Looks like Beta 6 still didn't fix the unlock sound. Is anyone else still experiencing this?

This is a feature people! I've had it turned off since 2008! :)

I actually prefer just having a lock sound, don't feel the unlock sound is needed anymore or at least it needs changing for the new UI as the "sound" don't quite fit the UI anymore

Or it would be nice if they had different unlock/lock sounds to choose from. Especially now that IOS 7 has a different feel I feel it would be appropriate.

it's not a mistake, Apple doesn't miss things like this, this is their way of saying they are changing it. I don't think it will remain without sounds, but, the lock/unlock sounds are skewmorphic (however that's spelled), so these will change also...new sounds! :D

But, like OP, I'd like to be able to choose the sounds...all sounds, actually (even the bubble sounds in texting).

People don't get that there is still skumorphic elements in iOS 7. It's whole new physics engine is an example of this . iOS 7 is about removing skumorphic elements from the visual design.

What'd you expect from a 13mb update?

Which part of the visual design is the unlock sound? :p

I dunno, I put in a bug report regarding the iOS 7 beta 5 missing lock sound (figuring it would be flagged as a duplicate), but they responded asking for logs. Haven't sent it yet though.

It's not just about visual design, the lock/unlock sounds are skewmorphic by design also...I don't think you get the overall concept, maybe you should google it. (Skeuomorphic)

maybe that's because it isn't an issue. ...there is no way this would just slip by the people at Apple, I am sure they know about it...not one idevice with iOS 7 beta 5 or 6 has the unlock sound, now does it? Apple has been known to give hints at new or changing features in beta releases before.

Beta 6 was pushed out to fix one bug. Beta 7 might bring changes to the sounds.

Apple has been known to give hints at new or changing features in beta releases before.It's very easy for anything to slip by in a beta update, and even a non-beta update. It might seem obvious to some later on, but all kinds of things slip through with all kinds of updates involving all kinds of companies...just the nature of the beast.

Furthermore, if this was intentional, Apple wouldn't request more details about the issue, and would close the bug report as something like "works as designed", "won't fix", or even a duplicate of some sort.

IMHO, the lock and unlock sounds are too quick for the new iOS 7 fade in/out effect. Hope they are about to change them ;)

I agree, the entire sound collection needs refreshing on iOS 7.

That's because you can see. My wife is blind and relies in the unlock sound to let her know she's successfully unlocked the phone. As an accessibility issue, there really needs to be an unlock sound.

That is a very interesting aspect that I haven't considered, and it is a serious issue for those with disabilities. Did you send Apple feedback? Perhaps they can make it a toggle option under Accessibilities. That would make many other happy too.

I haven't reported it to Apple yet because I assume it's going to be fixed soon. However, if it's not restored in the next beta, I definitely will report it.

Well i guess your Wife isnt a Developer so therefore shouldn't be using a beta software.. of course this would be fixed/replaced in the GM

Where did he say that his wife is using iOS 7? He could be speaking on her behalf, meaning that if this is a feature and not a bug, people who are blind would be hindered. Geez.

It's a bug thats proven, if you disable lock sounds and reenable sometimes it works therefore showing its a bug

I hope so. Apple has always excelled at providing accessibility options. I don't think they would deliberately remove this feature unless they didn't realize that doing so created an accessibility issue. To be honest, if it didn't affect my wife, I'm not sure I would have realized that.

:D yeah, that'd be cool with the way they zoom in to the home page, (or, if you have an app open, it zooms into the app).

oh, I've not experienced this, I've tried, this does nothing for me, I've not heard one unlock sound since beta 5. (iPhone 5 A1428/AT&T)

It wasn't so much a answer to the op but a people saying the OS doesn't have skumorphic elements . I was actually saying just because its visual design is different doesn't mean it's noise is .

For that matter iOS 6 doesn't have a lock in its visual design.
