    My iPhone XR is using the iPhone mic instead of the lightning connector EarPods mic these are the lighting connector EarPods that came with the iPhone when I got it from sprint and they work fine I can hear from both left and right it just isn’t using the EarPods mic is there a way to make my iPhone use the EarPods mic instead of the iPhone XR mic

    I have two guesses - either the EarPods are bad (which you could verify by trying another pair, or trying this pair on a friend's phone), or you may have lint in the lightning port on the iPhone itself that is preventing proper connection with the EarPods. You can try using a non-metal blunt object (like a wooden toothpick) to try to gently dislodge any lint or dirt in the lightning port and see if that helps.

    I’ve tried both of these using a brand new pair of EarPods still didn’t work and cleaning out the lightning port with both a toothpick and some compressed air it’s completely clean

    Thank you for the reply tho
