iPhone XR audio going in and out?

I got my iPhone XR around 7 months ago. I haven’t had any type of damage to it and all of a sudden a few weeks ago, I started having audio issues with phone calls, “hey siri” and recording videos. For phone calls, the volume is low and almost inaudible if i’m in a public place (talking, cars, birds etc.) If i’m not in a quiet room or have my earphones in, it’s very hard to hear who i’m on the phone with. For videos, if I record videos the sound goes in and out/up and down. I also have to have earphones in for the sound to work properly while recording. The sound works perfectly fine on everything else (youtube, instagram, voice memos, playing music, etc)whether I have earphones in or not. it’s just my phone calls and recording videos. One thing I have also noticed is that saying “hey siri” no longer activates her, i tried turning it off and back on to reprogram my voice, but it keep saying it couldn’t understand me.

Answer this question I have this problem too

The microphone is the problem here. There are two microphones on the iPhone XR: One is built into the display assembly, and the other is part of the Lightning (charging connector) port assembly.


Generally, if a microphone is going to go out it’ll be the one on the bottom near the Lightning port, which is good because it’s a less expensive part to replace, even if it’s more of a pain to do.


Occasionally though, as weird as it is, it’s not a defective part so much as Airdrop receiving being turned on causes the microphones to malfunction, so I would try turning that off and restarting the phone first.
