Step 1: Check your iPhone’s ringer settings

The first step in troubleshooting your iPhone ringer is to check your device’s settings. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings on your iPhone.
  2. Tap on Sounds & Haptics.
  3. Ensure the Ringer and Alerts volume slider is turned up and not muted.
  4. Check the ringtone and vibration settings to ensure they are enabled.

If your ringer was turned off or set to a low volume, adjusting these settings should fix the problem. However, if your ringer settings were already set correctly, proceed to the next step.

Step 2: Check for Do Not Disturb mode

Another common reason your iPhone ringer might not work is if it’s in Do Not Disturb mode. This mode disables all notifications, including ringtones and alerts. To check if your device is in Do Not Disturb mode, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings on your iPhone.
  2. Tap on Do Not Disturb.
  3. Make sure that Do Not Disturb is turned off.

If your iPhone was in Do Not Disturb mode, turning it off should fix the problem. However, if your device wasn’t in Do Not Disturb mode, proceed to the next step.

Step 3: Restart your iPhone

If your ringer settings and Do Not Disturb mode are both turned off, the next step is to restart your iPhone. Restarting your device can fix many software-related issues, including problems with your ringer. To restart your iPhone, follow these steps:

  1. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears.
  2. Slide the red slider to power off your device.
  3. Wait a few seconds, then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button again until the Apple logo appears.

If your iPhone ringer still isn’t working after restarting your device, proceed to the next step.

Step 4: Check for software updates

If your iPhone is not running the latest version of iOS, this could be why your ringer isn’t working. Apple frequently releases updates to fix bugs and improve the performance of iOS devices. To check if your iPhone has any available software updates, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings on your iPhone.
  2. Tap on General.
  3. Tap on Software Update.
  4. If an update is available, tap Download and Install.

Once your device is running the latest version of iOS, check to see if your ringer is working correctly. If it’s not, proceed to the next step.

Step 5: Check for physical damage

If your iPhone ringer is still not working after following the previous steps, your device may be damaged. Check your iPhone for any signs of damage, such as a cracked screen or water damage. If you notice any physical damage, contact Apple Support for assistance.

Conclusion

We hope this guide has helped you fix your iPhone ringer when it’s not working. Following these steps, you should be able to troubleshoot and fix the problem independently. However, if your ringer is still not working after following these steps, it’s best to contact Apple Support for further assistance. Thank you for reading our guide; we hope you found it helpful.
