If you use your iPhone’s calendar to keep track of your schedule, then you probably hear a tone every time you have an event that is about to occur. This can be helpful if you are immersed in another activity and need the audio reminder that you need to get to your next appointment. However, if that tone is playing multiple times during the course of the day, then you may have reached a point where you would simply rather disable it.
Fortunately the alert sounds on your iPhone 7 are something that you can control, and it is possible to turn off the calendar alert on the iPhone 7. Our tutorial below will help you to find the calendar alert sound setting so that you can choose the option that will prevent any alert sound from playing.
