    Whenever I open a video in the Photos app, it’s starts playing with the sound muted. I have to click the speaker icon every time to get sound. I’ve looked through the settings and tried a Google search, but haven’t found a solution.

    What simple step am I missing/overlooking to solve this minor annoyance?

    Hi, the only way I’ve found to stop this annoyance is in the settings for ’photos’.
    There’s a setting to ‘Auto-play videos and Live Photo’s’. If you leave this switched off you will have to manually start the video, but the sound starts at the same time.

    That did the trick! Seems very strange that you would auto start a video and not have the audio. What’s the point?

    Thanks for the help, it’s very much appreciated.
