Why is My iPhone Not Ringing?

why is my iphone not ringing

If your iPhone is not ringing, or the ring tone seems distorted or low, you may need to perform a factory reset. By doing so, all the settings on your phone will be restored to the defaults, including the voicemail and notifications. Resetting will also enable you to add or delete new features. Before you do so, make a backup of your data on your computer. Also, install the latest version of iTunes and turn off Find My iPhone in Settings. Next, plug in your iPhone using a USB cable. iTunes will open automatically.

Restoring your iPhone is another way to fix the issue. To do this, download iTunes and connect your iPhone to the computer. Once the computer detects your iPhone, go to the Device tab and select Summary. Tap Restore iPhone to begin the process. Wait for the process to finish. Once the process is complete, your iPhone should start ringing. Then, try to take calls. If the problem persists, you may want to try restoring your phone.

Other reasons your iPhone may not ring include minor settings that affect the ring tone. You may want to check the Do Not Disturb setting or call forwarding. Alternatively, you may want to check the status of your custom ringtones. In both cases, the mute button should be turned off. If all these steps are not effective, you may need to reboot your device or restore your iPhone.
