iOS 17: My Phone Is So Quiet, I Can Almost Hear Myself Think!

Congratulations, iPhone users! You've been blessed with a brand new iOS update, complete with a slew of exciting new features, such as:

A notification system that doesn't work

A default notification sound that's so faint, you'll miss it even if you're sitting in complete silence

I am extremely frustrated with the fact that my sound alerts for apps like WhatsApp, Teams, and Telegram have stopped working after updating to iOS 17. I rely on these alerts to stay on top of my work and personal communications, and now I am constantly missing out on important messages and notifications.

I have tried everything I can think of to fix the problem, including restarting my phone, checking my notification settings, and uninstalling and reinstalling the affected apps. Nothing has worked.

I am not the only one who is experiencing this issue. There are hundreds of posts on Apple's support forum and social media from other users who are reporting the same problem.

It is clear that this is a widespread bug in iOS 17, and I am very disappointed that Apple has not yet released a fix. I am unable to use my phone the way I need to use it, and I am constantly worried that I am missing out on important messages.

I am hoping that apple fixes this issue as soon as possible. In the meantime, I am left to find other ways to stay on top of my communications, such as by constantly checking my apps for new messages and notifications. This is not an ideal solution, and it is making my life much more difficult.

Apple's official support forum has a dedicated thread for users who are experiencing notification issues on iOS 17. As of September 24, 2023, the thread has over 1,000 posts from users who are reporting that they are missing out on important notifications, such as text messages, phone calls, and calendar alerts.

Social media is also full of complaints from users who are experiencing notification issues on iOS 17. A quick search on Twitter reveals hundreds of tweets from users who are saying that they are missing out on important notifications because of the update.

Tech news websites have also reported on the issue. For example, a recent article on 9to5Mac noted that the new notification sound in iOS 17 is quieter than the previous sound, and that some users are reporting that they are missing out on notifications as a result.

Based on this information, it seems that a significant number of iOS users are experiencing notification issues after the iOS 17 update. However, it is difficult to say exactly how many users are affected, as Apple has not released any official statistics on the issue.

Are you also as an IOS user experiencing this kind of behavior with notifications on your phone after updating to IOS 17? What should you be doing to help escalate this broken IOS 17 feature?

Go to the apple community and voice your concern AND go to the apple feedback website and report your challenge with notifications.
