sound volume bug, please help

iOS & iPadOS

I am experiencing a bug with the alarm volume on my iphone. Most of the time when my alarm goes off, the sound is at 100% where I like it. Sometimes, however, the alarm is much quieter. I don’t know why this happens, but it's very random. I’ve checked the sounds settings, and my ringer is at 100%, even when this bug occurs. As far as I know, phone calls aren’t affected by this bug.
Does anybody know of a work around for this bug? This is very frustrating, especially since I have to get to work on time. If there are no work arounds, can anybody recommend an alarm app that's accessible and loud enough?

Are you running the latest version of IOS?
There is an IOS update today as well. I know this bug was present in previous versions of IOS, so that makes me think perhaps you are using an older version of IOS where this bug might be present. I still check in settings sometimes before I go to sleep to make sure the volume is not lowered because of this bug that was previously present in prior versions of IOS.

Before going to bed, I turn up the voice on my phone so I'm sure the alarm will wake me up.

You might want to update, see if that fixes your problem. It shouldn't make it any worse. I've been using it since last night and I've not noticed any volume issues yet.

As far as I know, the only alarm you can customize is the one under the sleep settings. you can change the volume for that alarm in particular.
