The noise is only there when VoiceOver is turned on, I could not get the power-off sound to play with VoiceOver off. Furthermore, the device has to not be on mute.
But it seems iOS 16.1 has a feature for the blind, so we know when our phones are turning off. There's no power-on sound effect however, either with or without VO--at least not on my iPhone 13.
The only devices I know of to have both sounds are the iPhone 14 series. If your older device doesn't have the sound for power-off when using iOS 16.1 with the device unmuted, it would be interesting to know which.
Fluke? Or am I right in thinking this was left there for VO users on purpose?
It's interesting that there's no power-on sound, but us blind people will know when our phones are turned on anyway by VoiceOver speaking. So I think this is just more a useful feature than a flashy sound.
14 Pro series have power on sounds
All others get the power off sounds.
It's the 14 pro that gets…
It's the 14 pro that gets the power on and power off sound.
It's all 14
It's all 14 models to my knowledge. Typical money hungry brats, spend a thousand plus bucks, get a sound that should at least be on the 11 and up. We'll just stare at our phones, waiting for the pretty apple logo to appear. Ooo, I see it!! Lmao
Power on sound
All 14 models have the power on sound. All other models have just the power off sound.
My iPad Mini 5 also has a power off sound after I upgraded. It is always through the speakers at least when I have Bluetooth headphones connected.
Most other Android devices have had power on and off sounds for a good decade now and I cannot understand why Apple haven't implemented this simple feature up until now.
As was said, android has done it for years, it's not that hard surely.
