iPhone Headphone Jack Repair - iPhone Models
For those iPhones models that have one ;) - the iPhone Headphone Jack is integrated into the component that is known as the iPhone charging port assembly which is the component that typically needs to be replaced when the headphone jack has a problem.
When replacing parts does not provide a solution or resuscitate your device, the only explanation is a failure of the Main Board or the Logic Board.
When a device suffers damage, the obvious problem(s) appear to be a component, for example a screen or a charging port. These component failures are readily and immediately experienced by the user to be the proximate problem. Replacing the damaged or non-functional component would seem to be the obvious solution. Thus, a user comes to The TechKnow Space to have this problem remediated/repaired. Typically the doctor (our seasoned technicians) have no problem doing this.
Sometimes however, replacing/repairing components turns out to be an exercise in futility. Further diagnostics establishes the problem to be resident in the Main Logic Board. The replacement of these logic boards is prohibitive and best left alone. It’s time to move forward to a new device.
Bear in mind that these mainboard failures are a result of the initial damage to the device that prompted a visit to the repair shop even though it is not intuitively obvious.

iPhone 7, 7 Plus Headphone Jack
The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have been manufactured without a headphone jack.
You'll get a pair of Lightning EarPods in the box of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. These are much the same as the EarPods you've had in the box with previous iPhones, but they're designed for use with the Lightning port rather than a traditional 3.5mm jack.
That means if you're reliant on headphones you won't be able to listen to music on your phone and charge it at the same time. Each phone will also ship with a Lightning to 3.5mm adaptor, so you can continue using your wired headphones with the handset.
Apple is also releasing wireless headphones for you to buy alongside the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, called AirPods. The AirPods are much like Apple's EarPods, but they're wireless and connect via Bluetooth.

IPHONE 6, 6 Plus HEADPHONE JACK REPLACEMENT
The headphone jack on any phone is a very small but important part of the phone’s function. The headphone jack is where you plug in a microphone headset or ear/headphones. The headphone jack is located on the bottom of the phone, next to the charging port.
Having a working headphone jack on your iPhone allows you to:
- plug in a microphone headset or headphones
- listen to music, watch movies,
- use FaceTime,
- make and receive phone calls quietly and hands-free. S
Spare yourself the frustration of using your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6+ with a broken or damaged headphone jack and come to the TechKnow Space.
Within one hour, you can be in and out of our store with a repaired or replaced headphone jack in your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus.
The most common problems we see people have with the headphone jack on their iPhone 6 or iPhone 6+ are:
- muffled, fuzzy or unclear sound is coming out of plugged-in headphones
- sound is only coming from one ear of the headphones
- the headphones are not sitting correctly in the jack – the connection between the headphones and the headphone jack is wiggly or not holding the headphones plug properly
- your headphones will not plug into the jack at all – usually because something is stuck inside the jack
A few consumer reviews have revealed the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6+ to have a slightly modified headphone jack input which causes some headphones, especially third-party headphones not sold by Apple, to create static, stop headphones from working fully, or even remotely activate Siri.
Many issues with the headphone jack can be fixed with a little DIY, but why risk breaking your phone?
Your phone is often the most important item in your pocket at any given moment. Don’t try to live with the frustration of a non-functional phone. Bring your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6+ to the TechKnow Space and let us do the hard work for you.
