The phone noise cancellation feature available on iPhone 12 and earlier models (which reduces ambient noise during calls) is not yet available on iPhone 13 series, and users have been waiting for Apple’s fix for months.
Some days ago,On the main Reddit bulletin board“There was a post that said there is no” front microphone that can be used for noise cancellation “on the iPhone 13. The reason the poster thought so is that there is no” phone noise canceling toggle switch ” “on the older model in” Accessibility “→” Audio / Visual “of the settings application.
It is true that the iPhone 13 lacks this feature, but it does not mean that it has fewer microphones than the iPhone 12 and earlier versions. Other Reddit users pointed out exactly that this was not a hardware problem, another contributor in October.Discussions held in the official Apple forumAforementioned. From a series of exchanges, it appears that it was confirmed that “the iPhone 13 series does not have a switch for telephone noise cancellation” has been left unattended.
Also on the official forum above, another user wrote that Apple is aware of this issue.
That is, “The iPhone 13 has never had this option in iOS 15 due to a bug. I am talking to Apple Support about this matter. This is a known issue and at this time. There is no prospect of solution. This The bug It also causes a symptom of CarPlay echoing when talking between iPhone 13 “.
The post that started this was on October 29, about two months ago. IOS 15.2 was recently released, but this issue has not been resolved and it appears to still continue in the beta version of iOS 15.3. The American writer 9to5Mac has published a photo with the iPhone XS on the left and the iPhone 13 Pro on the right (title image), visualizing that the latest iPhone models do not have the functions available in the previous models three years ago.
Accessibility features make it easy for everyone to access information and services.Apple is focusing in that direction.It seems strange that I have not been able to solve the problem for a long time, but I would like to wait for future support.
