If you find that your iPhone default notification ringtone is not loud enough you can follow my guide to change the default notification sound on your iPhone. In iOS 17 the default notification volume was not loud enough and users were unable to change it. But with the release of iOS 17.2 Apple introduced a new software update that addresses this issue.
Apple recently launched the iPhone 15 and iOS 17 but developers forgot to include an option to change the default notification sound. After receiving numerous complaints Apple finally addressed this issue in iOS 17.2 which resolves the problem.
With iOS 17, Apple made a significant alteration by replacing the original Tri-tone with Rebound. Personally, I’m not a fan of this change and many others share the same statement. The new sound doesn’t seem as audible as of previous default notification sound.
If you’re like me and prefer the default tone with haptic vibration for apps like WhatsApp and more follow these simple steps to make the switch.
How to Change Your iPhone’s Default Notification Sound in iOS 17.2
- Launch settings apps.
- Click Sound & Haptics.
- Tap Default Alerts
- Find your preferred sound from the list and select it.
- To change the default haptic vibration tap the haptics option on the top, then find and select your preferred haptics feedback. You can also create your own haptic vibration also.
Hurrah! You have successfully learned how to change your iPhone’s default notification sound.
Note: Before following these steps ensure your iPhone is updated to iOS 17.2.
Once all the criteria are met any notification using the default alert tone will adopt the sound you recently selected. The same principle applies to haptic vibration settings. If you wish to revert to your default notification sound you can follow these steps in reverse to reset it to the original tone.
