I've been using my new iPad mini for a while, but I'm only recently noticing a potential fault on it. I wonder how you guys make of it.


It's about the built-in speakers. Even when the volume isn't turned all the way up, the sounds coming from the speakers start to "crack" (or, in more technical terms, "clip"). I turned to Garageband and used the panning feature and found out one side "cracks" much easier (as in "cracks" start in lower volume) than the other one. The non-"cracking" side often don't "crack" at all even when the volume is turned all the way up. Do you think it's normal for all iPad mini's small speakers? Or should I be asking for a repair/exchange?

iPad, iOS 6.0.2

    Try to reset your device.


    Device Reset (won't affect settings/data/music/apps/etc)


    1. Press and hold (& continue to hold) BOTH the Sleep/Wake button & the Home button.


    2. Continue to hold BOTH (ignoring any other messages that may show) until you see the Apple logo on the screen.


    3. Release BOTH buttons when you see the Apple logo and allow the device to boot normally.


    Aditionally, try to to reset your settings (make note of what they currently are to easily re-enter them after the reset):

    Settings>General>Reset All Settings (this will NOT affect music, data, apps or otherwise)
