    Is anyone else noticing that the keyboard click sounds on the iPhone 7 are much lower then the sound on a iPhone 6s running iOS 10?

    I have my 7 Plus next to my 6s Plus and I can hardly hear the keyboard click or phone dialer sound on my 7 Plus but on my 6s Plus have no problem. Its at least twice as loud on the 6s Plus vs the 7 Plus.

    The volume is up all the way on both devices.

    Yep same here. I found the volume low on the keyboard event if the volume is at the Max. On my iPhone 6 I feel the volume is louder.

    I have the same problem on my 7plus. The click sounds are almost impossible to hear. Annoying.

    Try turning the volume lower. Sometimes that actually makes the keyboard clicks louder.

    Everyone is having all these problems. I'm genuinely curious if these are defects or if I'm just not as critical? I don't mean that in a bad way. I personally just am not having any issues.

    this isn't an issue with the iPhone 7.

    max volume in iOS 10 on my 6S keyboard sounds are low.

    it might be done by design.

    personally i've forgotten about keyboard clicks.. had them off for years.

    I noticed the same thing when I upgraded from the 6s, now on the 7 plus. I did reset settings, and now keyboard noise is just as loud as it was on my 6s. I know this doesn't fix a lot of problems, but it did help with a few things I was dealing with :) worth a try

    I'm fairly certain it was a design choice. Loud enough for you to hear them but not quite loud enough to guarantee to piss off people around you.

    Yes it is because I have a iPhone 6s Plus right next to me iPhone 7 and the volume is twice as loud on the 6s vs the 7. And this is not just the keyboard it does go into other system sounds like the lock sound.

    No its not. If it was it would be the same as it is on a iPhone 6s.

    I made a quick video showing the difference.

    Same issue here... seems like a bug, mine is barely audible - much lower than the video. iPhone 7 Plus

    Keyboard clicks, the lock noise and the sound it makes when an iMessage is sent are all very low

    I much prefer the lower volume to the keyboard sounds. I also prefer the new sounds for the keyboard as well.

    Has anyone noticed how the keyboard click sounds on the iPhone 7 Plus sounds somewhat diminished than say the iPhone 6s Plus? I can't seem to find a setting to alter the volume but just disable. Not sure if it's just me or if it's affecting others. I mean the sound is great and loud and better than last year's model but man, I sure miss really hearing my keyboard clicks...

    I noticed this as well. I wish they were just a bit louder as compared to my 6S plus

    Same. So quiet. Turned it off. Now it's really quiet. It was much louder and adjustable on the 6s+.

    Most complained that the keyboard clicks were too loud in previous iterations of iOS. Can't please everyone I guess. Maybe Apple should have allowed volume controls.

    It wasn't that it was loud per say, but there were random volume explosions while typing so a lot of people just turned it off

    This still occurs. Blame the iMessage buddy who likes to send his or her thoughts broken up into consecutive messages rather than one complete thought in a single message.
