Why can’t some apps record audio on iPhone

I noticed that in some messengers it is not possible to record a voice message. The microphone does not work in these programs, although a standard camera or voice recorder can record sound.

Apps on the iPhone cannot access the microphone without the user’s permission. When the program is launched for the first time, several requests will be set to provide access to the necessary elements and features of the device.

In addition, starting with iOS 14 , the system signals that the application is working with a microphone or camera with a yellow and green indicator in the upper right corner of the screen.

If for some reason the program does not record sound through the built-in microphone, but the microphone itself works in other applications, you can try changing several settings.

What to do if the application does not record sound through the microphone

1. First, go to Settings and find the settings section of the desired application. They are collected at the very bottom of the main settings page.

2. Open the program settings section and find the Microphone switch . Turn it on or turn it off and on again if it has already been activated.

3. If the previous step did not help, open the Settings – Privacy – Microphone section and here turn on or off (if the option was already active) the switch for the problematic application.

Sometimes programs do not display an option in the section with their own settings, but the toggle switch in the general section will be present.

4. If the app is still unable to access the microphone after this, delete and redownload the app from the App Store.

5. In some cases, the problem can be solved by restarting the iPhone. Here is an instruction for rebooting all models of Apple smartphones.

6. The last step that can help in this case is to restore the firmware via iTunes or Finder on the computer. More details about this process are written in a separate instruction .
