is a software failure that causes it, that is, an iOS bug.

We can also attribute it to a failure of the speaker itself due to various factors beyond falls and bumps. One of these factors is water, the worst enemy of electronic devices and that could be the cause of the failure of this speaker because the area in which it is located is more likely to be the main one affected in these cases. The software bug could also be present here, although the one that can surely be the bug in the vast majority of cases is the one that causes dirt in the speaker, since dust can often get in between the cracks.

To these two explained cases are added the speakers that sound but sound at a lower volume than usual , which is not normal because this should not happen even due to a high level of wear on them. Of course, if the problem is intermittent and only sound is lost in some applications, surely we will find ourselves before a software problem.

What can be done to fix it?

If you think that your terminal may have dust on the speaker and this is the reason that it does not work correctly, we recommend tryingclean iphone speakerwith soft-bristled toothbrushes or very fine, lint-free cotton swabs. Yes, you have to have very careful with this cleaning, since it could damage the terminal if we do it carelessly and therefore trusting professionals could be the best option in this case.

If you have not managed to fix anything, several things can be done before giving everything up for lost and confirming that the device needs to be repaired. The first may seem a bit absurd but it is more common than we can believe: check that the sound switch is activated . We refer to the classic iPhone switch that is located on the left side of the phone, above theiPhone volume up and down buttons, sometimes this can be the cause of the problem and therefore the solution is to fix the mute switch on our iPhone.

We must also make sure that the sound is up and for this, in addition to raising the volume using the button, we must go to Settings>Sounds and vibrations to check that everything is correct. If we also find that everything is configured correctly here, we will have to make sure that we have the latest version of the operating system from Settings>General>Software update.

If, once these possible errors have been ruled out, the same problem continues, you can try restarting and restoring the device. Restart the device first, making it be off for a few seconds or minutes , since some internal process could be the cause of problems in the speakers and therefore by turning off the iPhone it can be ensured that said process will be closed. If the problem continues after this is done, the most recommended thing to do would be to restore the iPhone.

Normally we would not recommend restoring at this point, since if it has not been solved before, it is practically a fact that what is failing is the speaker itself. However, if you want to keep trying to fix it on your own, you can restore the iPhone in several ways. The first one, and less recommended, is from Settings>General>Reset>Erase contents and settings.

The other way to restore will be by connecting the iPhone to the computer by cable, either Mac or Windows, opening iTunes and clicking on the corresponding Restore option that appears in the program.

In addition to not reproducing sounds in a clear way, we can find that theiPhone does not vibratecorrectly, and that is why we must follow very similar steps in the accessibility section to restore it.

Where and how to take the iPhone to repair

If the problem has not been solved, you have several repair options. There are plenty of places where you can repair or replace your speaker, but if it's not an Apple-authorized shop, you lose some confidence that the components are of quality or will work well with your device. For this reason, we recommend going to the apple support website and contact them to make an appointment at an Apple Store or any of its Authorized Technical Services . From the Apple Support app you can also request an appointment at an Apple Store to solve the problem.

If you have an iPhone under warranty or with Apple Care, the repair may cost zero or even be free if it is due to a factory problem. If you are out of warranty, the price of the repair could vary depending on what model of iPhone you have, which speaker is the one that fails and if there are any other affected parts.
