    Is your device in a case? If so, is anything covering the mic? Have you tried recording your voice memo via the mic associated with Apple supplied EarBuds/EarPods and then see if the playback volume increases?

    Check loudspeaker icon in the top right corner of the Voice Memos app. It should be blue color. If it's white, it plays back everything at a very low level. Probably a precaution to not disturb other people by accidentally pressing Play button after recording.

    Also, if you haven't take a look at this app, you should. I love it.

    Thanks a lot, sir, for the helpful hint.

    Thank you, Guntis. This was driving me crazy but your solution was so simple.

    Why doesn't Apple provide documentation?! It would help avoid these piddling little issues.

    I had the same problem, even with the BLUE icon. I toggled it to WHITE, then back to BLUE, and my recordings had a louder volume. Go figure...

    When the icon is white it means it’s trying to play through something other than the phone. So why it plays even at a low volume confuses me. But yes, when the icon is blue it will be playing through the speakers on the phone. To change it you just tap on the icon.
