Has this ever happened to anyone out there? any insights? thanks Options Log in or register to post comments Comments what type what type distorting issue do you experience? Maybe it has been exposed to… Maybe it has been exposed to liquid of some sort My iPhone XS Max has acted like that, and got notification that a liquid has been detected in the lightening port, I gave it an hour or so and the speaker is back to normal. oh, ok oh, ok, I hav same issue, but on the earpees site. my swet my swet some how getting to my earpees. the distortion cleared up after an hour or so the sound came back. I suppose it could have been due to moisture. I am real puzzled as to how that happened. thanks folks for the comments. My Experiences with Speaker Distortion When I received my brand new iPhone XS, I had no problems with speaker distortion. But within a couple of weeks, the speaker began to buzz. This occurred whether VO was speaking, music or books were playing, or a phone call was in progress. Contacted Apple, sent the device in for repair, they replaced it instead. Same problem when I took it out of the box. I sent the second device in again. Same thing. They replaced it and when I got it, the phone started buzzing within a couple of days. Very frustrated. I am using the third iPhone XS but still deal with the buzz. Phone calls no longer buzz but I still have the interpherence elsewhere. I have no idea what the problem is, but since two replacements didn't fix it, I just live with it now. In my opinion, I shouldn't have to pay over $1,000 for an iPhone and have this problem. Prior to my experiences with the speaker buzz, I have had no problems with any iPhone dating back to iPhone 4, my first device.
