    Well, whatever the case, and whether it's tied to anything or nothing, I have found that activating Siri and turning up the volume while in the Siri UI, the problem get solved.

    You don't have to go into Siri to fix it.  Any game app works as well to turn the volume up. It is a glitch in the iOS6 software.

    Can anyone test if the bug is still present in iOS 6.1 developer preview 2?

    I sure hope this is fixed soon. This is a very annoying bug. I haven't been able to isolate the cause but it occurs on my old 4s once I upgrade to ios 6 and now with my 5

    Well, for me I've figured out that it's obviously caused by apple's maps app, when you're using turn-by-turn navigation. After using turn-by-turn navigation the sound issue is present. Fixed it by terminating the maps app over "task manager" and set the ringer volume to the lowest and back to desired volume.

    Oh sorry, having an iPhone 4S with iOS 6.0.1 installed.

    [Update]

     

    Each time after using Siri the sounds are at low volume again, BUT after a few seconds (guess when the Siri process is determined automatically by iOS) the tones are back to the adjusted volume set in Tones settings.

     

    When using MAPS and especially turn-by-turn navigation (with voice response) the sound issue is reproducible present. I guess this is caused, because voice response in MAPS is using Siri's Voice (Process) to give the according instructions. If not shutting down MAPS, somehow the Siri process is still working and causing the malfunction.

    The only thing you have to do is shutting down MAPS. You don't even have to do anything else! No shutdown, no hard reset, no factory reset, no adjusting of volume...

    Just open up the "task Manager" by pushing Homebutton twice. If MAPS is running, shut down the MAPS Process and wait a few seconds (about 10 seconds). Sounds are fine again!

     

    This works fine for iPhone 4S with iOS 6.0.1

     

    Anyone can confirm?

    Wow nice find. This makes sense, as now that I think about it I only recall this issue occuring when I have the setting in voice options in maps to something other than "no voice" (i.e. no voice directions). I'll try to test this out on my iPhone 5 this weekend.

    Confirm - killing the maps APP returned my text volume to loud enough where I can hear it - thanks!

  • hippiesrlame Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I can also now confirm this works for me too. Almost kind of humorous that of course it's the maps app that is causing this issue with all the other issues with this app.

     

    For me, this issue was only occuring when connecting my phone to a bluetooth audio source. Now to correct, I no longer have to restart the phone. Yay!!

    Fixed!! Fixed!! Almost returned the darling iPhone 5 to store. Hard reset, start again, nothing with the settings all the way up. When my daughter figured out that there is the fancy cover. We trimed to the screen size and it works like in iphone 3!! Yaay! It was covering the speakers and mic...Duh....

    My iPad running iOS 6.1.3 had this problem, but changing the navigation volume, starting a route, and changing it back fixed it.

  • Soilkeeper Calculating status...

    It's a software issue. Simple fix: Just double click the button at the bottom of your phone and it will show all your open apps. Then hold your finger on one of them and close all of them (no data will get lost). Once they are all closed, your phone volume will be loud and adjustable with the regular volume (ringer) levels on the side of your phone or via "settings." Hope this helps.
