Part 1. Hard Reboot to Fix iPhone Call Volume Low after Update
Many issues you run into on iPhone can be resolved through a simple reboot, but to make it more thorough, you can try a hard reboot. The reason is that some apps may occupy the speaker channel to produce sounds regardless of the scenarios, and you cannot actually shut them off. This happens most often to the streaming or video apps. By conducting a hard reboot according to the guide below, you can shut down them complete, and your iPhone call volume will resume to normal when it turns on again.
iPhone 8 or newer iPhones: Press and quickly release the Volume Up button. Then, press and quickly release the Volume Down button. Finally, press and hold the Side (Power) button until you see the Apple logo;
iPhone 7/7+: Hold down the Volume Down button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time for around 10 seconds. Release when your iPhone screen goes dark and restart;
