Over the last few months, there has been a rather strange and infuriating bug that is going on with iPhones. However, this bug isn’t being talked about enough. When you receive a call and you want to switch over to the speaker during a call, then you will need to simply tap on the speaker button via the direct flow feature. However, this flow seems to be currently broken and users are facing issues. In this guide, you will get to know how to directly switch to speaker-in-call without the Speaker Option on iPhone.
iPhone users facing speaker-in-call issues
When you’re switching over to the speaker phone during a call, you will have to take the direct flow route. However, this flow seems to be currently broken. If you tap on the speaker button, it’ll bring out the Speaker Options menu from where you’ll need to select Speakers. This flow shouldn’t only be opened when you’ve got an additional Bluetooth speaker or earbuds connected as at this point, you’ll have the option of switching between other audio sources.
Since currently you don’t have any other audio sources, the device automatically should be switching over to the speaker upon tapping on this option. Unfortunately, this is no longer the case. But there is a workaround that you’ll get to know about below.
How to directly switch to speaker in call without the Speaker Option on iPhone
- Go to Settings -> Accessibility -> Touch
- Head over to Call Audio Routing -> Set to -> Speakers
- This will fix the underlying speaker issue
That’s it, the issue will be resolved. These steps will allow you to switch to the speaker in the middle of the call without having to bring up the Speaker Option on your iPhone. Remember that if you’ve set it to Bluetooth and there are multiple Bluetooth devices connected, you will have to manually choose the specific device.
