Why is there no sound on my iPhone?
In most cases, you accidentally leave your iPhone in silent mode or forget that the volume is set to minimum. In some cases, your iPhone may have a temporary glitch that may be detected during normal use.
In rare cases, you may have a problem with a third-party app. Therefore, there is no audio output from third party apps.
Finally, the possibility of hardware damage cannot be ruled out. If your iPhone falls hard, your speaker system may be damaged. Contact Apple Support or an Authorized Service Center for hardware fixes in this case.
Now that you know the possible causes, let’s look at a solution to address this issue.
How to fix an issue where there is no sound on iPhone calls and videos
1. Check the silent switch
There is no icon in the top bar or control center to indicate if your iPhone is in silent mode. This small omission has long frustrated iPhone users. And if you’re the one who switched from Android, it infuriates you.
People put their iPhone into silent mode before the meeting and forget about it. The lack of visible symbols unintentionally leaves the phone silent, and there is no sound when you receive a new notification or call.
To fix this, make sure the ring / silent switch is turned on (ring mode). If it is down (silent mode), an orange band will be displayed.
2. Check the control center and turn up the volume
While listening to a song or watching a video, press the volume up button on the left side of your iPhone. You can also bring the control center and drag the volume slider up.
3. Make sure DND and Focus are turned off on your iPhone
If the moon icon is purple instead of white when using the iPhone Control Center, it means that your iPhone is in silent mode. This will mute calls, messages and app notifications. To make your iPhone sound, tap the crescent icon to turn off DND.
If you are using iO5 15, words such as “work”, “sleep”, “personal” and their icons may appear in the Control Center. This means that you have enabled Focus to mute the sound on your iPhone. To fix this, turn off focus.
The DND icon and focus icon are also displayed on the iPhone lock screen. To make sure your iPhone rings, you can turn it off directly from the lock screen by tapping or pressing the icon.
4. Test iPhone speaker
The above three solutions have prevented the problem from being created by us. Now let’s quickly test your iPhone speaker before moving on to the next fix.
Open iPhone Setting → Sound and touch →[RINGERANDALERTS]Drag the slider below. If you hear the iPhone ringtone, that’s great. The speaker is working!
Follow the steps below to fix a no sound issue (caused by software). However, if you don’t hear any sound, there may be a hardware problem.
In addition, you can open Safari, YouTube, Music app, Spotify, or similar media app to play something. Can you hear the sound? If yes, the iPhone speaker is fully functional. If not, that’s bad news!
5. Restart your iPhone
This simple solution helped multiple people fix the iPhone no sound issue. To restart your iPhone, first turn it off and then turn it on again after a minute. Once that is done, the no sound issue will be fixed.
6. Check for third party apps
If you’ve followed the steps above and your third-party app isn’t sending sound output, check your internal sound settings (if any). For example, if your iPhone video doesn’t make any sound, make sure the volume settings in your video streaming app are okay.
It is also helpful to kill the app and reopen it. In addition, if iPhone Audio does not work with this app, please update it from the App Store or remove it and reinstall it.
7. Make sure the app can send voice notifications
iOS provides powerful notification customization. If you don’t hear sound notifications from a particular app, you may have turned off the app. Here’s how to fix this:
- Open iPhone Setting Tap notification..
- Tap app name..
- Check the toggle sound Green’s.
Note: The app may send notifications that intentionally make no sound. In most cases, these silent notifications are about offers, new products, and so on.
8. Clean the speaker grill
Are you worried about the lack of sound on your iPhone? If yes, the speakerpiece may be blocked by the case or dirt. Remove obstacles and clean the upper earpiece grill.
In addition, be careful when cleaning the lower speaker grill. Use a soft, dry brush. Do not use sharp objects such as pins. A guide on how to clean your iPhone will help.
9. iPhone stuck in headphone mode!
In rare cases, the iPhone may mistakenly determine that the wired headphones are still connected. Therefore, the audio will be sent there and there will be no sound on the iPhone speaker. There is another guide to fix this issue. Learn how to deal with iPhone stuck in headphone mode.
Note: The same thing can happen with Bluetooth.Open Setting App, tap Bluetooth, Turn off.
10. Update iPhone
We always recommend running the latest version of iOS on your iPhone. This will update everything and all third party apps and services will work properly.
If iPhone audio doesn’t work, go to the following URL to get the latest version of iOS. Setting → General → Software update → Download and install..
11. Reset all settings
Finally, despite all the solutions, is the iPhone volume still not working? If yes, reset all settings. If there are no hardware issues, this will definitely fix the issue.
However, resetting all settings has its drawbacks. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, notifications, VPNs, keyboards, and any settings you change or add over time will revert to their default state.
However, personal things such as photos, videos, music, apps, and app data are not affected. Still, it’s a good idea to make a backup before proceeding.
- Open iPhone Setting Tap General → reset..
- Tap Reset all settings I will continue.
- Once that’s done, the sound problem won’t go away!
12. Contact Apple Support
Finally, if none of the above solutions helped to get the iPhone sound back, it’s probably a serious hardware problem. The best way is to contact Apple Support to correct your visit to the physical store.
I hope the above solution helps. You should now see the sound on your iPhone. We hope you enjoy the media. The device rings when you receive an incoming call, text message, or app notification.
