How to Boost the Volume for the iPhone
If you have an iPhone and are frustrated with the top volume level on it, there is still a way that you can boost the volume on the iPhone to make it a little louder. As of February 2010, there is an app, Volume Boost, that claims to boost the iPhone volume. However, a majority of user reviews on AppleiPhoneSchool claim that it does not. But a small modification you can make to your iPhone does boost the volume a bit.
Things You'll Need
- Needle or pin
Take the case off your iPhone if you have one on it. Flip your iPhone up so that you are viewing the bottom of the iPhone.
Locate the speaker holes on the bottom of the iPhone. The speaker holes are located below the "Home" button on the bottom left of the iPhone.
Use the needle, or pin, to gently poke into the speaker holes. Poke just until you feel the needle penetrate the film over the speaker.
Test your iPhone volume by playing a ringtone to see the difference from before you poked the holes.
Tips & Warnings
- It is normal for dust or other residue to come out of the speaker holes when you poke them with the needle.
