Live Photos is a feature on an iPhone that captures a few seconds of video and audio before and after you take a picture. It creates a mini-movie of sorts that you can view in your Photos app. But how do you hear the sound on Live Photos? In this article, we will explain how to hear sound on Live Photos and troubleshoot some common problems.
How to Hear Sound on Live Photos
When you view a Live Photo, it should automatically play the video and audio. To hear the sound, make sure your iPhone is not on mute and the volume is turned up. The sound should come from the bottom speaker on your phone.
If you’re not hearing any sound, try these troubleshooting steps:
Check the Mute Switch
The first thing to check is the mute switch on your iPhone. It’s a small switch on the side of your phone that turns the ringer and alerts on and off. If the switch is on, your phone will be on silent mode and not play any sound. Flip the switch to the off position to hear sound on Live Photos.
Adjust the Volume
If the mute switch is off and you’re still not hearing sound, check the volume level on your iPhone. You can adjust the volume using the volume buttons on the side of your phone or in the Control Center. Make sure the volume is turned up and not all the way down.
Restart Your iPhone
If you’re still having trouble hearing sound on Live Photos, try restarting your iPhone. Press and hold the power button until the “slide to power off” message appears. Slide the button to turn off your phone, then press and hold the power button again to turn it back on. Try playing a Live Photo again to see if the sound works.
Update Your iPhone
If you’re still having issues with Live Photos, make sure your iPhone is up to date with the latest software update. Go to Settings > General > Software Update to check for updates. If there is an update available, download and install it to see if it fixes the problem.
Hearing sound on Live Photos is easy when everything is working properly. Make sure your iPhone is not on mute, the volume is turned up, and your phone is up to date with the latest software updates. If you’re still having trouble, try troubleshooting steps like restarting your phone or checking the mute switch.
