  • Here are a few tips

  • for identifying why your iPhone is not ringing

  • and how to fix it.

  • If your phone is in do-not-disturb mode,

  • incoming calls won't ring

  • and they'll go straight to voicemail.

  • When enabled, there's a crescent-moon icon

  • in your status bar.

  • Here's how to disable do-not-disturb mode.

  • Swipe up from the bottom of your home screen.

  • If the do-not-disturb button,

  • which looks like a quarter moon, is highlighted,

  • tap it to disable the feature.

  • Your phone might think it is sending a ring to a device

  • that isn't actually connected to the phone.

  • A potential fix is to enable and disable airplane mode

  • by tapping the airplane icon in the control center.

  • To make sure you didn't accidentally block

  • an important number, open settings.

  • Tap "Phone."

  • Tap "Blocked Contacts."

  • In the list of blocked calls,

  • see if you've accidentally blocked any numbers.

  • To unblock it, swipe it to the left and tap "Unblock."

  • Make sure that your iPhone's ring silent switch

  • isn't in the silent position.

  • If it's down with the band of red visible,

  • it's set to silent

  • and might've accidentally been bumped into that position.

  • To test if your iPhone ringer is low,

  • open settings, then select "Sound & Haptics."

  • Adjust the volume under "RINGER AND ALERTS."

  • If the volume is all the way down,

  • turn it up and see if this fixes the issue.

  • If all else fails, consider restarting your iPhone.

  • This is a last-resort step

  • when your iPhone runs into software problems.

  • If none of the other troubleshooting tricks

  • solved your problem,

  • you probably have a hardware problem with your iPhone,

  • like a damaged speaker or a fried port.

  • You can go to Apple's support page

  • and set up a Genius Bar appointment

  • to have someone look at it in person.
