Most often we want our iPhone to be able to play music as loud as possible. To achieve this we increase the playback Volume to the maximum and even link our iOS device to portable Bluetooth speakers, in order to satisfy our ears. However, there are some cases when we would like to limit the music playback volume on our Apple smartphone, especially when it comes to children.
Whenever we borrow our iPhone to our kids and they use the AirPods or any other headset to listen to music, it’s recommended that we limit the Volume levels, to prevent your loved ones from listening to music at too high levels. When used frequently, loud music via headphones can affect the hearing capacity in a negative way. Kids can’t always judge when music is too loud so it’s better not to give them that option!
5 Steps To Limit Music Volume On iPhone
Thankfully Apple’s iOS coders have taken this option into account and there is a hidden setting that allows you to lower the maximum music output volume. Here is how to do it:
1. Open the Settings app from the Home Screen.
2. Scroll for Music.
3. Tap on Volume Limit.
4. Drag the knob towards the left, towards the desired position in the Volume scale. The more you drag the more you’ll limit the maximum music volume on your iPhone.
Fact: The drawback of this tip is that the Volume is only limited for audio played via the Apple Music app. In-call volume as well as YouTube playback aren’t limited!
