Use iPhone Volume Tricks To Always Listen At Comfortable Levels

If you enjoy having the ability to hear, listening to your iPhone at a reasonable volume is important. Here are two quick tips to help you keep that volume under control in any situation.

For a demonstration of these tips, watch the video above.

Set a Volume Limit

If your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch’s max volume is too loud, you can set a cap to prevent it from blowing out your eardrums. Just open up your Settings app and tap the Music tab. Then tap “Volume Limit” and reduce the limit to where you want it. You can even set a passcode.

Set Volume Memories with Different Headphones

This is far more useful if you share your iDevice with others, but one little-known feature is that the volume levels for various headsets are stored in memory. If you plug in one set of headphones and set the volume, that level will be remembered for the next time you plug them in. The same goes for other headsets, so you don’t have to worry about someone else messing with your volume settings. Just make sure they have a different set of earbuds and you’ll be good to go. This is also helpful for auxiliary inputs in your car, which you often want at full volume.
