iPhone MouthpieceOne of the most common problems that people encounter when using the iPhone is when the microphone stops working during phone calls. When this happens, the person you are speaking to isn’t able to hear you while using the handset, but in some cases may still be able to hear while on speakerphone. It’s a frustrating problem that can make it difficult to use the phone on a regular basis.

What Causes The iPhone Microphone to Stop Working

  • Water exposure. Has the phone recently been dropped into water? Has the phone gotten wet in any way? Sometimes, even exposure to high levels of moisture can cause the mouthpiece to malfunction.
  • Mechanical malfunctions can sometimes cause the mouthpiece on the phone to stop working.

How to Fix an iPhone Microphone Malfunction

  1. Allow the phone to dry. If the phone has been exposed to moisture which has caused the microphone to malfunction, you can allow the phone to dry. Turning the phone off and placing it in a porous environment, like on a bed of rice, can help to dry the phone effectively and hopefully get the microphone back to normal.
  2. Replace the microphone. There are two options for customers who would like to replace the microphone. The first option is to have the microphone replaced by a professional, or do it yourself with parts that can be purchased online.

Repair costs

The costs can vary depending on the model of the phone, the damage and whether the mouthpiece can be repaired or needs to be replaced completely. Mechanical problems with the phone that have not been caused by the user are usually fixed under the warranty of the phone with no cost to the customer.

Keep in mind that phones less than one year old are usually covered under the warranty, but there are exceptions. In addition, the warranty program on phones that have been tampered with or repaired outside Apple are often void under and the phones are ineligible to be repaired for free when the mouthpiece breaks.

The next best alternative is to ship your iPhone to our stores and we will fix it for you and send it back to you. iFixYouri has experts equipped with skills required to fix your iPhone’s microphone when it stops working.
