When you turn on the Apple Music on your iPhone and start to play the newest song of your favorite singer, you hear no sound from your iPhone. So, you use other apps to have a try, but nothing happens. You have to admit that you get a serious problem: iPhone no sound issue.

It seems a small glitch, though you cannot fix it whatever you do. You do not want to go out and ask the Apple store to repair it which may cost a lot. But it is not a good choice to put aside this problem. Today, I am here to save you from this dilemma. You will get 6 solutions for this small issue.

#1. Clean the speaker, headset plug, and jack

Some of you may only find no sound on iPhone only when you are using a headset. In this case, you can clean the headset plug and jack. And you can change another headset to have a try. When you cannot hear sound only when you play sounds without the headset, maybe your iPhone sticks on headphone mode.

If you find that some objects clog the speaker, use a clean brush or other handy tools to remove them, and clean the speaker. Next, you can check the speaker and follow the next tip.

You need to check that if it is caused by a broken iPhone speaker. Follow this: Settings > Sounds & Haptics > Ringers and Alerts. Move the slider to the right. Cannot hear any sound?

#4. Check the Ring/Silent switch

The Ring/Silent switch is set on the left side of iPhone. And you can switch it to change the ring or silent mode of your iPhone. When your iPhone is in silent mode, it shows orange. The silent mode will stop any ringtones and alerts. But it does not influence other sounds. Sometimes, this feature may get some bugs and result in no sound on iPhone. You can adjust it by changing from the Ring/Silent mode and see whether it works.

#5. Turn off the Bluetooth

Check whether you have turned on the Bluetooth on iPhone. When you turn it on, the sound which should be output from speaker on your iPhone may be transferred to another device which is connected with yours at that time. And it makes your iPhone no sound as a result. How to disable this feature? Just head over to Settings, and then Bluetooth. Toggle the Bluetooth switch to turn it off.

#6. Turn off the Do Not Disturb

The Do Not Disturb feature empowers you to decide a period when you do not want to be disturbed. During it, you will not hear any notification sound or alerts from your iPhone. Maybe you turn it on unintentionally and then you find your iPhone sound not working. If it is on, a crescent moon icon will appear in the status bar. You can go to Settings and Do Not Disturb to turn it off.

You can also try to restore iPhone to fix iPhone no sound problem. But it is not necessary for youto use this method because it will make your iPhone lose all the data and settings. Compared with it, a third-party iOS repair tool such as TunesKit iOS System Recovery is much more efficient and will not cause any data on your iPhone.
