The TruePlay feature is basically a feature that lets you fine-tune the equalizer settings of the Sonos speakers. It is available on many devices, including many iPhone models.

However, up until now, you could not use the feature if you had an iPhone 14 or 14 Pro. Well, as the title states, TruePlay is now available for the Apple flagships. 

The feature was first spotted at 9to5Mac. And if you look at the support page of Sonos, it says that the feature is fully supported on iPadOS and iOS, but there are some exceptions.

But the iPhone 14 range is not listed as one of the exceptions. You might not immediately get the Sonos TruePlay on your iPhone 14 or 14 Pro

The feature is currently rolling out by region. But do all speakers from Sonos require extra hardware? According to the audio specialist, the answer is no.

The thing is, Sonos Move and Roam, which are the portable speakers of the brand, have automatic TruePlay.

These speakers do not need any extra hardware for tuning the equalizer settings. But you need an external device to calibrate the sound for the rest of the devices. 

So, if you have one of the mentioned portable speakers, you don’t need to worry about not having the feature on your phone.

Wondering what TruePlay does? At its core, it analyzes the speaker’s surroundings and adjusts the audio output accordingly.

And once it is done adjusting the parameters, you can expect to get the best overall audio performance. In other words, with the feature turned on, the placement of the speakers does not matter for the sound output.

But what about Android phones? Do they have the TruePlay feature? Not really! Google’s mobile operating systems did not get any support from the brand. 

So, if you are feeling bad for not having the feature on your phone, spare a thought for those users with Android. Want to know how you can ensure good TruePlay tuning

You must do your best to minimize noise during the process. Sounds such as loud appliances, talking, music, and footsteps will cause problems with the process. 

Also, try to cover as much room as possible during the tuning process. For further guidance, check the video on the app.

And, no matter what you do, do not adjust the volume. The Sonos speakers will make fairly loud sounds during the process. 

If you change the volume, there will be negative impacts on the results. So, do not touch the volume knob during the process.
