    I just upgraded to a brand new iPhone 12 mini (iOS 14.4.2). All audio features are perfectly fine but I noticed that when I say "hey Siri, turn OFF smart invert", before Siri answers I hear a clicking sound similar to an electric static shock. It’s like a popping sound you might hear from a...

    I have bought the new AirPods Max on day 1. Very happy with it except that sometimes sound stutters and then turn off, no more sound comes out like the AirPods Max were disconnected ; they are not, they are still seen by the iPhone 12 Pro Max/2020 Intel MacBook Air.

    iPhone 12 iPhone 12 Mini Stereo Speakers Sound not centered

    Hi, just tested my new 12 Mini with the build in speakers. There is clearly a greater loudness coming from the earpiece speaker than the bottom speaker.

(Attached an article about it). I've been hesitant to update them to...

    Temporary Rogue Amoeba App replacement

    I use Rogue Amoeba's Airfoil or Soundsource to redirect my iTunes to speakers hooked up via USB DAC. I do not use that channel for other sound. They are still out of action. Does anybody know of a temporary work around?

    So my home theatre system has always been based around my Xbox one. And I run a plex server alongside as well. I always thought being a gaming system the sound output from the Xbox would be superior but I have recently added an Apple Tv 4K with my sound system and guess what, I am hearing sounds...
