Why is my iPhone Vibration and Audio not work and iOS freezes?
iPhone 6S 64 GB iOS 11.4.1
My iPhone 6S recently started having some issues such as the Vibration and Speaker not working properly. Another thing is whenever audio is attempting to be played, only “noise” comes out of the speaker very quietly. For example, if I lock the iPhone, there should be an Audio sound of the Lock button. However, there is only noise.
Another big issue is whenever I switch between Ringer/Silent, the iPhone hiccups/lags. I believe the iOS is attempting to switch between the two modes and thus slows down the iPhone.
Another example is playing YouTube. I would open the app, press on a video, then the phone proceeds to freeze. This doesn’t only apply to YouTube. Any application that may attempt to play some sort of audio will freeze/lag/hiccup my iPhone.
The ONLY solution I’ve found to work is to plug in some speakers/earphones into the Audio Jack and the phone unfreezes and audio is being outputted into the speaker/earphone.
I’ve done a iFixit battery swap recently and reinstalled the iOS multiple times. This appears to be a hardware issue.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
