Why Is My Music Playing Through The Ear Speaker?

If your music is playing through the ear speaker instead of the main loudspeaker on your iPhone, here are some potential reasons and steps to troubleshoot:

1. Check for any physical obstructions on the loudspeaker: The loudspeaker can be blocked by debris/dirt/dust, which can result in muffled sound or no sound at all. It’s important to check if there is any dirt or debris that may be blocking your loudspeaker, and gently remove it.

2. Check Audio Settings: Make sure your audio settings are properly configured. Sometimes, the audio settings can be set to “Ear Speaker” which can cause the music to play through the ear speaker instead of the loudspeaker. To check this, go to Settings > Sounds & Haptics and ensure the “Change with Buttons” feature is turned off.

3. Restart your phone: Try restarting your phone if the issue persists. Sometimes, restarting the device can help by resetting any software or hardware issues.

4. Check the speakers with another app: Open a different app that uses audio to determine if the issue is with one specific app or is a general problem across the entire device.

5. Update iOS: Make sure your device is running the latest version of iOS. If it’s not up to date, update it as soon as possible. Sometimes, software glitches can be resolved by updating the operating system.

6. Check for hardware damage: If the issue still persists, it’s possible that your loudspeaker might be damaged. In this case, you’ll need to take it to a professional to repair or replace it.

Why is my iPhone bottom speaker not working?

There could be several reasons why the bottom speaker on your iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, or iPhone 14 Plus is not working. However, before going to a professional repair shop or Apple store, you can try the following steps to fix the issue:

1. Check the speaker grille for dirt or debris: One of the most common reasons for speaker issues is debris or dirt getting stuck in the speaker grille. This can block the sound from coming out of the speaker and may cause distortion as well. You can try cleaning the speaker grille using a soft-bristled brush or a dry toothbrush.

2. Restart your iPhone: It’s possible that there is a software glitch that’s causing the speaker to malfunction. Try restarting your iPhone to see if it fixes the issue.

3. Check the volume level: It’s possible that the problem lies with the volume being too low or muted. Make sure you haven’t accidentally muted the bottom speaker or turned down the volume.

4. Check for iOS update: Sometimes, software updates can cause issues with the speaker. Check if there is an update available for your iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro or iPhone 14 Plus. If there is, update your iOS to the latest version.

If the above steps don’t fix the issue, it’s best to seek help from a professional repair shop or Apple store. There could be hardware damage or a faulty component that needs to be replaced.
