I recently found that I couldn’t plug in my headphones into my iPhone properly. I pushed hard but found that it didn’t click in – and so the iPhone sporadically thought it was connected, but also not connected.
I thought “Crap! My iPhone headphone jack is stuffed!” But after some Googling I found that a common problem is just that the headphone jack gets accumulated with crap.
And so a few weeks ago I performed surgery on my iPhone. I searched around the house for the thinnest inflexible object I could find – which ended up being a really thin screwdriver. And then proceeded to carefully scrape out fluff.
And fluff there was!! Basically nearly 2 years of pocket lint blocking a good connection for my headphones.
Having iPhone headphone jack problems too? Maybe it’s just lint 🙂
