iPhone 6S Plus Isn’t Recording Any Sound

Problem: I am currently using iOS 10.1.1 . I model is iPhone 6s Plus ( 64 Gb) . Recently I have encountered a problem , my voice recorder isn’t recording any sound . At times there is a glitch in the camera application as well , when I am trying to open it , a black screen appears . Also sometimes while recording a video using the camera application , recording via back camera is perfectly fine , however while recording a video on front camera , for some 3-4 seconds no sound or some unclear sound appears , then it goes to normal . I am facing severe sound issues while using various applications as well , such as Snapchat ,whatsapp , Shazam . I only tried these . The video recorder on Snapchat isn’t recording any sound ,some unclear sound appears for videos on playback . Shazam is not able to pick voice , same is the case while trying to send voice messages on whatsapp . Siri is working perfectly fine . Added I am not facing any problem with calls . It is very frustrating when you have bought such an expensive phone which is not even 10 months old and having such issues . It’s been more than a month now with this problem . What should I do.

Solution: This is indeed quite strange since the sound issue seems to be selective ( affects only certain apps). Listed below are some of the troubleshooting steps that you should do for this type of issue.

  • Clean the audio port and charging port of your phone using a can of compressed air. Make sure that any dirt or debris gets removed from these ports.
  • If the Bluetooth service is turned on then try switching it off first.
  • Try restarting your phone.
  • Backup your phone then do a factory reset. Setup your phone as a new device.

If the above steps don’t fix the problem then you should bring the phone to a service center and have it checked.
