    No, the app/tweaks that are out there for this make no difference.

    I dont think software can change what the speaker can put out from the factory. If it could go higher Apple wouldnt intentionally make it quiter.
    I remember the iphone 4 days and yes that speaker is not strong at all.
    With the 4S and iphone 5 they have really improved on that. The one on the i5 has the loudest speaker of all iphones released so far.

    That's not necessarily true. I don't know if it is still true, but I know in the past Apple limited the max brightness on the iPhone likely because of battery concerns. Apple simply decided that nobody needed the screen to be on full brightness and didn't want to see battery life issues as a result of people needlessly maxing out the brightness. But you could download flashlight apps from Cydia that bypassed iOS's brightness limit and get an even brighter screen.

    Is the same true for the speakers? I don't have a clue, but it is possible that Apple intentionally limits the max volume output because the quality of the sound isn't as good when it's up at its max volume. And if that were the case, a software tweak really could "fix it". I'm not saying it is, just saying that theoretically a software tweak could be all that is necessary.

    This thing about the iphone 4 sound hack has been brought up many times over the years.
    I would love to tell you it works but it doesnt.
    It has been tested before and after and the only difference is in the users head:D
    The package didnt improve a thing sound wise at all:D

    Not sure if they still do it, but with older iPods they used to limit the max volume so that you couldn't damage your hearing when using earphones. Perhaps they limited the max volume on the speaker because when it's at absolute max it's extremely tinny and will sound like a piece of crap?

    I've bought my iPhone 5 yesterday and I immediately noticed it's way louder than the iPhone 4

    While it won't help you playing back YT videos, local (or LAN networked) videos can be played back with volume boosting in several third-party video player apps.

    Of them (for this unparalleled DSP functionality like this) I recommend It's Playing the most. The other titles also supporting volume boosting (e.g., GoodPlayer) generally cant' apply boosting while decoding videos in hardware, only while doing the same in software.
