Why is my sound not working on my iPhone? How to fix it?


If you’re having trouble hearing your iPhone or iPad, it’s more than likely due to a weak or faulty speaker. There are several things you can do to fix this issue on your own:

Here is How to Fix Sound Issues on iPhone or iPad

Toggle on/off vibration checking

  • Press the side button and volume up button at the same time to toggle on/off your ringer.
  • This will also toggle on/off vibration. This is a temporary fix, but it may be enough for you to see if your problem is just temporary or not.

Check Your Switches

If you’re using an iPhone, you’ll likely find that there are two switches on the side of your phone. These switches can be used to mute the ringtone and vibrate mode.

To check these switches, press down on each one until they click into place. The switch should stop moving when you release your finger from pressing it down.

If this doesn’t happen, then either one or both of these options may not be working properly with your device (or they could even be broken).

Adjust Your Volume Limit

  • Go to Settings on your iPhone and select General.
  • Tap Accessibility, and then Hearing Aid Support if you have hearing issues or want to make sure that your phone can hear you better when playing audio tracks.
  • Next, tap Volume Limit at the bottom of this screen
  • You should see a slider bar here with three different settings: Lowest, Medium, or Highest volume limit for hearing aids; keep this at high until all other solutions fail!

Clean your iPhone Speaker

If you’re having trouble with your audio, the first thing to try is cleaning the speaker. If a damp cloth does not work, try using a cotton swab or compressed air canister. Some people even use toothpicks!

If those solutions don’t work. You’ll need to get out some extra equipment like electric toothbrush.

Check the Volume Limit Setting

  • Go to Settings.
  • Tap Sound, and then Volume Limit.
  • Set the volume limit to zero (or turn it off altogether).

Update iOS

In order to fix your sound, you need to update the software on your device. If you have an iPhone or iPad, open up the App Store and search for “iOS”. Select “Updates” from the menu on the left side of your screen.

You should see all of the updates available for each version of iOS that are currently available in Apple’s online store.

If there is no update available for download, try restarting your device by holding down both power buttons until it shuts off completely (you may also use a charger cable if necessary).

After this step has been completed successfully, turn back on again until it powers up normally. This should solve most issues with low volume output from speakers or headphones.

Reset All Settings (and then Restore)

If you’ve tried the above steps and still can’t get your sound to work, then it’s probably time for a reset.

  • Turn your iPhone off by holding down both Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time for 10 seconds until the screen goes blank.
  • Wait for 3-5 seconds before releasing both buttons to allow it to turn on again.
  • Press and hold down Power until you see an animation that says ‘slide to power off’. You will also see a warning message stating “Do not remove until power off.” Release power button when prompted by Apple software.

Repair iPhone Using iTunes and Backup

To repair your iPhone using iTunes and backup, follow these steps:

  • Connect your device to your computer.
  • Open iTunes on your Mac or PC and click on “Devices” in the top menu bar. This will display all of the devices connected to your computer like tablets and phones, but only if they’re compatible with iOS 11 or later. You can also find it by searching for “iTunes.”
  • Click on one of those devices listed under Devices in the left sidebar so that its icon appears next to “Backup” (in red).


Now that you know how to fix sound issues on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, there’s no reason to worry. The great thing about devices like these is that they are very user-friendly and easy to work with.
