Change Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp notification sound on iPhone / iPad with iOS 10

Many owners iPhone si iPad they noticed that after the upgrade to iOS 10, something changed in sounds of notifications for Facebook Messenger si Whatsapp. After this upgrade, when we receive a message on Facebook Messenger or Whatsapp, the iPhone notifies us with the sound we were used to for Facebook application notifications.
Quite annoying to many users because Messenger does not allow personalized sounds for new message notifications.

According to Facebook Inc., this issue is not Messenger and WhatsApp, it's a bug present on iOS 10.0.1 si iOS 10.0.2, which has not yet been resolved by Apple.

How can we go back to the old notification sounds of Messenger and WhatsApp after upgrading to iOS 10

The resolution is very simplease First of all, you must make sure that you have sound notifications activated for the two applications (Settings > Notification> Messenger), and iPhone or iPad is not on Silent / Vibrate mode.

After you've made sure the sounds are on, with iPhone on, press simultan and hold the button "Sleep / Power Off" and "HomeUntil the black screen with the logo appears Apple. The Apple. Release the two buttons and release iPhone to start.
Ask a friend to send you a message on Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp to check if the sounds have returned to normal.
We have tested this method on several devices iPhone 6, and the results were positive.
