    i had my 6s plus pretty much since launch day, but since yesterday it's been bugging the **** out of me.

    I've tried unplugging and reinserting loads of times, blowing into it, resetting network settings (Apple forums mentioned that one) but nothing seems to be be working. The stupid phone thinks headphones are still plugged in!

    Any advice would be great before I lug it off to the most unfriendly Apple Store I've had the displeasure of having to use...

    Can you try with another pair of earphones? maybe there is a defect on your headphones that causes it..

    Can you see any debris in there? If so, gently try to work it out with a toothpick.

    I'm using apple headphones but I can try another pair

    No debris what so ever. It's literally empty in there

    As long as you are not jb then reset all settings

    Put your mouth over the head phone jack and inhale. Mine does this every so often, or use to. Now I have a plug in the port I got off Amazon

    Had the same issue with my 6s plus and what fixed it for me was connecting it to a Bluetooth speaker land then switching back to iPhone mode.

    I took it to the Apple store. We did that, and I reset the entire phone, the problem persisted.

    Was it a 6s plus?

    I never considered trying that, but eventually I took it to the store and Apple replaced the phone, so all is good again.
