How to fix iPhone 11 sound problems

Before going any further, remove the case or cover of your device. Not all the cases and covers are made from great materials and some of them might even cover some crucial parts of your phone even though they suppose to stay uncovered. So, if you are using a cover or a case for your iPhone 11, remove it and see if the sound works better.

Solution 1: Turn off Bluetooth

Navigate to Settings > Bluetooth, and toggle the switch next to this feature to turn it off.

Solution 2: Reboot your phone

Perhaps your phone needs a memory cache refreshment. If that’s the case, a restart is all you need. Press and hold volume buttons and the side button until you see the slider on the screen. Once it shows up, drag it to turn the phone off. Press and hold the side button to turn your iPhone back on.

Solution 3: Software update

You need to make sure that you have the latest iOS version. To do so navigate to Settings > General > Software update. If there is a new version of iOS available, tap Download and install.

Solution 4: Reinsert your SIM card

Sometimes, a SIM card that is not properly positioned can cause all kinds of troubles. Use the SIM ejector tool and take the SIM card out. Put it back in. Hopefully, this will solve the issue.

Solution 5: Third-party app

If the problem occurred right after you installed a third-party app, it could be the app that is causing the issue. So, you should uninstall it to see what happens. Go to your home screen, find the app, tap and hold its icon. The app will start to jiggle and you’ll notice an X. Tap on it to remove the app.

Solution 6: Dust and dirt

Dust and dirt that pile up in the holes of the phone can cause sound-related issues. Use a pin or a needle, and gently remove and debris, dust or dirt.

Solution 7: Reset all settings

You can restore all the settings to factory defaults. Here is how to do that:

  • Go to Settings > General
  • Tap Reset
  • Tap Reset all settings
  • Now enter your passcode
  • Tap Reset all settings to confirm the action.

Solution 8: Erase all content and settings

If none of the solutions listed above didn’t solve the issue, perhaps it is the time for factory reset. This is the most complicated solution of all because it’ll wipe everything you have on your phone. It will restore the settings to factory defaults and it will delete all of your data. That is why you need to back up your files first. When you are done, proceed with the steps below:

  • Go to Settings > General
  • Tap Reset
  • Tap Erase all content and settings
  • Enter your passcode
  • Tap Erase iPhone to confirm.

When the phone finished the process, you’ll have to set it up as a new device. Just follow the on-screen guide and you’ll be done in no time. If after the factory reset you still experience sound issues, visit one of Apple stores nearby.
