Boost Your iPhone Experience: Learn How to Change the Default Notification Sound in Minutes!

Apple has heard the complaints of iPhone users and has finally made a change that many have been waiting for. With the release of the iOS 17.2 software update for iPhone, users are now able to customize their default notification sound.

Previously, iPhone users were only able to choose their ringtone and text tones, but now they have the ability to change the default notification sound for incoming calls, text messages, voicemails, emails, as well as calendar and reminder alerts.

To change the default notification sound, users can follow these simple steps:

1. Open the Settings app.
2. Navigate to the ‘Sounds & Haptics’ settings pane.
3. Select ‘Default Alerts’.
4. Choose a new sound for the alert tone, which can be built-in, purchased from the Tone Store, or no sound at all.
5. Customize the vibration in the Default Alerts -> Haptics screen.
6. Press Back to confirm and save the changes.

This new setting will change the noise that apps make that use the default sound for notifications, such as Facebook and Instagram. However, it will not affect apps that use their own custom sounds.

For those who have updated to iOS 17 and do not like the new default alert sound, they can change it back to what it was in iOS 16. The new default sound in iOS 17 is called ‘Rebound’, and users can go back to the previous sound by choosing ‘Tri-tone’ in the Sound settings.

Overall, the new update gives iPhone users more control and customization options for their notification sounds, addressing a long-standing complaint from many users. This change will undoubtedly be welcomed by those who have been asking for more flexibility and personalization in their iPhone alert tones.
