iPhone 5s speaker not working? Let’s take care of it
How do you fix an iPhone 5s speaker not working? This is a question that has plagued the minds of many who have had to deal with the problem of a broken cellphone. While there are many reasons that a speaker might appear to be broken, there are a few easier ways to fix them. Since so many of these particular fixes are dedicated to fixing the software, let's examine the way that the software on an iPhone 5s can be tweaked before we delve into the problem of navigating the hardware on an iPhone 5s.
If you don't hear sound through your iPhone speaker, you should make sure that your volume is on. This is a simple fix, but sometimes people forget that their volume has been turned down. Being sure that the volume in the phone is on is a great way to cover your bases. If that doesn't fix the problem, restart the phone, as per Apple's official instructions. This should let you deal with any issues that might arise from a bug where one application running in the background monopolizes your audio channels. Once this has been completed, you should be good to go.
Digging in to the hardware
If none of the solutions that involved fixing the software in your iPhone worked, you may have a broken piece of hardware on your hands. In order to fix a blown iPhone 5s speaker, you'll need to deal with the fact that there are only two ways you can go. You can attempt to fix your iPhone yourself, or you can hand it over to professionals. The DIY method involves utilizing a suction cup, security screwdrivers and a iSpudger tool in order to open up the iPod, disconnect some wires, remove the speaker, and replace it with an exact matching part you have purchased online or through an electronic store. This can be difficult, and isn't recommended for those without a lot of electronics experience. More details can be found at iMore.
