    at least 2 of the speakers in my 9.7 ipad pro are either 100% out or only have a very slight muffled sound coming out of them; any ideas?

    I have never dropped it and to my knowledge never gotten it wet.

    I would contact Apple and set up a service call.

    My 10.5 have the best speakers of any iPad that I have owned. If yours does not sound right, take it to the Apple store and have them take a look at it.

    Mine are loud enough to hear from the next room. What have you got your volume set too?

    Might want to consider changing your notification sound for messages as they are not all recorded at the same volume.

    You guys don’t understand: I’ve tried factory reset, updated software, the sound only comes out loudly from the top right speaker. The bottom right speaker has a muffled sound, but staticky, the other 2 speakers don’t work at all.

    I’ve tried resetting all sound settings. Have a Genius Bar appt tomorrow at 35242 apple store.

    Sounds like a hardware defect, OP. Go ahead and make that Genius Bar appointment and don’t tarry on those because those appointments fill up fast.

    What royally sucks is, I got this iPad in August 2016, so it's about 2 months past manufacture warranty coverage.

    When I put in AirPods, the Ipad functions completely fine. It's just the awful sound quality of the 2 speakers that work, and the 2 completely dead. I've never submerged it, I had to swap out a previous model for this one back in January due to a stress hairline crack that wasn't my fault.

    Worst case scenario, it's a hardware issue, several hundred to fix, and I just pull the trigger on a new 10.5 or I just learn to live with AirPods only. I wonder, though, if it was some sort of water damage (maybe my ex did something to it, wouldn't shock me), then that would eventually effect the motherboard would it not? I'd just replace it anyway.

    It's weird because I bought the iPad 1 when it came out, and the iPad 2, and I never used it as much as I use my current one. It isn't even really any new features, I think I'm just getting old, and more blind, and can see the iPad screen easier.
