A lot of people have been asking me this question and it’s not an easy one to answer. So I’m going to try my best in a few sentences. The first thing you need to do is make sure your phone is running the latest software update (no, they don’t come with that on there). Next, check your settings and see if the audio output mode is set correctly for when you’re using headphones. Lastly, go into “settings” and then “headphones.” Make sure all the levels are set properly so that sound comes out of both speakers and headphones at the same time. If none of these work, we’ll just have to wait until Apple releases their next update!
This is an issue that plagues many of us. You plug your headphones into the jack on your phone, and they don’t work! What could be wrong? There are a few common reasons why this might happen. One reason is because you may have plugged them in upside down. If you were to look at the headphone jack on your device, it will either say “input” or “output.” Make sure to plug the headphones in with one side going into input and one side going into output – if not, then not only won’t they play any sound but also won’t charge! Another potential problem is that some phones do not allow for two devices (i.e., phone and earphones) to both use bluetooth simultaneously;
I know what you’re thinking. “Why does this guy care about how his phone reads headphones?” Well, before we get into that question, let me give you some background info on my experience with the product in question. I’m a musician and an audio engineer so I’ve spent years working with headphones of all shapes and sizes. What makes them different is the connector they use to connect to your device – either through a 3.5mm jack or a USB-C port.
I’ve had my iPhone 7 for about a month now and I’m really enjoying the new features. One thing that I don’t like is that when I plug in my headphones, it doesn’t read them. The sound still comes out of the speakers on the phone, but not through the jack where you plug in your headphones. Any tips?
