So every time I get a phone call my iPhone 5 starts playing whatever audio app was last playing.  For example - my iPhone is currently sitting on my desk in my office, not making a sound.  I called it from my desk phone, didn't answer, hung up my desk phone, and my iPhone starts playing a random podcast (it's not even the one I was listening to last).  It doesn't happen every single time, but it's pretty frequent, and annoying.  Anyone know what might be causing this and how to fix it?

    YES! My phone just did this tonight.  Never had that happen before.  Do you use an aux cable with your car by any chance?

    I'm experiencing that same thing after making or receiving calls almost everytime.

    I've noticed this problem as well on my iPhone 5.

    For example, I'll unplug my iPhone's headphone cable to my car, pausing the audio that was playing.

    Some time later, I'll get a phone call. When I hang up the call, the audio resumes where it left off. It's as if iOS thinks the audio was paused by the incoming call.

    Give Apple feedback on the issue and Call them.


    The latest month people has been frustrated with the lack of information from Apple. Users are getting more and more frustrated with there IOS 6 device not working to the standard of the IOS 5.1.1


    Apple has appoligised about the lacking IOS, and more and more info is coming out to the public about just how badly the newest software has been tested.

    I guess I should say lack of testing. It must have been rushed out the door, so they could match another phone on the marked.


    Yet it is impossible to get any info from Apple, and all we can do is using the "black hole"



    or we can call

    U.S. iPod, Mac and iPad technical support:

    (800) APL-CARE (800-275-2273)

    U.S. iPhone technical support:

    (800) MY-IPHONE (800-694-7466)


    And you should do so if you have not yet done so.


    But why do we not hear anything from Apple ?

    How can we feel appriciated by Apple, when they do not want to have a dialog with there consumers ?


    Even the technical support people are getting frustrated as they get no information on what is going on eather.


    Is it wrong of me to demand some information from a company who in a way downgraded my product with the faulty IOS 6 ?

    Should I stay silent and just wait for Apple to see and realize that it was uterly wrong to rush this out to us ?



    ( I know I will now get attacked by Highlevel users on the forum. They will clame that it'a all working fine, even when apples ceo Tim cook came out applogising for ios 6 not working, and/or Apple will fix it and is doing everything they can to fix all the problems with ios6. How they know this I have no idea, as they all claim that they are not working for apple and that Apple is not looking in these discussions)

    That kind of post is probably why Apple doesn't watch these forums closely.

    Your point about notifying Apple is good.

    Your expectation that Apple should respond personally to everyone is silly.

  • justjesper Level 1 (30 points)

    No i do not expect apple to responce to my post, not at all.

    But look around inhere and you will se so many bugs and frustrated people.


    I do expect Apple to lift it self back to a standard we have been used to, but not doing anything, like coresponding to the massive amount of feedback they are getting ( that is if the is not a "black hole" ) and let us know what is being done and when we can expect out product to be working again.


    That I do expect, Yes !

    I'm having the same issue.  This morning when my alarm was going off, everytime I would snooze the alarm, pandora would start playing.  This is a problem that needs fixed right away.  I would like to save the embarisment of my music starting after ignoring a call in class. Please Apple, fix this.

    Add me to the list of folks who has on several occassions had a silent iphone 5, then a phone call, then phone call ends,  and then the iphone unexpectedly starts playing music or a podcast (both have happened) even though I was not listening to anything before the phone call.

  • March3777 Level 1 (0 points)

    Mine now plays Pandora after a phone call and if I snooze my alarm also. Even if I have the ringer volume turned off.

  • zakm52 Level 1 (0 points)

    Does everyone having this problem also use their iphone in the car with an aux cable plugged into the headphone port?  I think that could be related.

  • Klahane Level 1 (0 points)

    Re: the aux cable, yes, it's after using my iPhone 5 that way that I notice the problem. I haven't tested properly to see if a podcast resumes in other circumstances.

  • March3777 Level 1 (0 points)

    Mine is doing it without the cables. I'm tempted to just back up the phone in iTunes and just restore it to factory settings.

    Anyone notice whether the 6.0.1 update helped? I haven't noticed the problem in a few days, and just applied 6.0.1.

  • Br1gsy Level 1 (0 points)

    I have same issue. Whatever I was listening to be it tune in app or podcast etc it plays through speakers after ending a call. Has been embarrassing on a number of occasions.
