I pad volume keeps suddenly going quiet

Specs: iPad
My iPad keeps suddenly goes quiet every 2/3 weeks.. Only thing I've worked out to do is to reset( without erasing data) had it for 3/ 4 years now and it's had heavy use. Maybe it's time for a new one.

As it "comes and goes" it's unlikely to be a software fault or anything that button pressing can fix. Most likely there is a bad joint inside or some component that is faulty. Unless you know someone who is game to poke around inside then maybe you are stuck with renewal.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I would hazard a guess and say you have the Facebook app.


Try using the app switcher function and remove it from background apps that are running. Also emails and text messages can cause the volume to fluctuate but somehow Facebook makes it stick.

Thanks guys for all your advice. I'll try closing down all apps when I finish up -press home button x2 then swipe up each app.

Also try going into the "settings" app then tap on "general" and scrolling down to "background app refresh" and switching it off.

You will save on data, battery life and this will considerably improve the iDevices performance.
<edit> The downside to this is data will need to be loaded anytime you use an app. In the big scheme this might be a 5 second delay.

If you see any issues (which I doubt) you can always revert the setting or choose which apps have access to this feature.

One way I have tested whether the sound reduction is caused by another app is to rewind a track for a second or two to see if the volume returns to normal. If it does then something else is causing it (notifications or whatever), if it doesn't then something is playing up with the software delivering the audio.
