[iPhone 7 Plus] Microphone doesn’t work during calls only.
The mic on my iPhone 7 Plus sucks and has sucked since I bought the phone. I don’t make phone calls often so I never realized it and when I did it wasn’t enough to establish it as a theme rather than a fluke. I need to hold the iPhone in a very specific way just for people to understand what I say on the phone. Every other application gets a clear recording through the bottom mics but for whatever reason during phone calls my voice is muffled to the point where I can’t be heard. Is there a way to set mic priority? Just spitballing but could the phone be defaulting to the upper mic or backside mic on calls for some reason?
Anyone experience the same and have a way to fix it or am I boned?
I’ve had this iPhone 7 Plus for 2 years, I believe, and I’m well aware I probably should have reported this sooner to Apple and I might be SOL which I’m OK with, to be honest, but I thought I’d ask anyways. I don’t make phone calls often, probably only a couple times a month, so I can live without it if I am.
Thanks in advanced.
