Imagine that your iPhone can’t ring normally and you miss a lot of important phone calls; it’s a quite frustrating thing. But don’t worry, you are not the only that face the iPhone not ringing problem. You will see missed calls on the screen even though the phone is right next to you. Even if you are sure the ringer is on, the phone is not muted and you didn’t hear any sound. In order to help you fix the problem, the post will show you 7 effective methods.

Method 1. Check and Turn off Do Not Disturb Option

When you find that your iPhone doesn’t ring, the first method you can try is to check and switch off Do Not Disturb option. Sometimes you accidentally switch on Do Not Disturb option, which silences notifications, alerts, and calls. Your iPhone will not ring, but it still allows the phone calls to come in and as you won’t hear the sound, you will see missed calls. In some cases, the user accidentally turns this feature on without even realizing. You can check at a glance to the top-left side of your iPhone screen. If you see the moon icon, it means the Do Not Disturb mode is activated. To disable it, follow the steps below:

1. Swipe up from the bottom of the device to bring up Command Center.

2. Tap the Moon icon to turn it off.

    Method 2. Check Ringing Volume and Volume Up

    If the Do Not Disturb option is not enabled, now you need to check if the ringing volume is not muted or the Silent Switch button is not engaged.

    2. Physically check if the Silent switch button is activated.

    3. Try to increase the volume of your iPhone to the highest level and then call your number using the other device.

      If you use headphones to receive phone calls, plug in and remove it again. In some cases, the software that controls the headphone jack can be confused. Check the jack to see if it has dust or debris in it, You can use a soft brush to clean it out, making sure not to push dust into the socket. Plug the headphones into the jack and take them out again a couple of times. This may force the iPhone out of the mode and restore sound to speakers if this was the problem.

        Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

        Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

        Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

        Does technology have all the answers?

        This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

        Creating technological solutions transparently

        This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

        Technology as the connecting tool

        Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

        “Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
