For help I gave someone over the past few years I was given a new iPad Mini Retina (32g) and very nice and unexpected it was. Anyway I have an issue with the volume it just isn’t there. Say you are watching a movie from Netflix if you were any distance from the machine you’d hardly hear what the actors are saying. The volume on YouTube seems a bit better but again nothing to write home about. There is more volume coming from my Galaxy S4 when on loudspeaker than the iPad. I haven’t put any of my own music on yet as I’ve set up an appointment with an Apple genus’s for early next week. I want to discuss the sound issue with them. That’s why I’m here and I should say that with the exception of an old iPod this is my only piece of Apple equipment. From what I’ve read online this seems a very common problem with the iPad Mini Retina and one that seems to be worldwide. On the Apple forums there seems to be a great kick up about it and Apple don’t seem to be addressing the issue. If this a universal problem affecting ALL the iPad Mini Retina’s produced to date, or is it just a very bad batch that got out on Apple and they are in denial? Or is it just that you can't reasonably expect to get volume from such a small creature? What should I actually be saying to the genesis at the store? What should I realistically expect from them? Have I got a lemon of a machine? I can’t very well ask the person who gave it to me to return it. I’m posting here rather than on the Apple forum because I recon you guys can be more objective that those on product specific forums So any of you guys out there have the same problem with an iPad Mini Retina and if so what did you do and what was the result. As always many thanks for your responses.
