How to enable or disable startup sound on iPhone 14

You can give your iPhone a startup sound much like the one on a Mac.

The familiar startup sound of the Mac can now be played on your iPhone. Even if it doesn’t quite sound the same, the new iPhone 14 series has a starting sound option that can be toggled on or off. When the setting is enabled, there is a sound played every time the iPhone is turned off or started. This way you don’t have to look at the screen to see if the device is yet powered on or off.

Note: However, the functionality is restricted to the iPhones 14, 14 Plus, 14, Pro, and 14 Pro Max. You’re in for a letdown if you have been expecting to receive it with the iOS 16 upgrade on one of the older devices. These upgrades have not yet been made to the earlier models.
