Question iPhone randomly stops playing media


Oct 15, 2018
A few months ago I started having a problem with my iPhone SE (2) where media such as videos and music would randomly stop playing and no other playable media would work until the phone had been completely shut down. This happened in every app capable of playing media at the same time. After some testing I realized it was not a network issue as trying various networks and LTE did not change the outcome as well as downloaded content to the phones drive not playing either. The issue did not start immediately following an iOS update and my phone was updated to the latest version. I recently get a new iPhone 14 and the issue has shown up on that device as well. I have tried everything I can think of, any advice on what else I could try?
