My Favorites – Sound Recognition on your iPhone

In here, you have a whole heap of Sounds to try. My Favourites are Door Bell, Door Knock, Baby Crying, Shouting and Coughing. The idea is, let’s say you have a friend coming around to your house but don’t always hear the knock at the door. You could put your iPhone or iPad near the door and when they knock you would be notified on your iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch.

Once you turn on Sound Recognition for the first time. You can access it quickly from the Control Panel. So swipe down from the top on your device and then Tap to turn it on or off.

In your control panel you will see the new Sound Recognition button. Just tap it to turn it off and on. And then if you tap and hold you will be able to change which sounds you want your device to listen for.
