How to Change the Default Notification Sound in iOS 17.2

With the new iOS 17.2 update, Apple has made it possible for users to modify the default notification sound on their iPhone phones. This will come as welcome news to those who weren’t thrilled with the new standard “Rebound” notification introduced in iOS 17.

In the past, iOS offered only limited options for customizing ringtones and text messages, including the ability to set custom sounds to alert you to new emails, calendar events, and reminders. However, all other notification types used a preset sound, and users had no option to change it.

The iOS 17 update changed the default notification tone from “Rebound” to “Rebound,” which caused dissatisfaction among some users who complained that the new sound was less noticeable. The appearance of functionality for customizing standard sound in iOS 17.2 will be the answer to their prayers.

To customize the ringtone and haptic feedback for notifications from apps that use standard sound, users need to follow a few steps:

1) Open Settings on your iPhone.

2) Next, Sounds & Haptics.

3) Select Default Alerts.

4) Change the alert sound. You can use one of the built-in ones in iOS, buy a sound from the store, or turn off notification sounds altogether.

To change the haptic vibration, tap Haptics. There, you can choose a vibration from preset options, create your own using Create Vibration, or select Not Selected.

By following these steps, you can set notifications that use a standard sound to the alert melody that suits your taste. If the changes don’t suit you, you can always repeat the process and return to the original “Bounce” sound.
