If you ever need to listen to music through the speakers on your iOS device you may have felt that the experience lacks a little depth, by which I mean, volume. Here’s what to do:

How to make music sound louder

This is so easy it’s a wonder no one seems to be aware of it.

Ever since Apple launched iTunes it has hidden an EQ tool inside the application.

I’m not certain, but I think it was even there before iTunes became iTunes and was instead known as Soundjam from Casady and Greene (more on that here).

And that’s how to make music playback a little louder on your iPhone.

Hope this helps 🙂

Watching Apple since 1999. I don't say what they should do. I say what they might do. They sometimes do.
