How to set a volume limit on iOS for Apple Music

  1. Open up the Settings app. Head down to Music > Volume Limit.
  2. With the slider, set a volume limit. Now, when your try to raise the volume, iOS will limit how loud the audio can get.

These sorts of options are fantastic for parents, but also those who know they have a tendency to crank the volume to high levels. As a general rule of thumb, music should not be raised beyond 70% in most cases unless you don’t have ANC headphones in louder environments.

In fact, in several countries around the world, the volume limit is on by default and cannot be disabled without changing the default region on iOS. However, some headphones, such as AirPods have a relatively low volume ceiling due to the lack of noise isolation. With those, users tend to raise the volume much higher to be able to hear the audio.
