Not only that, but you can also edit the volume of your morning alarm.

This is especially useful if you’re regularly woken by a headache-inducing din.

Or maybe you’ve found that your alarm simply isn’t loud enough.

Whatever the reason, it’s very simple to change your iPhone volume – and it’s not using buttons on the side of the phone.

Those volume buttons are to adjust the volume of whatever you’re doing at the time.

This would typically be media playback, or the volume of a phone call.

But you’ll need to dive into settings to adjust your ringtone and alert volumes.

Of course, you can change it in the settings app too, so that it’s possible to adjust ringtone and alert volume using buttons.

Thankfully you can readjust this at any time, so if you’re not happy then just head back into settings.

Go into Settings > Sound & Haptics and then look for the section named Ringtone and Alert Volume.

From there you can change the volume.

Note that even if you reduce the bar to its lowest point, your alarm will still sound in the morning.

But it’ll be as quiet as your iPhone allows.

It’s worth listening to the catalogue of noising – you might find you’ve been missing out on a great tune for years.
