Wallpaper and Sounds

Learn how to change your iPhone wallpaper and use iPhone 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 text message or email), as well as your ringtone. You can also adjust the volume for these sounds, customize the vibration settings, 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, then tap Sounds.
  2. Customize the sound settings as desired. For example, you can choose a new ringtone or a new alert tone for text messages. Take some time to test different sounds and settings to find those you like best.

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