You can finally fine-tune the equalizer settings of your Sonos speakers with your iPhone 14 or 14 Pro. Sonos TruePlay has been available on a wide and varied range of phones since its launch in 2015, but it’s only just become available for Apple’s latest iPhones, a full three months after launch.
The feature was noticed by an eagle-eyed reader of 9to5Mac. The Sonos support page (opens in new tab), ahem, supports this – it says all fully supported iOS and iPadOS devices are supported, with a few exceptions. The iPhone 14 range is not listed as one of the exceptions.
The feature may roll out on a regional basis, so you may have to wait for it to trickle down to your location. We did reach out to Sonos for clarification.
The Sonos Roam and Move – the portable speakers from Sonos – have automatic TruePlay, which does not require any additional hardware. But the rest of the speakers need an external device to calibrate. TruePlay analyzes your environment and adjusts the audio output accordingly, so wherever you place the speaker, you’ll get the best performance.
And if you think iPhone 14 owners have been waiting a long time for TruePlay, think about those using Android: the feature is still not available on Google’s mobile operating system.
