Part 2. 6 Other Basic Ways to Fix This Problem

Here are some basic and common ways that may solve this issue. Please note that the success rate is relatively low while compared with the best way in Part 1.

2.1. Check iPhone Case

Whenever the question "why callers can't hear me on iPhone X" or 'iPhone x people can't hear me' hovers over your mind, the first and foremost thing you should do is examining the iPhone case. Sometimes, the iPhone case can block the microphone or even iPhone receiver. Just remove the case and try to call someone to test it. Make sure to check this before anything else.

2.3. Check If iPhone Is in Headphone Mode

If the above tip didn't work, another thing you should check is if the device is in headphone mode or not. Firstly, remove (if any) debris or any kind of gunk from the audio jacks i.e. microphones or receiver. Secondly, try plugging in and then plug out the headphone you use quickly.

This is important as many times the iPhone is not able to recognize that the headphones are being disconnected or your microphone just not working during calls. So, plugging in and out several times will let the device detect the process. If you use an adapter, plugin and plug out the adapter.

2.4. Check Receiver

When your voice cannot be heard clearly on your calls, the next thing you should try is receiver inspection. To check the receiver, follow the steps below.

  • Go to the Voice Memos app and open it. Record audio for a short duration.
  • After recording, tap on the speaker icon to play the recorded clip on speaker.
  • Now, tap on play button and listen to the clip through the receiver of the device.

If the sound is perfectly normal without any crackle kind of noise, the receiver is perfectly fine then. You should move to the other fix since there must be some issue with the carrier network or something else.

2.5. Turn off Bluetooth

If the receiver is good and you still cannot be heard clearly on your calls, check connections and disconnect your iPhone Bluetooth. Just open "Settings" > "Bluetooth" > toggle off the switch next to "Bluetooth" and disable it.
