In this article, we’ll show you how to repair sound on the iPhone in a few different methods. This post will assist you if you can’t hear sounds during a phone call, while listening to music or viewing movies while playing games, or if you can’t hear any sound at all. Simply try out all of the options below to find which one works best for you.

Restart Your Phone

First and foremost. If your iPhone’s speaker isn’t working, the first thing you should do is restart it. Many software-related issues, such as iPhone sound not working, can be resolved by restarting your iPhone.

  • Simply long-press the Power button until a slider appears on your screen to restart your iPhone.
  • Drag the slider to the right and wait for your phone to completely shut down.
  • Long-press the Power button again after a few seconds until you see the Apple logo.

Check if you can hear sounds on your iPhone once it boots up, or try one of the other remedies below.

Test the iPhone Speaker

Before going any further, please double-check that the speaker is operational. You can accomplish this in a variety of ways, including playing a song, movie, ringtone, or even making a phone call over loudspeaker. For the sake of this article, we propose that you use the ring settings to test your iPhone speaker.

  • Select Sound & Haptics from your phone’s Settings app.
  • To increase the sound volume, move the volume slider to the right side of the Ring and Alerts area. If the speaker is working properly, you should hear a sound. If not, go to the iPhone repair shop or try one of the other solutions listed below.

Adjust Ring/Silent Switch

The Ring/Quiet switch on the iPhone is a fantastic hardware feature that allows you to set your phone in silent or ring mode with a single click. The Ring/Silent switch on your iPhone could be on any of the side frames.You have to move the switch towards the screen so that it is not exhibiting an orange colour. This will ensure that your iPhone is not silenced. If the switch has already been relocated toward your screen, open Control Center (swipe down from the top right corner of the screen) and turn off Silent Mode.

Turn off Do Not Disturb Mode

Do Not Disturb (DND) mode is a useful feature on the iPhone and most other smartphones that allows you to block sounds and notifications based on schedules or manually. You won’t get any alerts on your phone if DND is turned on, except for calls from starred contacts or alarms. If your iPhone’s sound has ceased working, make sure DND mode is turned off. Toggle off Do Not Disturb in Settings > Do Not Disturb. It’s also possible to change it through the Control Center.

Check The Volume

Meanwhile, you may have accidentally reduced the volume on your iPhone while using an app. Please open an app that plays sound, such as YouTube, Music, or any other app that does so. Using the Volume up button on your iPhone, try turning up the volume while playing content in the app. If the sound on your iPhone isn’t working during calls, try making a call and turning up the volume while you’re on the phone.

Turn off Bluetooth

To ensure that your full audio session is not transferred to a Bluetooth audio device, you may need to switch off Bluetooth on your iPhone at the same time. If you forget to disconnect and switch off your AirPods after using them, for example, the iPhone will continue to send your audio to them until you turn them off. Simply visit the Control Center on your iPhone and turn off Bluetooth to make sure this isn’t the case. You can also disable and reconnect Bluetooth by going to Settings > General > Bluetooth.

Update The Phone System

If you want to remedy your iPhone’s sound problem, make sure you’re running the most recent version of iOS. Apple’s culture is to fix faults on iPhones by rolling out software upgrades when they’re needed. So, if your iPhone sounds aren’t working and you’re not sure if you’re running the most recent iOS version, go to Settings and double-check.

  • Select “iPhone Settings” from the drop-down menu.
  • To check for pending updates, go to Software Updates and click it. Connect to a strong Wi-Fi network and download the update if one is available.


If you haven’t been able to resolve the iPhone not making sound issues, it’s time to call Apple support or a qualified repairer in your area.
