I did search, but didn't find this particular problem. Why does iOS8 separate the alert sounds and volume of music/videos, etc? How do you lock both controls together? I am used to hearing my email get sent (whoosh), but now, I guess I must have turned the volume down when an alert was happening, and it turned the alert sounds down. My music is normal volume, but I cannot hear any alerts sounds, unless I go into Settings/Sounds, and turn up the volume for Alerts and Settings. I USED to be able to control the volume of all sounds. I don't know if it was an update, or my iPad Air, but the volumes of each, are separate, now. The "change with buttons" and "lock sounds" are both turned on. How do I lock both sound volume and alert volumes?
