    Has anyone ever experienced issues with the music volume when their iPhone is connected to Bluetooth devices? My volume was extremely low on my iPhone 6 when connected to the Bluetooth of my Honda Civic stereo. I'm running iOS 8.4. After rebooting my phone, the volume was fine. It's happened in iOS 8.3 for me as well. Anyone have this issue?

    I have a portable Bluetooth speaker, sound is quite normal on 5S and 8.4.

    Yes. I turn up the volume much more when listening to a podcast over Bluetooth compared to live radio.

    I have a Civic as well, and it I thought the music sounded a little bit lower than usual after I upgraded to 8.4, but I downgraded to 8.3 and it seems fine now. Maybe you're not the only one1

    Yeah Jayson, with Apple Music I noticed a difference in volume right away when playing music on my car. I also have iTunes Match and the same thing. This issue I mentioned above was actually something else. I believe it's happened a few times both in iOS 8.3 and 8.4 where the volume sounds like it's turned down almost completely. I check my volume on my phone and it's maxed out. In fact today it was low, went up and low again on its own. I'm not sure what caused it but turning the Bluetooth on and off doesn't fix it. I have to either reboot my phone or turn the radio off and back on. When I connect my phone to my Sienna it sometimes plays but skips the songs like a scratched cd. Strange stuff and I realize a lot of iOS 8 adopters have had several issues with their Bluetooth. I guess I'll keep an eye on it.

    I think the reason the volume is turning down on you is due to Facebook. This used to happen to me all the time, but quitting Facebook solved the issue. I eventually deleted Facebook completely and haven't had the volume lower by itself since. Worth a look at.

    I actually figured out how to restore the music level back to normal. Go to Music in settings and turn off "Sound Check". That should do the trick.

    I have an iPhone 4 and didn't have half the options available to me for this same problem. My ringer volume on my phone is always at highest level but my volume for games is always low. But by accident yesterday, whilst I had my car in accessories mode, I turned the volume up on my phone and that changed the volume for my bluetooth audio in the car as well. So it seems, all you need to do is ensure your "phone volume" is high when using your car bluetooth audio!!
