    Is it just me or is there anyone else that wants the unlock sound back? After years of having it iOS 7 feels incomplete to me without it.

    Nope. Turned it off long long time ago. Annoying.

    Apple's head is too big for that kind of thinking. Their idea of perfect should apply to then tens of millions of users all over the world in a one-size-fits-all implementation.

    We're all going to have such eye problems from these white screens at night.

    Exactly this^^^
    Is it really necessary to take yet another option away from us.

    I'm in the same boat with you. I enjoyed the unlock sound. The stupid part is the unlock sound is gone but the lock sound is there...with an echo...:rolleyes:

    Exactly, just give it a toggle option. Oh well.

    For simplicity's sake it makes sense. If iOS had all of the options people have been clamoring for over the years the Settings app would be so bloated it would likely be too difficult for a not so tech savvy new user to pick it up and learn in a reasonable amount of time which is kind of what Apple is known for.

    Having said all that, I miss it too. It makes no sense to have one and not the other.

    I mean it's even labeled as "Lock sounds" in the settings > sounds section and not "lock sound". It's probably a bug.

    Could be a bug. It might have been removed for simplicity, but we won't know until 7.0.2 is released.

    Two things tell me it's not a bug.

    One, it was missing from several of the last betas. Second, it's labeled as singular in other languages from what I hear around these forums.

    And two things that imply that it can be a bug:

    - It's plural in English, which is the main language used for iOS.
    - The lock sound is there, and it would seem to make very little sense to leave that one there but not the unlock sound--same reasoning would essentially apply to them both.

    You really think they would have let a bug that obvious into the GM? I find that hard to imagine.

    I'm Pavlov's dog, conditioned to hear the lock/unlock sound.
