The iPhone 14 product line has a new accessibility feature that lets these devices play a sound when they’re turned off and on. Here’s where to find the setting.

The setting appears limited to this newer iPhone series rather than being a feature of iOS 16. For example, it was not found on an iPhone 13 Pro. The startup and shutdown sound is designed to help blind and low-vision users quickly know when their iPhone 14 has been turned off or on.

The feature was reportedly a request from many blind and low vision users, including employees within Apple.

How to activate the Power On & Off Sounds on an iPhone 14 or iPhone 14 Pro in iOS 16

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Tap Accessibility.
  3. Under Hearing, tap on Audio/Visual.
  4. A toggle called Power On & Off Sounds can be turned on and off.
