Sound and speaker not working with YouTube on iPhone or iPad how to fix
With YouTube being one of the most used apps and websites on the iPhone and iPad, it can be very frustrating when your sound/ speaker/ headphones decide not to work. Below you will find some steps that may help you resolve this sound and speaker issue.
Step 1 – Check Silent Mode Isn’t On
This one is very simple but I think everyone makes this mistake at some point when owning a iPhone or iPad. Look to the exterior of the iPhone/ iPad and you will find a toggle button which goes back and forth.
Simply switch it off silent mode and insure that the volume is turned up on the iPhone and within the YouTube video as well.
Step 2 – Delete & Reinstall YouTube App
Another step is by deleting the YouTube app then reinstalling, this may eliminate any temporary glitch that may have occurred. Also before you reinstall the app check for both updates in the App store for the YouTube app and also in your setting to see if there is a new iOS update.
Step 3 – Restart iPhone/ iPad
Also a step you can do is restarting the iPhone/ iPad by holding the home and lock button together for 10 seconds which will result in a restart that my eliminate any glitch that could be on the device. When you restart this will not lose any data, contacts, apps etc.
Step 4 – Try Web Browser
Instead of using the YouTube app you could alternatively use the web browser option using safari, Google chrome etc.
Step 5 – Turn BlueTooth On & Off
Another really helpful tip t resolve the no sound on YouTube is to toggle bluetooth on and off. This is easily done by going into settings > bluetooth > off/on. You can also slide to the control panel and repeat the step.
Step 6 – Fix Speaker On iPhone/ iPad
This one sounds a bit strange, but trust me it works! You simply want to squeeze the bottom left and right hand corners of your iPhone. This is done as this is where the speakers are located and they can sometimes actually disconnect!
