iPhone speaker stops working.. and comes back to life

I use an iPhone XS and some days ago the bottom speaker stopped working. First it creaked a little, then it stopped completely. Weirdly enough, it worked perfectly fine once I rebooted my phone. However, the same issues occurred again after using it for some time. Any ideas? Feels like a hardware issue but why does it work for some time after rebooting?

I am just guessing: hardware-related, the issue starts to show up when the device heats up. This could be contact issues.

Seems plausible, thank you! Iā€™m going to get my battery replaced anyway, so they can check this issue in one go.
