Solution :

The heating of phenyl methyl ether with HI produces phenol.

$\require{mhchem}\ce{C6H5-O-CH3 +HI->[\ \Delta\ ]C6H5-OH +CH3-I}$

A molecule of HI is added to ether. I atom is added to CH​​​​​3 group and H atom is attached to O atom. Here, Ph-bond is not broken as nucleophilic aromatic substitution requires drastic conditions.
