A Little Thing I Would Love For Apple To Fix

If I make a call and then either hold the phone away from me or set it down thus clearly indicating that I wish to activate the speakerphone, why must the damn thing revert to the earpiece when the person on the other end picks up? Is there a practical reason why iPhones do this? If not, can we please fix it? It’s a small thing, but it’s been years and it annoys me.

  1. Yes. Thank you for feeling my pain. This drives me absolutely bat shit insane. And then sometimes if you don’t hold the phone exactly so, it likes to flip between speaker and earpiece without warning, and then you’ve got the earpiece up to your ear while it’s blasting in the speaker, it’s just a pain.

    1. Oh god yes!  I hate that too!

      And then there’s that thing where you have it to your ear, you hear a notification go off and then a minute later when your phone locks it activates the speaker right into your brain and the only way to stop it is to hit your home button to unlock the thing again because it’s stuck on speaker no matter what else you try. Often times I find that this is when the randomly flipping back and forth starts.
