iPhone Pocket Lint

The volume controls on my headphones have recently stopped working when plugged into my iPhone. I had also noticed that the headphones were becoming unplugged far too easily.

I thought that something might be stuck in the headphone jack so I cleaned it out with a toothpick and a sewing needle.

Turns out, there was a lot of pocket lint in there.

Lint removed from iPhone headphone jack with key and Swiss Army Knife for scale.
