Hi,

A lot of times when I get a WhatsApp message, there is no sound. The screen turns on though.
It happens around 50% of the time. Not sure if it's since the iOS 9 update or even before that.
Does anyone else have this issue and have a solution for this because it's getting a little frustrating:(

Happens to me all the time, and it's the worst.

iOS 9 on my 6s and my Apple Watch notifications are a total mess too. I'll have my phone unlocked, and in use, and still have my watch ping with notifications.

It's happened to me on iOS 8 and 9. Probably 7, don't recall. Usually FB notifications, but I removed FB. I have missed some texts though because of this. It seems random but lately infrequent enough to not be bothered.

SE Penna.
I'm noticing all types of sound issues on my iPhone 6 under iOS 9.x.x since I updated. When headphones are plugged in and listening to music, it lowers music volume but no notification sounds - not app or sound specific. In normal mode on occasion, I get the vibration but can hardly hear the audio for it. Others have reported issues. Hope Apple fixes it.

Looks like it fixed in 9.1 beta 4, have it install since last night and haven't missed single notification , push email is back to working too.
