Step 3

With the introduction of the new iPhone7, Apple have made a bold move and scrapped the traditional headphone jack. In doing this you now charge and listen to music thru the one lightening port. This can cause some sound and volume issues on the iPhone if this port is to get dirty or a build up of grime. To fix this you can clean the port with a toothbrush in a gentle manner. The reason for cleaning the port is that some times the dirt can block the connectors which can trick the iPhone that its connected to a speaker.

Another iPhone7 sound fix is to check that the bluetooth isn’t connected to another device. Because of this audio will try and play thru another audio source instead of the iPhone. Simply go into settings and and turn of bluetooth and insure that it isn’t connected to another device or speakers.

This step is usually overlooked but can be a super simple fix. If you look on the side of the iPhone7 you can see a toggle button that controls the mute/ sounds functions of the iPhone. If the toggle button shows a orange colour it is on mute mode. Simply flick toggle back to enable sound on iPhone 7
