This seems to be a growing glitch on the iPhone that is causing no sounds problems.To eliminate this glitch go into settings then put air plane mode on for about 5 minutes. After that is done toggle air plane mode on and off for 1 minute. Then restart the iPhone by pressing the home and power button at the same time for 10 seconds.
iPhone No Sound step 5,
Another very successful method is squeezing the bottom right hand corner of the iPhone, yes this sounds very strange but turns out to be one of the best fixes for the iPhone. Squeeze this area between your two fingers for about 20 seconds at a time. By doing this you may reconnect the speaker connectors which may have disconnected. There is no need to worry about the left hand side as that is allocated for the mic unless your having mic issues.
iPhone No Sound step 6,
Use a toothbrush or a similar item with stiff plastic bristles, once you have found one clean the docking/ charging port of the iPhone. Be sure to get the bristles in thoroughly and use a bit of force when doing so. This will remove or dislodge any dirt/ grime/ dust/ sand etc from the port. When the charging port gets dirty in can block the connectors which can trick the iPhone into thinking its connected to a music dock and won’t be able to play sound or music.
iPhone No Sound step 7,
Similar to the above step with cleaning the charging dock, you can repeat the method but on the headphone jack port located either on the top or bottom of your iPhone depending on the model. By doing this you will dislodge and dirt or grime from the headphone port. Another successful extension of this step is by inserting your headphones in then removing them straightaway. Sometimes when headphones are inserted but not removed correctly the iPhone will still play sound through that audio source which isn’t present.
iPhone No Sound step 8,
This step was recommended by some of the commenters which has shown to be successful. By going into Settings > Bluetooth > Toggle on and off for 30 seconds. There have been reports when spawning between bluetooth audio sources such as music docks or car speakers there may be some glitches when reverting back to the iPhone speakers. By toggling the iPhone bluetooth switch this will eliminate any temporary glitches.
iPhone No Sound step 9,
If your iPhone has come into contact with any humidity, moisture or water they may be a correlation between that and no sound or volume coming through on your iPhone. To remove the moisture you can put your iPhone in a container of rice for 24 hours. Make sure that the iPhone is turned off and the sim card is removed before doing this.
iPhone No Sound step 10,
Similar to the above step by eliminating any moisture that may be trapped in the iPhone. You can get a hairdryer and then apply heat to the iPhone in the bottom right hand corner where the speakers is located. Have the hairdryer on the lowest heat setting and at a fair distance so the iPhone doesn’t overheat. Repeat this step several times.
