Another way to make iPhone speaker louder is putting it on an empty bowl. This cool hack basically creates an echo chamber, which will amplify the sound. Be sure the bowl you put your iPhone in is empty and its speakers are facing downwards. If you don’t have a bowl, try using a mug.

Use your hands

Wall method

  1. Try holding or putting your iPhone next to a wall.
