Apple decided to pull out thousands of iPhones because of an annoying issue. If this problem is also pestering you, then you also need to return yours.
Apple currently has an issue with its iPhone models, and it is quite annoying since it can affect your work or your bonding with friends or families. The specific problem involves the iPhone’s sound system.
Because of this issue, Apple was forced to recall thousands of faulty iPhones that have left their users unable to make phone calls. A small number of devices in the United States were shipped with dodgy components that kill off their speakers.
To help you better understand the disappointing situation, the problem with Apple’s defective iPhones is that the sound does not emit from the receiver when people make calls on affected devices. The giant tech creator event posted a bulletin on its website, confirming that a “very small percentage” of iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro devices were affected.
iPhone 12, 12 Pro Sound Issues
Impacted gadgets, which retailed for upwards of $1,000, were manufactured between October 2020 and April 2021, as explained by Apple. If you are one of the affected iPhone users, then you can return your device to one of the company’s official stores.
Rest assured that Apple would definitely tend to your needs, especially if your iPhone is confirmed to have an ongoing sound issue. However, if you don’t have time to return your device or visit their official stalls, then you can also try to fix it on your own.
Sometimes, the sound issue with Apple’s handset is only caused by fixable problems. To check if your device is suffering from this pestering issue, you can check the following:
- Your iPhone is not ringing,
- iPhone speaker stopped working,
- You can’t listen to music with our without headphones,
- Volume bar has disappeared,
- You hear no sound or distorted audio from your iPhone speaker,
If your Apple device has one of the symptoms above, you can rely on the following methods to fix the issue. However, you still need to remember that they are not 100% accurate.
- Always check if the silent mode button is activated.
- Try restarting your iPhone. Remember, restarting is very different from resetting the device.
- Check the default settings. Maybe the volume is just turned all the way down.
- Try unplugging and plugging your headset.
- Deactivate Bluetooth if it is on.
As of the moment, the giant smartphone maker’s consumers are still left with no choice but to return their device to one of the official stores just to fix certain issues.
However, the company confirmed that this would soon change, thanks to the arrival of its new Self Service Repair. This new initiative of the giant smartphone developer would arrive this coming 2022. However, the exact release date is not yet confirmed.
The new smartphone program would specifically target the iPhone 12 models, as well as the new iPhone 13 lineup. But, the company said that more models would be included after the service’s first launch.
