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 return to the old notification sounds of Messenger and WhatsApp after upgrading to iOS 10

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

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

I am happy to share my experiences in the field of computers, mobile phones and operating systems, to develop web projects and to bring the most useful tutorials and advice. I like to "play" on the iPhone, MacBook Pro, iPad, AirPort Extreme and on operating systems macOS, iOS, Android and Windows.
