For those of you who use iOS products such as iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, it is something common to hear the email alert tone whenever the new email appears on Mail App. The sound of “ding” is so disturbing if it comes at a wrong moment, for example it sounds when you are in the middle of the meeting, you are still sleeping and many other moments that need a calm situation. Moreover if we have more than jus 1 email account on our iOS products, can you imagine, how many times do we have to hear the alert tone from these devices? It’s indeed so annoying. Well, we know that sometimes we need to update the inbox, but that repetitive sound can destruct our concentration. There are some conditions that demand us to be silent and focus to what we want to do at present.
Well, I feel the same with you, so, in this post I want to share the tutorial of how to switch off the email alert tone without switching off your iOS products (in this case is iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch) into “Silent” mode. This is particularly helpful for users with multiple Mail accounts setup on an iPhone / iPad, where turning off the alerts for one of them isn’t going to impact anything important. Though these steps below are optional, if you’re turning off the mail alert sound you will probably also want to turn off the vibration alert, otherwise your iPhone will still rumble every time a new email comes in.
Here are the steps to switch off the alert tone of your email in iOS:
1) Open your iPhone/iPod Touch or iPad, find out “Settings” menu on the screen, goes to “Notification Center” and choose “Mail”.
2) Choose the email account that you want to switch off for the alert tone.
3) Scroll it down until you find the option “Alert sound”
4) Please choose “None” to switch off the alert tone.
5) If you are about to silent the vibration alert, the steps are — Go to “Vibration” and scroll all it down and then choose “None”
Now your email alert tone will not sound anymore when the new mail comes to your inbox. Easy, right? Today, we took an important step: email no longer has the power to interrupt us when we’re doing something more important. Furthermore I want to say “Productive people learn how to work smart by minimizing the interruptions email creates by turning off email related sounds and alerts.” Enjoy your life!
