There must be an on-screen notification about the headphone when plugged in or connected. In case you don’t see it and you can’t get the sound in the speaker as well,

You have to check a few things to understand the problem and sort it out:

  • Ensure that you have disabled the mute feature of your phone. Doing this unknowingly can create a real fuss for you and you end up wasting so much of time finding solutions here and there. Therefore, disable the silent feature and toggle it to ring.
  • When we work or are busy in some other things, to get rid of the notifications and calls, we switch to ‘do not disturb’. This makes everything silent and forgetting about disabling the same can cause the problem with no sound in the speaker.
  • You can press the volume up key to address this problem. Otherwise, you can also drag the ringer slider up and down for a couple of times to see if that makes any difference or not.
  • You may try to adjust the volume accessing the control centre.
  • Ensure that AirPlay is not sending audio to another source.

You can make a voice call to check the speaker’s functionality. Now go back to the settings and change it to automatic setting again.
