How can I fix a "sucked" mic?


iMore Question

My little brother was crawling around my room, and he found my iPad. He sucked the mic on the top near the off/on button, and a week after I noticed I couldn't use the mic/it wouldn't record my voice. Is there anyway to fix it without opening it, taking it to the Apple Store, etc...?

Welcome to iMore!

I think your best bet will be to take it into an Apple Store to have it looked at. Sorry to hear this happened to you!
