Lately, even after getting a new iPhone, VoiceOver will suddenly, and abruptly, adopt the same kind of output heard when you are in a phone call. I could be reading an email, and then, all of a sudden, VoiceOver sounds as if I am on an active phone call, non speakerphone. I am not on an active phone call.
When I play some peace of audio again, or any media, then VoiceOver behaves normally, and stops sounding as if we're on an active phone call.
audio output suddenly switches from the iPhone's main speaker to its ear speaker for no reason at all, it seems. I am not connected to any device in particular but I do have a few, 2, bluetooth speakers in my list.
I tried disconnecting from the bluetooth speakers, but audio output switches from the iPhone's main speaker to its ear speaker still.
I've tried disabling Bluetooth and never had this problem again. I'd like to keep Bluetooth enabled because I often play media through my echo, 4th gen, device, without using Alexa or the Alexa app.
In my limited testing, I am sure of a few things.
There is no pattern I can detect.
If another Bluetooth device is connected, audio just stops, as if the iPhone isn't sure where to play the audio.
I haven't tried removing any bluetooth speakers yet, but I've got, connected via Bluetooth,
A Zag limitless keyboard.
JBL Clip 3 shower speaker.
Amazon Echo, fourth gen.
Does anyone have any ideas as to why audio output suddenly switches from the iPhone's main speaker to its ear speaker
