iPhone users 'don't want to pick up the phone' after hearing new ringtones
| Last updated
iPhone users are saying they won’t be picking up their phones after hearing the new ringtones.
Personally, my phone has been on silent since about 2015, but for those of you who prefer a good, old-fashioned ringtone, you may be pleased to know that the newly launched iOS17 brings with it a host of new ones that are ‘so good’ people reckon they’ll just leave to play out.
Sharing a selection of the ringtones, which have names such as Dollop, Journey, Milky Way and Kettle, X user @ianzelbo said: “The new iOS17 ringtones are so good I don’t even wanna pick up the phone.”
And fellow iPhone users were quick to agree with one person saying: “I said the SAME thing. I personally chose Breaking.”
Another commented: “Why does Dollop sound like Icona Pop's 2013 hit featuring music sensation Charli CXC, I Love It? And Departure sounds like Owl City's Fireflies!
A third said: “I like how long they are. It’s no longer just the same two seconds on repeat. Most only play once through an entire ring with some playing twice. The haptics for all of them are also really nice.”
While someone else added: “OK I‘ve set up Dollop as my new alarm tone.”
A fifth X user pointed out: “Fireflies by Owl City > Milky Way.”
A sixth person joked: “When does the video end? I’ve been listening for a few hours now.”
Apple launched the new iOS launched earlier this month, offering a bunch of new features to users, including an updated autocorrect.
This feature has been celebrated by Apple users across the land, as the iPhone keyboard will now learn how we like to chat. Thank duck for that.
Another new feature included with iOS17 is standby mode, ideal for those who sleep with their iPhone in their bed.
Essentially, this new feature will turn your mobile device into a home hub-like assistant, as when it's charging and in landscape mode, it will display chosen widgets like the clock, calendar, photos and weather.
Interactive widgets are also coming in this update, essentially allowing users to have micro-limited versions of apps you can use right from the home screen.
Meanwhile, iOS17 will introduce customisable contact cards, while voicemails will now have live transcriptions.
As is with the majority of iPhone updates, extra measures have been taken with security, and the much-talked about mental health component on the Health App will be introduced.
This will allow users to track their mood and assess signs of anxiety and depression.
