Gaming with voice is creating echo with iOS 15.4 which affects untold numbers of users who are hearing the echo coming from these broken iPad models on popular gaming platforms. The established work-around is to stick something in the headphone jack or buy a new iPad, but those with brand new iPads and other devices are the ones that are actually hearing the echo, and they cannot do anything about it. This bug is causing a ripple effect for everyone using WebRTC on the Internet.

When will it be fixed?

We have sent the following email to thousands of customers that have written in about "echo issues" over the last month or so:

We have identified an issue with the latest iOS 15.4 and 15.5 update that is causing an echo and feedback noises to come from the microphone of the following older iPad models:

• iPad 6th Generation (2018)
• iPad 7th Generation (2019)
• iPad Pro 10.5-inch (2017)

This issue is not specific to our game. Apple is aware of the issue and we are waiting for them to fix it in a future operating system update. In the meantime, if an echo arises in your game, please ask all players on iPad with a headphone jack to plug in a pair of headphones, then unplug the pair of headphones. You do not need to use the headphones during play; you simply need to plug them and unplug them to clear out the echo. If your iPad does not have a headphone jack, it is a newer model and is not causing the echo.
