iPhone 11/Pro/Max Speaker Volume Test [Video]

Posted October 13, 2019 at 9:44pm by iClarified · 26936 views
Here's our test comparing the speaker volume of the new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max to the previous generation iPhone XR and iPhone XS Max.

We used a sound level meter to measure loudness. Readings were taken by placing the meter directly under the Lightning port and by placing the meter midway along the side of the device. Getting an accurate sound level on the iPhone is a little tricky as one speaker is positioned at the bottom of the device and the other is in the earpiece.

A reading 10 dBA higher is about 2x as loud. Based on our results, it appears this year's iPhones are no louder than last year's.

I didn’t notice a difference in the upgraded device specs so I wouldn’t expect much for audio improvement. Speakers are already pretty good for most handheld devices.
