For the iPhone 14 series, Apple has added an optional new accessibility feature that plays a sound when the iPhone is powered on and off. Here's how to enable them.
Apple added the startup and shutdown chimes as a new accessibility feature after many Blind users and people with low-vision reportedly asked the company for a clear way to tell whether their iPhone had restarted, and now anyone can enable them.
Here's how to enable the new feature on iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
- Launch the Settings app on your iPhone 14.
- Scroll down and tap through to Accessibility.
- Under "Hearing," tap Audio/Visual.
- Toggle on the switch next to Turn On & Off Sounds.
That's all there is to it. You'll now know whenever your iPhone has started up or shut down without even having to look at the screen. To disable the sounds, simply turn off the same toggle in Settings.
