Sometimes in the modern world there is too much noise that you just want to turn off. At the same time, complete silence also often gives us discomfort with its oppressive effect. The first 10-15 minutes alone with her is good, but then I want to dilute it with something. Psychologists say that background sounds of nature help a lot with this. Also, some of them are good during sleep, providing deeper and more sound sleep due to white noise. Not many people know, but the iPhone has a similar feature. Perhaps it is not so well distributed due to the fact that it is hidden too deep and not quite where you first want to look for it. But we found it and now we will tell you.
Background sounds in iOS 15
Hidden deep within the settings of your iOS 15 iPhone is the Background Sounds feature, which contains a range of different relaxing motifs, including rain, white noise, and ocean waves. They can be played over anything. Whether you’re listening to music, talking on the phone, or browsing podcasts, background sounds will play on top of them.
In order to test the operation of this function, you need to install iOS 15, if you have not already done so. You can check if it is supported by your phone in the settings and section “Basic” – “Software update”.
How to turn on rain or ocean noise on iPhone
As I said above, background sounds are quite well hidden in the menu iOS 15 settings and it’s hard to find them… Only those who check all the settings could find this item on their own. The search is made even more difficult by the fact that the desired item is in “Universal Access”, but even there it still needs to be searched.
Here’s how to find it. Open the menu ”Settings“And scroll down until you find”Universal access”. Now, inside this item, scroll down the menu and find “Audiovisualization”. Opening it, you will see almost from above “Background sounds”. That’s what you need.
To enable sound with default settings, simply move the slider to the “Included”. But by and large, this is only the beginning of the path and you can make many more settings by customizing them for yourself.
What background sounds are on the iPhone
- Balanced noise (mixture of white noise of high and low frequency)
- Bright noise (high frequency white noise)
- Dark noise (low frequency white noise)
- Ocean (ocean waves)
- Rain (falling drops)
- Stream (seething jets of water)
Once you select a sound, you can adjust its volume. But we must remember that the slider is not related to the main volume control of the phone. If you press the volume buttons, it will change, but the slider will remain stationary.
Below will be a setting that allows you not to interrupt the background noise when playing content. It’s up to you whether you need it or not, but the choice offered is always good. In this case, you can configure what should be the volume when playing along with content. There is even a possibility “Play Sample”. You may want to listen to music as if it was raining outside the window, in which case you can adjust the rainfall to your liking.
The most recent setting in this section relates to pausing audio playback when the phone is locked. If you do not want to “Rain” when the screen is locked, move the slider to the “Enabled” position.
How else can you use background sounds on your iPhone?
You can play a trick on one of your friends by turning on the sound, return to the “root” of the settings and give him his phone. The sound cannot be stopped by any means other than rebooting or searching for the desired item in the menu. Even knocking out the “Settings” application from memory does not solve the problem.
This feature will allow you to enjoy the sounds of nature, turn on the sound in the background for recording a podcast or blog, or just check how much white noise helps you fall asleep. Psychologists say this is useful, but not for everyone. Is that just why Apple has hidden this feature so deeply in the settings? Do you know?
