Here’s how to make an iPhone louder by tweaking settings.
Knowing how to make an iPhone louder is useful when you’re listening to music, watching a video or speaking to someone. Although the device’s speaker is pretty loud when you turn the volume up to the max, sometimes environmental noise can get in the way or you simply want to gain a little extra depth.
One of the best ways of ensuring you get the best sound from your iPhone is to connect it to one of the best Bluetooth speakers. There are lots of different types to suit all budgets. But what if you don’t have a Bluetooth speaker to hand? Are there ways to boost the volume from the iPhone’s own speaker?
The answer to that is yes and here we look at how to make an iPhone louder by altering some settings and exploring how best to position your device.
If you can’t hear any sound, check the Silent switch on the side of the iPhone. Move it so that the orange color does not show. It might also help to locate the speaker at the bottom of the iPhone and ensure it is free of dust and dirt.
With that out of the way, there are several steps you can take to make an iPhone louder, so read on as we show you how.
How to make an iPhone louder: Alter the EQ settings on your iPhone
The iPhone has a limited equalizer (EQ) that affects sound playing in the Music app. It is turned off by default but one of the options — Late Night — will make your music sound noticeably louder.
This is achieved by normalizing the sound coming from the Music app so that quieter parts of a song are given a volume boost. Although the louder parts are also quietened ever so slightly, the overall effect is stark, especially when you have the volume cranked up to the max.
Here’s how to change the EQ settings to make your iPhone speaker louder. The trick also works if you’re listening through headphones, but be aware that altering this setting won’t impact audio that isn’t played via Music.
1. First, open the Settings app on your iPhone. Scroll down and tap Music.
2. Under Headphone Audio, tap Headphone Safety.
3. Now turn off Reduce Loud Sounds.
