3 Simple Steps to Fix iPhone 5s Speaker Distortion
After having an iPhone 5s for less then a month, the speaker started to sound very distorted, almost like there was a loose wire or something. After doing a lot of digging through Apple support documentation, I discovered that it was not a hardware issue, but a software issue. There is also a workaround that you can do yourself, eliminating the need to go through the hassle of trying to get a warranty replacement handset. Just follow these 3 simple steps.
1. Turn off Wifi
Go to Settings / Wifi and turn it off.
2. Turn off Cellular Data
Go to Settings / Cellular and turn it off.
3. Restart the iPhone
- Hold down the power key and home key until you see the apple logo.
Hopefully this issue will be resolved in the next release of iOS. This fix may also work on other versions of iPhones.
