Phone was stuck at apple logo. Was set aside, now it turns on but...
A week ago, my iPhone got stuck at the Apple Logo when I tried to restart the phone. Before that, I was experiencing issues during a call, but I can not verify these problems as I was in an area prone to bad cell service.
Anyways, I tried everything from updating the phone to restoring the phone, and nothing worked. At one point, iTunes was able to detect the phone, battery level, storage information, etc. just like a regular phone, despite the phone still being stuck at the apple logo.
I left the phone alone for a week now, and today I decided to charge the phone. It did not get stuck at the apple logo this time and turned on. From there, I began testing the phone. At first, I listened to my missed voicemails from the week. A few minutes in, the voicemail voice started cutting out. I think this was happening both on speaker and receiver. Next, I tried voice memo to see if the mic was working, and it didn't (The app was lagging too, maybe because the phone was attempting to connect to the mic??). I tried a test call, and my voice went through for a few seconds, and now it doesn't even work. Then I tried testing my camera, and the app was very slow. Switching between the camera and video modes was laggy, and videos and slow-motion camera modes don't work (the two modes that use the mic).
I then tried playing a video on youtube, and it works. Audio plays fine.
Sometimes speaker, receiver, and mic works, other times it doesn't. I think it is the mic that is the problem here. Everything is working fine through a Bluetooth speaker. However, I believe that a piece of hardware on my phone is almost about to give. It works sometimes, and I was lucky that I turned on my phone today, when it was working.
I need help narrowing down the issue. Is it just the mic, audio ic, or is it something bigger?
Esta é uma boa pergunta?
