Why does my volume keep going up by itself?- iPhone 14 Pro Max

Sometimes, when I try to lower my phone’s volume completely in the control center, it goes back up by itself most of the time. I have to keep swiping it down three times each time to make it stay low. I tried turning off a feature called attention-awareness, but it didn’t help. Does anyone else have this problem, or how can I fix it?

It can be frustrating when your iPhone’s volume behaves unexpectedly. Let’s explore some potential solutions to address this issue:

    • Reset All Settings: Go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. Note that this won’t erase your data but will reset all settings to default.

Take off the iPhone cover. If the cover doesn’t fit right, it might press the volume button, causing the volume to go up by itself. So, try taking off the cover to see if that’s the problem.

Hi Arthur… That sounds frustrating! It could be a software issue causing the volume to reset. Have you tried restarting your iPhone? Sometimes a simple restart can fix minor glitches like this. If that doesn’t work, you might want to consider resetting your iPhone’s settings, or even contacting Apple support for further assistance.
