Audio notifications not working on iPhone after iOS 17 update? Badges show up but there is no sound played when a notification is triggered? Device is not Silent and Focus modes that could prevent the alerts from triggering are turned off?
Audio Notifications Not Working In iOS 17?
This issue has been reported by Alexandra (17 PB1):
“Alert sound for notification won’t play when a notification is triggered. Happens with various apps.”
We could replicate the issue. This bug only occurs when Lock Screen, Notification Center and Banner alerts are disabled for an app. If only Sounds and Badges alerts are enable, audio won’t play!

- 1. Open Settings and scroll for the app that you want to fix the notifications for.

- 3. Make sure that at least one of the Lock Screen, Notification Center or Banner options is checked.
Tip: If you want to have them least intrusive, you should select Notification Center. Thanks CabinRetreat for sharing the workaround.
