Way back in 2014, Apple has added a new feature under Hearing. While it makes hearing noise-free as well as more audible than before, it doesn’t work at its best through the earpiece. Means, you have no other alternative but to turn it off if you wish to use earpiece while making/answering calls.
Supposing you are not able to hear properly while calling through earpiece even though you have set the volume high, how will you get it right? Interestingly, it is very simple as you can fix this with just a few steps. Let’s find out how you can do this!
How to Fix Low Headphone Volume on iPhone or iPad
In iOS 13 or Later
Step #1. Tap on Settings → Tap on Accessibility.
Step #2. Tap on Audio/Visual under section Hearing.
Step #3. Turn Off the Switch next to Phone Noise Cancellation.
On iOS 12 or Earlier
Step #1. Launch Settings → Tap on General.
Step #2. Tap on Accessibility.
Step #3. Scroll down and toggle off Phone Noise Cancellation under Hearing.
Check out if the volume is set rightly. If it isn’t, you can adjust it as per need by sliding right for more volume and left for low sound.
That’s it! Hopefully, now you can easily hear through earpiece without any difficulty at all.
When you turn on iPhone Noise Cancellation, you are able to hear properly without the earpiece. Having canceled the unnecessary noise, it makes it ultra-simple for you to hear the sound while calling. So, make sure to turn it on when you have removed earpiece.
Sometimes, this inconvenience may be caused by so many other factors which you need to figure out. Such as the poor quality of earphones, network problem. Even your device can be the culprit due to some technical glitches. So, make sure you have thoroughly checked out all these things before finding any conclusion.
Apart from this, Apple hasn’t added anything new under Hearing. Going by its prestigious record with every new release, we might see some improvement in this settings too. If it happens, it will make iOS even better.
