FEELING unimpressed by your iPhone's loudness? There are some easy tricks to help you crank up the volume.
We've rounded up the quickest hacks to make your iPhone music loud enough to use as a basic speaker.
Turn off iPhone volume limiter
The first thing you need to do is turn off the volume limiter.
This is designed to stop you from hurting your ears by playing music too loud.
Of course, it's not essential – and will be excessive for many users, so feel free to turn it off.
Simply go into Settings > Music, and then scroll down to Volume Limit.
Toggle it off and you're sorted.
Adjust iPhone EQ
Your iPhone has an equaliser that balances out the sound of your music.
They're turned off by default, but they needn't (and shouldn't) be.
Go into Settings > Music > EQ and turn it on, then check out all of the new equaliser settings you can use.
What you want is the Late Night setting, which jacks up the volume of quieter sounds, making the overall music louder.
It's the easiest way to boost your music's loudness.
Put your iPhone in an empty bowl
This easy hack essentially creates an echo chamber, which will amplify the sound.
Make sure the bowl you put your iPhone in is empty and its speakers are pointing downwards.
If you can't find a bowl, try using a mug.
iPhone tricks to try today
Here are some of the best…
- Typing cursor – When typing, hold down the space bar to turn your keyboard into a trackpad, letting you move around words and sentences more easily
- Close all Safari tabs – To do this in one go, simply hold the overlapped squares in the bottom right-hand corner, and press close all tabs
- Delete lots of photos quickly – Hold down on a photo and then drag your finger diagonally in Photos to select lots of images at once, then hit delete
- Convert currency quickly – Swipe down from the top of your Home screen (or swipe left to right on an iPhone X or later model), then tap in the bar and type a currency (like $200) and it will automatically covert to your local currency
- Check if you're due a battery upgrade – Batteries inside smartphones degrade over time. Just go to Settings > Battery > Battery Health, and check out the Maximum Capacity reading. Generally a battery is considered worn when you're down to 80% capacity. If you're below, you can buy a battery swap from Apple
- Move apps around faster – Hold an app until it starts wiggling, then (while still holding) tap other apps, causing them to stack so you can move them around easier
Use your hands
If you're holding your iPhone and want it to sound louder, try cupping your hand around the speaker.
This should then direct the sound towards you.
Hold or place your iPhone next to a wall.
Make sure that it's at a 45-degree angle.
The sound will then reflect off the wall and appear louder.
Upside down iPhone
If you're trying to listen to music, turn your iPhone upside down so the sound is reflecting upwards.
This is because iPhone speakers are located at the bottom of the device.
Propping up the device and using certain cases can also muffle the sound from these speakers.
