Check the Volume and Silent Mode

The first thing you should do is to check the volume and silent mode settings on your iPhone 15 Pro. Sometimes, the volume might be too low or the silent mode might be accidentally turned on, which can affect the sound quality of the ear speaker. To check the volume and silent mode, follow these steps:

  • Go to Settings > Sounds (or Settings > Sounds & Haptics), and drag the Ringer and Alerts slider back and forth a few times.
  • If you don’t hear any sound, or if your speaker button on the Ringer and Alerts slider is dimmed, your speaker might need service.
  • If you hear sound, try making a call with your iPhone and turn on speakerphone. On iPad or iPod touch, make a FaceTime call.
  • If you still can’t hear, or hear static or crackling, then your network or reception could be the issue. Try to call again later, or from a different location.
  • If your device has a Ring/Silent switch, move the switch forward — toward the device’s display — so that orange isn’t showing.
  • If you’re using an iPhone with an Action button or an iPad, you can also swipe down from the top-right corner to open Control Center and make sure that Silent mode is off.

Clean the Speaker Grill

Another possible cause of the iPhone 15 Pro ear speaker problem is that the speaker grill might be blocked or dirty. This can prevent the sound from coming out clearly and cause distortion or muffling. To clean the speaker grill, follow these steps:

  • Remove all screen protectors, films, or cases from your device.
  • Check the speaker opening to see if it’s blocked or dirty.
  • On iPhone only, make sure that the receiver isn’t blocked or dirty.
  • If necessary, clean the speaker or receiver opening with a small, soft-bristled brush.
  • Make sure that the brush is clean and dry.

Enable Hearing Aid Compatibility

To get rid of the iPhone 15 Pro ear speaker problem, you can also try enabling the Hearing Aid Compatibility on your phone. This feature can improve the sound quality and clarity of the ear speaker for some users. To enable Hearing Aid Compatibility, follow these steps:

  • Open your phone’s settings.
  • Scroll down to “Accessibility” and look for the “Hearing Devices” options.
  • Activate the “Hearing Aid Compatibility” from here and see if it solves your issue.

Update iOS

Sometimes, the iPhone 15 Pro ear speaker problem might be caused by a software bug or glitch. In that case, updating your iOS to the latest version might fix the issue. Apple often releases software updates that contain bug fixes and performance improvements for various issues. To update your iOS, follow these steps:

  • Connect your device to a power source and a Wi-Fi network.
  • Go to Settings > General > Software Update.
  • Tap Download and Install.
  • Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the update.

Reset All Settings

If none of the above solutions work, you can try resetting all settings on your iPhone 15 Pro. This will erase all your customized settings and preferences, but it will not delete any of your data or apps. Resetting all settings can sometimes resolve the iPhone 15 Pro ear speaker problem by restoring the default settings. To reset all settings, follow these steps:

  • Go to Settings > General > Reset.
  • Tap Reset All Settings.
  • Enter your passcode if prompted.
  • Tap Reset All Settings again to confirm.

Contact Apple Support

If all else fails, you might have a hardware issue with your iPhone 15 Pro ear speaker. In that case, you should contact Apple Support to discuss service options. You can either call, chat, or visit an Apple Store or an authorized service provider. To contact Apple Support, follow these steps:

  • Go to [Apple Support] website.
  • Choose iPhone > Audio & Sound > The topic is not listed.
  • Enter a brief description of your issue, such as “iPhone 15 Pro ear speaker not working”.
  • Choose how you want to get help, such as Talk to Apple Support Now, Chat, or Schedule a Call.
  • Follow the instructions to connect with an Apple expert.
