Apple released iOS 5 Beta 3 earlier today, and as usual when a new build is available, we are tracking down every cool new feature. I just found out about this new one while playing around the Settings app for my iPad.
If you go to Settings > General > Sounds and select “Text Tone,” for example, you will be offered many more tones to choose from. I’m not 100% sure how many of these tones are new. but it seems to me that iOS 5 Beta 3 gives us access to 20 more tones…
Among these tones, there are a few we had already heard before but we couldn’t manually attribute. We can now use all these tones as a ringtone, text tone, new mail tone, sent mail tone, sent tweet, calendar alert, and reminder alert.
- Choo Choo
- Ding (we already knew this one)
- News Flash
- Sherwood Forest (my favorite)
- Swoosh (we already knew this one)
- Tweet (this one was available with beta 1)
Update: So apparently these aren’t new, even though I can’t seem to find track of them on my other iDevices. At any rate, what’s new is that you can assign them to specific alerts.
How do you like these?
