How to Fix Volume Issues in The iPhone Music App

Trick 1: Removing the Max-Volume Cap

The iOS operating system is a very powerful mobile operating system that has numerous features baked into it, many of which people aren’t even aware of. One such feature is to limit the volume so as to protect your ears during long music listening sessions. By default it is off, but sometime this feature may get enabled, causing the volume to decrease.

To check if this is the reason why your iPhone volume low, and then solve it easily, follow the below steps:

Now, just quit the music app and reopen it. Your problem should have been solved and the volume of the music would now be at normal levels like before on your iPhone.

Trick 2: Setting Up Sound Check

Another feature, that Apple has built in to its iOS operating system, is Sound Check. Many times, it happens that the song we are listening to, naturally has a low volume. This can happen during the encoding of that song file. If this is the case, then Sound Check feature comes in really handy.

When it is enabled, your iPhone will automatically detect if a song naturally has low volume levels. If it does, then iOS will automatically adjust the volume of the song. Follow the below steps to make sure this feature is turned on to handle the volume of such songs automatically.

Trick 3: Disable In-App Sound in Facebook on Your iPhone

Mostly the low volume issue can be due to the Facebook app installed on your iPhone. Since the Facebook app automatically starts playing its videos inside the app, many time users would choose to mute the audio of these videos in case it sings at an improper time. This can cause an effect on the volume levels on the iPhone as well.

To solve this, follow the below steps:

  1. Launch the Facebook app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap on More option in the bottom menu and then scroll down to the bottom where you will find the Settings option. Tap it to open the settings menu.
  3. A menu will swipe up presenting you with three options: Account Settings, News Feed Preferences and Activity Log. Tap on Account Settings.
