    I just realized that even though I have it set for the volume buttons not to affect the volume, it still does!



    Any ideas how to fix this?

    Just so we're clear, that setting 'should' only affect the ringer and alerts. Controlling the volume of Music and videos with the volume buttons should still work.

    Sometimes I hit those buttons by mistake while holding my phone. That is why I don’t want them to change my volume. Otherwise I wouldn’t care. I just don’t understand why the volume buttons still work when I have disabled them

    It’s not possible to disable those buttons.

    That toggle you disabled is for the volume buttons.
    When enabled, you can change the ringer loudness with them.
    When disabled you can only change volume loudness (as in movies, music, and other sounds) with them.

    Then why does my ringer volume change with those buttons when I have chosen to disable that option?

    Yep, I disabled mine and hit volume down and sure enough, the ringer volume changed.

    Close the Settings app and go back to home screen, try to change the volume now.
    It will say volume in the pop up, rather than ringer.

    Really confusing there, Apple. :-)
