iPhone 7 Plus Microphone Does Not Work
Problem: Microphone does not work. 6 months ago i took my iphone to apple to fix my microphone. After 1 week i collected my phone and a new microphone was changed from under warranty and not so long after receiving my iphone again my microphone doesn’t work yet again when no doubt my warranty is now expires and i’ll be charged full price to replace it. Not a happy customer in the slightest. Today is christmas day; i am in the military working in the Falkland Islands over christmas, i haven’t seen my family in 3 months and thought i would video chat during the opening of present for my 8 month old son and now cannot be done!
Solution: The best troubleshooting step that you can do right now is to check if this is caused by a software glitch. You should try to backup your phone data then do a factory reset. Once the reset is complete try to check if the microphone works. If it doesn’t then this is most likely a hardware related problem in which case you will need to bring the phone to a service center and have it checked.
In the meantime, you should try using the earpods that came with the phone since it has a built in microphone which you can use to place calls.
iPhone 7 Plus Keeps On Freezing
Problem: I have the iPhone 7, it has been freezing and acting up lately but what was incredibly strange is that last night I was chatting to someone on WhatsApp and then switched to Safari to an ICO webpage and then when I switched back to WhatsApp, the top left of my screen said “Tinder” in the app switcher function. I haven’t had tinder on my phone since the beginning of this year. Is it possible that my phone is being hacked or could this just be a glitch?
Solution: It’s likely that this is just a software glitch. I recommend that you update your phone software. If it is already running on the latest software update then you should consider doing a factory reset. Make sure to backup your phone data before doing the reset.
iPhone 7 Plus Continuous Bootloop
Problem: My phone was in a continuous bootloop. All it would do is come to the apple logo and then shut off and repeat the process, it would try to boot up all the time but when it couldn’t make it past the apple logo it would just restart the process. I tried to restore/update using iTunes and that didn’t work but now all it does is goes to the iTunes screen like its hooked up even when its not hooked up. Help?
Solution: If you are unable to restore the phone using iTunes then this is most likely a hardware related problem already. The best thing that you can do right now is to bring the phone to a service center and have it checked.
