How to Switch to Mono Audio on an iPhone 11

By default your iPhone is in stereo audio. This means that when you wear headphones, you will hear different things in each ear.

You can adjust the settings for a lot of the sounds and audio devices on your iPhone. If you have AirPods, for example, then you can even set up a notification to tell you when you’ve left them somewhere.

But if you have difficulty hearing, or if you simply don’t like stereo audio, then you may be wondering how to switch to mono.

Fortunately this is a setting that you can adjust by changing something on the Accessibility menu.

Our guide below will show you how to switch to mono audio on your iPhone 11.
