Apple doesn't allow you to control system notifications or set a custom notification sound for installed apps. With NotiSound tweak, you can easily set custom sound notifications per app making it possible to recognize an alert by a specific sound. For rootless jailbreaks try SmartNotifications tweak with support for iOS 15 and iOS 16.

NotiSound Tweak Repository

NotiSound tweak was released as a DEB package, which can be purchased from the Havoc Store at $0.99. To access the tweak and set custom notification ringtones for your apps, you can add the NotiSound Repo to your package manager and install the tweak for iOS 13 – iOS 15.

What is NotiSound?

NotiSound tweak allows you to set a custom notification sound for all installed iOS apps separately. You can define new sound notifications for iMessages, phone calls, calendar events, FaceTime calls, and Reminders, among other things. The tweak supports only iOS 13 – iOS 15.7.1. SmartNotifications is the successor of NotiSound, with support for jailbreaks running iOS 16, and added features like enable time frame, snooze notifications, block contacts, and more.

After installation, a new dedicated preference pane is added to the Settings app from where you can configure all options to your liking. From here, configure the notification for each app. NotiSound displays a list of installed apps, and inside each, you can set a specific custom sound.

By default, the NotiSound tweak offers access to 11 custom sounds to choose from. There is Apex, Bark, Boing, Stargaze, Strum, Summit, Timba, alert, got-it-done, hasty, and percussion. What's more, you can add copy won sounds to /Library/Application Support/NotiSound.

NotiSound allows you to set sound notifications per-app basic. You can import your own audio files in formats like MP3 and M4R. After tapping on the Configure Applications cell, a list of installed apps is presented for individual configuration. Changes doesn't require respring.

When you will tap on an app, NotiSound will display a list of all available options. You can enable custom sound notification for selected app, and set custom sound from the built-in library. There is also an option to import ringtones manually, or by importing a file.

What's new

  • Added dependency for libsparkapplist.
  • Fixed a bug in Clock app (alarms) where they never fire.
  • Added support for XinaA15 Jailbreak on iOS 15.
  • Fix Preferences not showing on iOS 14.
  • Added support for Palera1n on iOS 15 up to 15.7.1.
  • Fixed notification sounds not playing in deep sleep.
  • Fix an issue when notification will not properly play.

Since version 1.2, NotiSound tweak allows you also to set custom vibration patterns for each app. If you enable this option, there is a field where you can define the number of vibrations. You can use this tweak on modern jailbreak running iOS 13, iOS 14, and Palera1n for iOS 15.

It's hard to believe the Apple is not offering this kind of feature in stock iOS. Elias Sfeir did an excellent job developing this useful tweak, and it feels like it's a native feature. The tweak works now also with XinaA15 Jailbreak running on iOS 15 – iOS 15.1.1.
