Speaker button greyed out

Is there anyone annoyed with Apple right now??? My speaker button on my IPhone 7 is greyed out and i’m unable to use my phone to talk. Which is the main reason why I use my phone. I took it to Apple and they told me basically but a new phone or leave…LOL Funny right?? Well let’s start a petition today. They are basically bullying us to buy a new phone and that’s not right. If I do buy another phone it would’’t be another IPhone.

So it just cost me 450$ to get 2 new iphone 7’s from Apple because this happened to both my kids phones, the rep there did give me a useful tidbit incase it happens again with my kids new phones- phones will still work with blue tooth ear phones BUT only blue tooth so you can buy a cheap pair amd the phone will be good to go again

Yes but why after we paid good money for these phones do we have to wear a blue tooth device to make it happen.. Apple should just put out the fix for free .. after all it is their stuff up. I will never buy another iphone ever.

True just happened too me we should file a class action lawsuit

This happened to me too

This is a KNOWN issue, and they used to fix them out of warranty. They should stand behind their products.

I agree that it’s annoying but you should know that this is repairable…even if Apple pretends that it’s not.

The iPhone 7 series of devices have proven to be very unreliable, suffering from flex-based issues similar to the iPhone 6 Plus (Touch Disease). On the iPhone 7, the fault line runs along the top of the SIM card reader and affects the Baseband CPU and Audio IC. Any short copper traces running perpendicular to the fault line while connecting to micro-BGA pads, is subject to failing.

Here are the typical symptoms, as collated by the repair community:

  1. Voice Memos app / Loudspeaker on call - greyed out
  2. Siri doesn’t hear you / Caller can’t hear you
  3. Most other Audio related issues that aren’t solved by modular replacements
  4. Long boot times (3-5 minutes)
  5. iTunes detects the phone but stuck on the Apple Logo

This is a repairable problem but it requires a micro-soldering repair. Although it can be a routine repair for an experienced tech, it can go sideways very quickly as the Audio IC is directly opposite the underfilled Baseband CPU.  An unqualified tech can apply too much heat and cause massive problems.

First, calm down. I know you’re outraged but petitions and such won’t do anything. Deep breath. Calm now? Okay. Let’s answer your question.

The problem you’re experiencing is fairly common with iPhone 7 (and 7 Plus) phones. It is most common with phones that have been dropped a lot but I’ve seen it on phones with just normal use. The technical cause for this is essentially a weak solder connection from the audio chip to the motherboard. The good news is, yes, this can be fixed. The fix involves removing the motherboard from your phone and either replacing that chip or reballing it (resoldering it) if the chip itself is undamaged.

This is not a DIY repair; you need specialized microsoldering equipment and expertise. Expect to spend around $150-$200 for this repair. If you can’t find a suitable shop in your area send me a private message and I’ll give you the name and contact information of a company that I work with who does this sort of work via mail-in service.
