Solution 3: Check that your iPhone is not in Headphone Mode

It may be another reason behind the iPhone speaker not working after the iOS 15 update.

Follow the steps to get rid of it.

Step 1: Press the volume up key and if the iPhone is in Headphone mode then “Headphone” will be displayed on a pop-up.

For that, you need to turn off Bluetooth and AirPlay Mirroring. Often we have a habit of enabling features whether they are in use or not. Just like that Bluetooth and AirPlay Mirroring are used to play music or for video streaming.

  • Step 1: Swipe the bottom of the iPhone’s screen.
  • Step 2: Turn off both, the Bluetooth and the AirPlay Mirroring.
