    The speaker of my iPad 3 has all of a sudden gone substantially down in volume. I have already reset it once but have not reverted to its original. Please suggest what can be done to restore the speaker to its original volume.

    Hi, welcome to iPF!

    As I'm not quite certain about the way you performed a reset, I ask you to do it again, this way: press and hold Home and power button at the same time until the Apple logo appears, then release them. Your iPad should turn on on it's own.

    Also restart your device: turn it off, wait for a few minutes, then turn it on again.

    If this doesn't help, take a look at your settings:

    In Settings - General - Accessibility - Hearing make sure Mono Audio is disabled.
    In Settings - Sounds look at Ringer & Alerts. See if "Change with Buttons" is enabled.
    In Settings - Music - Volume Limit should be set to Off.

    I came here for exactly this same reason. The sound from my iPad has suddenly become pathetically quiet. I've tried all thes things. Still almost inaudible. Do I sennd it back?

    Hi, welcome to iPF!

    First, try the following:

    Open an app to play sound/music, open the Control Center (slide upwards from the bottom) and try to adjust the volume using the slider at the left:

    Turn off Bluetooth in Settings - Bluetooth.

    If your iPad is in a case, make sure the speakers are not covered by it.

    Use a brush to clean speakers and connector. Do this cautiously. Use a clean and dry brush with soft bristles.

    Hope that helps.

    You took me by surprise by your fast reply!
    I should have said that I usually play sound through external, Bluetooth speakers but had tried my iPad with both internal and external speakers - both were quiet.
    I have turned off Bluetooth and my internal speakers are back to full volume. Thanks!
    Now I just have to work out how to get my iPad to drive my Bluetooth speakers!

    Now that you know the reason for your low Volume, just remember to turn off Bluetooth when you want to use the speakers of your iPad, and turn it on again when you use the Bluetooth speakers. :)

    Disabling blue tooth means that the $100 Apple pencil is also disabled. You're saying that the expensive iPad Pro I recently bought does not function with the superior sound quality of its marketing when I use the Apple pencil?

    The expensive pencil that I waited 6 weeks to get because Apple saw no need to bundle the 2 items together?

    Seriously?
