My volume is at 100%. My Ringer and Alerts slider is at 100%. When i test the volume slider in Settings -> Sounds, it plays loudly. If I pick any sound category and test the sound it's super quiet. All system sounds on my iPad Pro are very quiet and I cannot get them play as loudly as the slider volume test. App sounds, music, movies, etc are all fine. It's just the sounds like "Text Tone", "Sent Mail", "Send Mail", etc...

I've tried rebooting, etc... anyone else have this problem? No other issues on the Pro. I'm loving it.

Has anyone noticed in certain apps the sound comes out of the bottom instead of the top speakers? I wonder if this is another bug they will be addressing? I play a driving game and both sound effects and the music come out of the bottom speakers where I'm holding device, would sound so much better out the top, like when in the rest of the OS.

I'm running Beta 4 and they're still pretty quiet.

I don't know if this has changed in beta 4, but in the sounds menu, if you change the "alerts" volume at the top of the screen and make it louder, it does make the keyboard clicks louder, but it also makes all the ring-tones etc louder, too, - obnoxiously so.

Is this new in beta 4? I have no idea because I have keyboard clicks turned off (prefer it that way).
