Many Twitter users, who have been experiencing issues on iOS 15, say their notification sound and vibration are not working.
Twitter notification: vibration and sound not working
Apparently, this issue is showing up with the Twitter app only for iOS 15 and iOS 15.1.1 users. All other apps are functioning well. Other users on public forums also affirmed the issue saying that they have been unable to hear the notification sounds on iPhone and Apple Watch.
“I and a coworker of mine haven’t had any Twitter notification sounds all morning. All settings are set to notify me, still nothing. Even on my Apple Watch, nothing. Everything else works fine.” – Reddit
“Hi, having the same problem here on my iPhone 8 Plus, Apple Watch Series 6 and my iPad Pro 10.5. All apps and devices are up to date. The Problem startet around 22 hrs yesterday evening.” – Reddit
According to the several complaints surfacing over discussion forums, it seems like people have been annoyed. Many of them tried to uninstall/reinstall the Twitter app, restart their iPhone, and even restore the phone to factory settings but all in vain. Updating the App also didn’t help fix this issue.
Waiting for the fix
A Community Specialist had responded to one of the queries earlier:
It sounds like you are not getting Twitter notification sounds. We understand how important this is to you and we are here to help.

Yet the issue is still unresolved and we’re awaiting Apple’s official statement regarding its fix and the possible reason behind the glitch.
