How to make your iPhone speaker louder

This setting has been around for a while, but it’s subtle enough to have slipped through the cracks for many.

Take a look at this tweet.

To see this setting at work, fire up some relatively loud music on your iPhone.

Now go to Settings, scroll down to Music, make sure EQ is set to off. Get a sense of the volume.

Now scroll down and select the Late Night EQ setting. Notice a difference? To me, the difference is significant, the quiet elements boosted, the overall impression louder.

If you don’t hear a difference, tap to turn EQ off, then go back to Late Night. It’s subtle, but a good tip, worth sharing.



  • Huge difference. Surprising actually. Thanks for the tip!

  • I’m assuming this EQ setting also carries over when you have headphones in?

    I notice a significant difference in the ambiance. I also use Boom for iOS. I’ll have to experiment and see how readjusting iOS’s EQ affects it.

  • I can “hear” the difference….. but my decibel meter does not agree. No noticeable difference in the readings.
