How To Change Audio on Iphone

The iPhone is a great device for so many reasons. The only downside that some people find with it is the fact that you cannot change the audio output to speaker. This can be a real pain when you are listening to music or watching videos and want them louder, but don’t have access to external speakers or headphones. Luckily, there are ways around this problem! In this blog post we will discuss 10 easy steps that will help you change audio on your iphone in no time at all!

10 Easy Steps to Change Audio on iPhone

Step 1:

  • Press the volume button on your iphone.
  • Double-click it to make audio louder, and single click it for softer sound. This is a good way of making adjustments before you get started with our steps!
  • For many people this is all they need to do in order to change their iPhone’s output from one form of sound, such as speakers, to another such as headphones or earbuds. It saves them time and frustration when they just want something simple done quickly without any fuss over how great technology can be sometimes!
  • However, there are other ways that will work too if you still have problems after trying this method. Step Two below has some more detailed instructions about what else you should try.

Step 2:

  • Check your settings in the iPhone’s “Settings” app.
  • You can find this by going to Settings and then General, or you could also press the home button twice quickly if it had been a while since you last opened an App on your phone!
  • Tap Sounds & Haptics under Sound & Haptics just below and check that Mute is not enabled and that Audio Output is set to either Headphones or Speakers (This will depend on what type of audio output device has been plugged into the headphone jack). If these are already correct, read ahead to Step Three for more details about how to change sound output with additional commands from Siri. If they have not been set up properly, you should be able to fix the problem with Step Two.

Step 3:

  • Open Siri by pressing and holding down the home button for a few seconds or until it starts talking.
  • If you want to change audio output on your iPhone using voice commands then this is something that you will need to do so make sure that it’s enabled! You can find this in Settings under General > Accessibility > VoiceOver (or Assistive Touch) and check “VoiceOver” if not already selected.
  • Ask Siri how many headphones are connected to the device – they’ll all show up as separate numbers but one of them should say “Headphones”. This indicates which type of audio output device has been plugged into the headphone jack.
  • If you’re not getting an answer from Siri when you ask about how many headphones are plugged in, then it’s likely that this is a problem with your device and may need to be serviced by Apple which would make Steps One through Three unnecessary for you!

Step 4:

  • Open the App Switcher (the one just above the dock).
  • Tap “Control Center” and swipe left or right until VoiceOver comes up. Pressing this will bring up settings where you can change audio output from speakers to headphones.
  • Double-click again if necessary for louder sound like we did before at Step One of these steps!
  • If you are unable to swipe because your iphone is not working properly then try pressing the home button three times quickly which will bring up a list of Apps that can be opened.

Step 5:

  • Press “Settings” in this app and select Accessibility > VoiceOver (or Assistive Touch) from the options on screen.
  • Then, tap Audio Converter under Speech Commands and choose either Headphones or Speakers depending on what type of audio output device has been plugged into headphone jack. When it’s done converting, sound should come out of headphones when they’re unplugged as well!
  • Remember to speak slowly if you have any difficulties with Siri understanding what you want to do next! It may take a few tries before it works properly!

Step 6:

  • Press the home button three times quickly to return to your phone.
  • Now, plug in headphones or earbuds and press “Play” on their audio player of choice (Apple Music, Spotify) for sound to come out of them!
  • You can also use Siri with Voice Over enabled if you have problems finding these controls which will make things easier too – just say “Open Settings”.

Step 7:

  • When using EarPods as an example, wait until they’re plugged into both ears then open Control Center by swiping up from the bottom edge of screen and tapping that icon. T
  • hen tap Volume Down at least twice so it’s turned down low.
  • You can also use Siri with Voice Over enabled if you have problems finding these controls which will make things easier too – just say “Open Settings”.

Step 8:

  • Plug in your headphones or earbuds and press “Play” on their audio player of choice (Apple Music, Spotify) for sound to come out of them!

Step 9:

  • Press the home button three times quickly to return to your phone. Now plug in EarPods as an example into both ears then open Control Center by swiping up from bottom edge of screen and tapping that icon.
  • Then tap Volume Down at least twice so it’s turned down low. When done correctly, there should be no overlapping feedback between sound coming through the iPhone speaker and through the headphones.
  • If you’re unable to swipe because your phone is not working properly then try pressing the home button three times quickly which will open a list of Apps that can be opened.

Step 10:

  • Go back into Control Center in EarPods by swiping up from bottom edge of screen and tapping this icon again if necessary, tap “Volume Up” so it’s turned up all the way! This should bring sound coming out of both speakers as well as earbuds (if plugged).
  • If you’re unable to swipe because your iphone is not working properly then try pressing the home button three times quickly which will open a list of Apps that can be opened.

Conclusion:

There are many different types of audio output devices that can be plugged into the headphone jack on your iPhone and we hope these ten easy steps will help you to change how sound comes out!
