    I use my iPhone as an alarm clock every morning. Last iPhone I had was the 7. Every night I turn the phone to mute, and raise the volume to three lines on volume before setting the alarm time. The volume is then perfect when the alarm rings.

    But, now with new X I do the same. Silent mode/mute, set volume to three lines and set the alarm. When the alarm rings the sound is so loud I get scared every morning. My gf wanna throw the damn phone through the window

    The volume works flawless all other times.

    Have anyone else noticed this?

    I️ haven’t noticed this particular issue, more so the opposite. Ever since I️ updated to iOS 11, my alarm volume seems to be much lower even at full volume setting. I’ve also noticed that the screen lock sound is much quieter.

    I have noticed that just across the board my X is a lot louder than my 6S+ was. Just adjust accordingly and lower the volume.

    I have been having the same experience. I also keep my volume on the lower side, and find that it's ridiculously louder than before.

    hey guys, I have a different issue.. Since my 6s I use the Do not Disturb mode while night and allowing just calls.
    So right now with my X I dont get any sound on Alarm while on DND mode, can anyone else please check if they get any sound on DND mode with alarm?
    Mine only vibrates and I have missed my Gym today morning. :(

    Settings-> Sounds & Haptics-> RINGER AND ALERTS Change With Buttons (toggle on)

    otherwise, you're just changing the volume for things like music/videos.. with the above setting ON, you'll change the ringer volume with the side buttons.

    Mine does not do this. I use DND every night and alarm has functioned correctly every morning...so far.
