There are several sounds associated with text messaging from your iPhone. The first sound is the notification that you hear when you receive a new text message or iMessage. There are several default choices available to you as an iPhone owner, and there are more available for purchase.
The second text message sound that you can control are the noises that play as you type a letter on your keyboard. The iPhone calls these sounds “Keyboard Clicks” and you can disable them if you find them to be a problem. Our guide below will show you how to change both of these text message sounds on your iPhone.
