Additional Fixes

  1. Sometimes these kinds of problems occur due to internal technical glitches and this can be fixed by restarting the iPhone once.
  2. Try updating your iPhone if not already done since Apple releases updates after working on the feedback and bugs received by iPhone users.
  3. iPhone cover case could also be the reason behind this problem. When your iPhone case fits too tight on the iPhone, it can create pressure on the volume buttons on the side of the iPhone. This in turn presses the volume button which lowers the iPhone volume automatically. So try replacing the iPhone case with a better fit one.
