In case you are not able to hear properly while making a call through earpiece even when the volume is set at the maximum level, what will you do? The fact is that there is a simple way that you can try to fix this issue. Read on this post to find out how to do this!

Steps to Fix Low Earphone Volume on iPhone/iPad

If you have already updated your iPhone/iPad to the iOS 13/iPadOS 13 version, then you can try these following steps to fix the issue.

Step 1: Open the Settings app and tap on the Accessibility section


Step 2: Select Audio/Visual that is under the Hearing section

Step 3: Toggle the switch next to Phone Noise Cancellation to off


That’s it! You have already turned off  Phone Noise Cancellation on your iPhone/iPad.

On iOS 12 or older versions

If your iPhone/iPad is running on iOS 12 or earlier iOS versions, here is how you can disable Phone Noise Cancellation on your iOS device.

Step 1: Open the Settings app and tap on General option

Step 2: Select Accessibility

Step 3: Scroll down and then toggle the switch next Phone Noise Cancellation off which is under Hearing.

So, you should re-enable Phone Noise Cancellation feature whenever you remove your earpiece.
