Why cant I hear my games without my headphones

Why can't I hear my games without my headphones

Sorry to hear that you are having issues with your ipad...:(

What I understand is, without the headphones, you are not able to hear the sound while gaming, correct?

How about hearing music? are you able to hear without the headphones?

Also, how long have you been facing this issue?

Thank You

For the last 4days
Thank you, Darrell.

Since you are able to hear the songs, I believe you might have accidentally turned on the mute.

There is a mute switch to the right side of your ipad (just above the volume buttons). Just toggle it 2-3 times and place it in a position so that it is not on mute.

Let me know whether this resolves your issue.

If not, let's go to settings > General. There is an option called "use side switch for". What is it currently selected to?
