Choosing an alarm in the iOS Clock app includes setting a time, deciding on a sound, and even adding or removing a vibration pattern. But when it comes to the alarm volume, this adjustment is nowhere to be found. Changing the alarm ring volume takes place in the main Settings, not in the Clock app.
Sounds and Ringtones
iPhone alarms can keep the day moving, from a wake up call to reminders for weekly events. By default, the iPhone likes to vibrate, which makes alarms harder to miss. But sometimes the sound of an alarm going off is enough, especially when your iPhone is resting on a hard table or night stand.
The never-ending tap, tap of physical keyboards has been replaced by a sound effect on the iPhone. Apple provides familiar clicking noises with its virtual iOS keyboard, which are enabled by default. While Keyboard Clicks may help to confirm that a character key is pressed, the sounds are not necessary. Some iPhone users may prefer to silence the iOS keyboard once and for all.
Knowing when an important call or text comes through can save time. Instead of looking at your iPhone, there's an easy way to give different people their own unique iOS ring. This means iPhone owners can know exactly who's calling or sending messages right away. Custom text tones and ringtones can be configured directly from the Contacts or Phone app.
Sometimes you want to hear a special ringtone for specific callers. To assign a ringtone other than the default ringtone to a contact follow these steps:
- Open your Contacts list.
- Select the name of the contact to customize.
- Touch the Edit button. Scroll down and select ringtone.
- Choose the desired ringtone from the list. You will hear the ringtone.
- Press the Done button in the upper right hand corner of the screen.
- Tap the Done button again.
- Now when that contact calls you will hear the new ringtone.
