Volume controls are pretty straight-forward in iOS devices. The volume buttons control the ringer volume (when there’s no music/video playing) and the playback volume (when there is music/video playing). You can also change the volume from within Settings → Sounds.
But here’s a problem that people face: iPhone music volume is too low. Or in some cases, it’s so low that the music becomes inaudible. It’s mostly a problem involving altered defaults in the Music app’s settings.
How to Fix Volume Issues in The iPhone Music App
Removing the max-volume cap
- Open Settings
- Scroll down and tap on Music
- Check the label “Volume Limit” .. it should be OFF. If not, tap on it it.
- Swipe the slider to the right so that the volume is full. When you set the slider completely to the right, it means there’s no volume limit set.
- Go back (tap on the < arrow from top) and check if the label for Volume Limit is OFF.
Quit and re-open the music app to see if the volume problem is gone.
Setting up Sound Check
Sound Check is a useful feature. When enabled, your iPhone will automatically detect if a track naturally has low volume levels: if yes, it will dynamically adjust and compensate for the low volume. May be some of your tracks are naturally low-volume and that’s what is causing the low volume problem.
- Open Settings → Music
- Enable Sound Check
- Quit the music app. Reopen it and check if the volume problem’s fixed.
