Troubleshooting iPhone 8 that Does Not Ring When Called

It is indeed a big trouble if your iPhone does not ring when getting phone calls. If you did not set your iPhone 8 to Mute, then there might be other factors that halted your iPhone 8 to produce sound when called.

These are the ISSUES that we are going to fix in this post:

  • iPhone 8 not playing any notification sounds.
  • iPhone 8 not ringing when receiving calls.
  • iPhone 8 ringer not working.
  • Notification sounds muted.
  • iPhone 8 vibrates but makes no sound on alerts. iPhone does not ring.

Here are the possible SOLUTIONS:

  • On the iPhone 8, located on the top left corner, there is a “silent” switch. Toggle it and make sure it is OFF.
  • If problem persists, you want to make sure the “Do Not Disturb” feature isn’t active. To turn it off, go to Settings > Do Not Disturb. Make sure “Manual” and “Scheduled” are off.
  • Go to Settings > Sounds and make sure the “ringer and alerts” volume is not muted.
  • Go to Settings > Notifications and make sure your alerts are turned ON for any apps you wish to make sound.
  • Insert your headphones into the headphone jack to check whether there is sound or not. Insert and remove them a few times. Sometimes the iPhone may get stuck in headphone mode and this might help.
  • If none of these options worked, you can try performing a backup and restore of your iPhone
