    In IOS 7 beta, they had IOS 6 sounds and ringtones. But after the GM release they added all the new tones.

    Will we see the same with OS X Yosemite?

    They already changed the startup look by making it black instead of white and put a loading bar under a white Apple logo.

    Is the ancient startup sound seeing a end soon along with other sound effects?

    right, but they're not going to make brand new sounds, they'll use some iOS 7 sounds likely

    Just because Apple added new tones to iOS7 doesn't mean they will do the same in Yosemite. They didn't add any to Mavericks, and TBH I don't remember the last time Apple added any truly new sounds to OS X. There really isn't a need or a demand for new sounds, so it would make more sense for Apple to focus on the things that are drawing attention.

    I'm pretty sure the startup chime is conformation of diagnostic checks being passed on boot and is hard coded in the firmware - it may be on something like the sound chip, I'm not 100% on where it is exactly.

    Anyway, an OS update can't change it.

    Does it matter? They may add some in the GM, but what does it matter during the DEVELOPER previews?

    I'll tell you what I've missed most, since the time of OS8 and OS9 and even the early days of the first public OS X beta, is: The sound alert that Apple called 'Indigo' - That loud, music 'donk'.

    They kept Sosumi, but removed Indigo.

    I've always considered Indigo one of the two TRADEMARK Apple sounds...For me, when I think Apple, I always think of Indigo and EEP!

    BRING THEM BACK DAMNIT!!!
