I want to stop the onscreen volume display from popping up when I change the volume.

The icon is too big and blocks the center of my screen, and stays there for a second or two. I know I'm changing the volume - I'm pressing the buttons!

Is there a way to disable this icon?

There's no way to disable the animation when using the physical buttons. If the icon shows up for far longer than the buttons are pressed, I would suspect your volume button might be stuck or there's hardware / sensor damage inside.

For a workaround, I have an iPad with a similar problem, and I use AssistiveTouch

  • Device > Volume Control (tap a few times) to dismiss the popup.
  • Thank you. I've been using this for a while now. I wish there was a neater way... though once I got used to it it's not bad. – LN6595 Feb 8 '17 at 17:15
  • And I switched to a new case and the volume stopped changing at random intervals. – LN6595 Jun 14 '17 at 22:07

As far as I know, no there's not. The indicator isn't there to tell you you changed the volume as much as its there to tell you what you've changed the volume to.

If you jailbreak, there's some tweaks that remove this or move it to the status bar.
