Unlock Your iPhone’s Power Sounds to Hear Shutdown and Bootup Chimes Every Time You Turn Off and Restart Your Device « iOS & iPhone :: Gadget Hacks


When you shut down, boot up, or restart your iPhone, it never makes a sound. Many computers and Android devices do, so why can’t your iPhone? Well, some of you may never need to ask that question again.

There’s a hidden setting on iOS 16 that gives you a chime sound every time you turn off your iPhone or turn it back on. You’ll hear it at the same volume level each time, regardless of your device’s volume level. Your iPhone can even be on silent mode, and you’ll still hear the shutdown and power-on chime.

The only issue is that it’s only for iPhone 14 series models. So if you have an iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, or iPhone 14 Pro Max, you can enable the power-down and boot-up sounds.

It’s super helpful for blind and low-vision users since it’s impossible to tell when an iPhone is shutting down or powering on without it. And it’s just as valuable for everyone else, so you no longer have to stare at your iPhone waiting for the Apple logo to pop up. Plus, it just sounds cool.
