Wallpaper and Sounds

Learn how to change your iPad wallpaper and use iPad sound for notifications and other tasks in this free lesson.


The Sounds settings allow you to change the sound effects for different alerts (like a new email or calendar event), as well as your ringtone for the FaceTime app. You can also adjust the volume for these sounds and enable or disable system sound effects like keyboard clicks and lock sounds.

To edit sound settings:

  1. Tap the Settings icon on your Home screen.
  2. Tap Sounds in the left pane.
  3. Customize the sound settings as desired. For example, you can choose a new ringtone for the FaceTime app or a new alert tone for email messages. Take some time to test different sounds and settings to find the ones you like best.

You can also use your iPad's side switch to mute or unmute all sounds.
