    I read somewhere that the unlock sound is revised, that is has more of an "echo" sound.

    Really? Why? :( I don't know why it matters but this disappoints me.

    It's still there, it's the same old sound with a bit of echo.

    You're referring to the lock sound. OP is wondering about the unlock sound, which is no more.

    It sucks they've removed the unlock sound. How else can blind people know they've successfully unlocked their device?

    I don't. I even tried resetting all settings, but still no unlock sound.

    It doesn't really matter to me because I turn the lock sounds off anyway, but as I said, it sucks for blind people who have to rely on that sound to tell them they've unlocked their device.

    This is probably an issue that will be corrected by release 'cause you don't have it and I do so it's still there there's just a bug.

    Did you use any of the betas or go straight from 6.1.x?

    Cos unlock was removed in the last couple of betas.

    I think it was absent in beta 5. Beta 6 was more a security thing. I don't miss it.

    I went from beta 6 to GM. Maybe that explains it.

    Yes interesting. I went from the beta... so can everyone who hasn't got it confirm they upgraded from Beta 5/6? And those who do have it confirm they upgraded from iOS 6?

    The sound effect is still on the device. I attempted to disable and re-enable unlock sound in Settings | Sounds, and I heard it. The bug is that it's simply not set or called properly when the device is unlocked.

    The noise you hear when you do that is the lock sound. Which is still present for everyone.

    It's well established that the unlock sound (sound played after swipe to unlock) is gone.

    The lock sound however (sound played when the sleep/wake button is clicked), is still there.
