I am an iPhone User. Recently I had stucked into a problem that after upgrading to iOS 12, I couldn’t hear Sound on my phone calls. Because of this serious issue, I had missed my important official calls and even I couldn’t hear the sound of the person from the other end. Somehow, I had fixed this issue with the help of tricks suggested by my friend Jerrick. Here, I gonna share those tricks with you so that you can also make use of it.
Fix 1: Remove iPhone Case
Sometimes, the case of your iPhone may block the rear microphone so that the sound quality of your device will be poorer. What you have to do is… just remove the iPhone case cover and check whether that your microphone is not damaged.
Fix 2: Turn Off Bluetooth
Go to Settings -> Bluetooth and then turn it off.
Fix 3: Turn Off Noise Cancellation Mode
- Launch Settings -> General.
- Tap Accessibility -> Phone Noise Cancellation
- Turn Off Phone Noise Cancellation Mode.
Fix 4: Force Restart/Hard Reset (iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X)
- Press Volume Up button and quickly release it.
- Then press Volume Down button and quickly release it.
- At last, press and hold the Side button (Wake/Sleep button) until the Apple logo appears.
Note: Don’t press Volume Up button and Volume Down button at the same time.
Fix 5: Clean the Debris
