If it seems like your iPad's maximum volume isn't as loud as it should be, your ears might not be deceiving you. The device includes a volume limit locking feature that can prevent its speakers from blaring anything louder than the set limit. If you want to take full advantage of your iPad's audio, you should raise this volume limit to its highest level, ensuring the device does not hold itself back.

Step 1

Tap "Settings" on the iPad's Home screen.

Step 2

Tap "iPod" in the left-hand column to view new options in the main pane.

Step 3

Touch "Volume Limit."

Drag the volume limit meter all the way to the right to allow the iPad to reach its maximum volume. Tap "Home" to exit and save changes.


  • Increase the volume on your iPad by double-tapping the "Home" button, scrolling to the left to view the volume controls and dragging the volume level higher.
