iPhone 5S dying on me...

Recommended Posts

kiddingguy    96

I have an iPhone 5S and the speaker ig going south I think (incoming calls are hard to hear, listening to voicemail on speaker mode is barely understandable ) and the charging takes ages.

 

Is my 5S slowly dying on me...?

It's a 2013 phone, so it can be assumed... (although the actual usage is about 2-2,5 years on and off)

I'd be extremely surprised if it wasn't.

Have you dropped it, got it wet or done any other sort of possible damage to it? Seems strange for that part just to die, in 2-2.5 years.

No. It just said waiting (and 'collecting dust') in a drawer in the box.

My regular phone is an XS, and this one is now used for my business.

It may be a simple thing like gunk built up around the speaker grill, I had it on a previous phone (I think it was the HTC 8X) cleaning with a dry toothbrush and blowing cleared it enough so that the volume was acceptable again, but this is just a guess.

I got it cleaned a couple of weeks ago by an Apple APR.

I'll use some BluTec or alike to clean the speakers from (new) possible dust.
