    I left my iPhone X to an Apple authorised service point to take advantage of the battery replacement program.

    They said it will take 2-3 days because they had to order the battery and speaker.
    I asked what was wrong with the speaker and how much that is going to cost?
    They replied that the speaker does not cost extra and it has to be changed together with the battery.

    I find weird that the speaker needs to change with the battery. Is this the case with the iPhone X?

    They have to replace the speaker because it has a gasket to prevent moisture from getting into the device.
    The speaker is stuck to the housing.

    I sent my 7 in for battery replacement under apple care plus which was about to run out in a few days. When I got it back the report showed they changed the battery, speaker/microphone and the main logic board in my case. All costs were covered under the warranty. So maybe the speaker does have something to do with the water resistance.
