I updated to ios7 yesterday and everything was working fine, no problems for approx 24 hours.
Today while watching video on the Netflix app, the audio stopped working.
Now, this is what I have:
-Ringer does not work when i receive calls
-Notification sounds do not work
-there is no audio with youtube, netflix or video files
-no audio with itunes music
-sound toggle (up and down) do nothing.
-the silent/vibrate toggle above the audio toggles causes phone to vibrate but does not effect this audio problem
In Settings; Sounds:
-when I use the volume slider for 'ringer and alerts' it plays the tone,
-when I select a different ringtone, it plays the tone,
-when I select a different text tone (tweet,mail etc/all others), it vibrates but DOES NOT play the tone
-audio works for phone calls on both regular and speakerphone settings
-audio for all apps works when earbuds/headphones are plugged in, through headphones
Troubleshooting attemts so far:
-vibrate toggle attempted, not the issue
-multiple soft and hard resets, no fix
-cleaned charging port, no fix
-cleaned earphone jack, no fix,
This appears to be a software update or app/setting compatibility issue. I've read other threads that suggest turning off 'airplay'... i cannot find airplay anywhere in the settings or on my iphone. I am not excited about going through the hassle of restoring my phone, losing music and saved app data.
I find it difficult to impossible to revert back to ios6.x.x and cannot restore my last backup from that version of ios.
My frustration abounds and makes competitor Android devices seem enticing.
Please Apple, help me
