How to Change Ping Sound on iPhone

Step 1: Open Settings

First, open the Settings app on your iPhone. This app contains all of the settings that control how your iPhone works.

Step 3: Choose a Sound

Under the “Sounds and Vibration Patterns” section, you’ll see a list of different types of notifications, such as “Ringtone” and “Text Tone”. To change the sound for a specific type of notification, tap on it. In this example, we’ll change the sound for text messages.

Step 4: Select a Custom Sound

At the top of the next screen, you’ll see a list of pre-installed notification sounds. To choose a custom sound, tap “Tones” in the top left corner.

From here, you can select either a tone that you’ve purchased from the iTunes Store or one that you’ve created yourself. To create your own tone, see Apple’s instructions on creating a custom ringtone.

Step 5: Save Your Changes

After selecting a new sound, make sure to tap “Save” in the top right corner to save your changes.
