The iPhone 4S may be selling like hot cakes. But the device has not been without its issues. Many folks have been complaining about battery issues on their new iPhones for quite some time. Apple did release multiple patches to address that problem. Now some iPhone 4S owners are experiencing random muting during phone calls. This problem happens when you are in the middle of a phone call. For some strange reason, the audio on the caller’s end fails randomly.
Some users have been complaining about this issue since the launch of the iPhone 4S. Since the problem happens randomly, not everyone has experienced this, which could explain why Apple has not come up with a solution for this yet. A lively discussion has been going on in Apple’s discussion forums on this very issue.
We don’t know how Apple can fix this issue. The latest iOS update clearly does not do it. So far, it is not clear what may be causing this problem. Apple could potentially fix this issue if it is a software one. If your phone is experiencing call muting consistently, you are going to have to reset and restore your phone. Some iPhone owners have had success getting around this by using Siri. This problem can be irritating to say the least. The good news is Apple will most likely address it as more people start complaining.
