According to multiple users, an issue with iPhone 14 Pro Max has come up, particularly ‘loud text notification when on phone call’.

Since the launch of the iPhone 14 Pro Max, users have reported a peculiar issue regarding the volume of notifications for incoming text messages during phone calls, with many expressing their dissatisfaction over the loud and disruptive nature of these notifications.

There have been reports indicating that the volume of the notifications is sometimes excessively loud, reaching a point where it feels like the sound is forcefully being blasted into the ear. Despite attempts to troubleshoot the issue, no solution has been found thus far.

Consequently, users are unable to disable or mute the sound of text notifications while they are engaged in a phone call. This has resulted in some individuals being hesitant to answer calls due to the excessively loud noise that can be discomforting to their ears.

A user wrote: “Never have I had blasting notifications during a phone call until my new 14. No, I do not want to toggle it into Silent Mode each time I have a call. When is this going to be fixed? Anyone have a solution?”

Although the bug appears to be more prevalent among iPhone 14 Pro Max users, there have also been similar reports from iPhone 13 and 12 users. Overall, this bug is highly frustrating, and users are eagerly anticipating a resolution to alleviate the problem.

Official acknowledgement + workaround

There are allegations that Apple is aware of the problem and actively working on finding a solution. However, the team has not provided an estimated time of arrival (ETA) for the fix.

As a temporary workaround, users can switch their phones to silent mode during phone calls. However, it can be challenging to remember to revert the setting back to normal afterward. Nevertheless, this measure can protect users’ eardrums from potential damage.

The expectation is that Apple will introduce a permanent solution to address the bug causing loud text notification sounds during phone calls specifically for the iPhone 14 Pro Max model.
