    Does anyone know where I can download a file for the iOS 6 tri tone? I hate the new one on iOS 7.

    Just so there is no confusion you are aware that Tri-tone is still there in the classic section in sounds right? I just want to be sure.

    It's changed in iOS 7, I'm 99.99999% confident that's what they mean by "new one".

    You never know until you ask. He could be referring to the new default tone. Who knows :)

    apparently the guy who replied right after me is thinking the same thing

    It's there but it sounds different than on iOS 6. OP, you can probably find the .m4r of original Tritone on Google.

    Now I understand what you're saying. That Echo in the new Tri-tone is so annoying. It almost sounds like it's coming from a busted speaker. :mad:

    It's definitely changed from the old Tri-Tone. Maybe Apple will bring it back in 7.0.3 and move this one to the new tones section?

    I hate the so-called "classic" tri-tone in iOS7. It's my overriding wish to get back the iOS6 version, especially as it's the default notification sound that can't be changed (better still, let me set my own notification sound).

    If you've messed with it, it's not a classic any more, it's remixed.

    You can download the original online as a "custom ringtone", and you can set your own notification sounds in Sounds.

    I think the original is on zedge.net - search ringtones for tri tone.

    I noticed right away that it has a feedback-sounding high pitch ring in it.

    The others I tried seemed untouched, I wonder what made them redo this one. Could it just be a bug? They sure didn't improve it...

    It's not a bug. They changed the sound of it on purpose.

    Not for alerts like Facebook you can't. You can turn sounds on or off and that's all.

    To be honest, I think it's sounds better. However, I think it's quite disturbing that Apple groups the iOS 6 tones as 'classic', yet still they change it!

    Classic=classic=original=untouched=like how it always has been.

    I am trying to remember where I read or heard this (it might have been Apple's 5c/5s event) but I seem to recall hearing that the Classic tones were "remastered" to sound better. Whatever that means.

    Not sure why they changed it - it is a subtle, but noticeable change
