How to make an iPhone speakers louder

  • But if you find your iPhone isn’t loud enough to suit your needs, here are a few ways you can try to make your iPhone speakers sound louder.
  • Quick tip: You should first make sure your volume isn’t set too low in the first place. Press the Volume up button until it reaches the max. If that’s not loud enough, try the other steps in this guide.
