Messages App Receives Update in iOS 4.3, Shorter Tones and More Options

Posted on March 14, 2011 by

Apple updated the alert options for their Messages app for iPhone in iOS 4.3. The update includes some significantly shorter SMS text tones, clearer text tone sounds and the settings for the Messages app now allow you to have alert tones repeat up to ten times at two minute intervals. If you remember, some of the text tones were extremely long in iOS 4.2.1, to the point where they would have worked better as ringtones.

The vibration alerts for messages have also been changed. SMS messages used to have the same short vibration as the “new mail” alert. But in iOS 4.3, new SMS messages give two sharp vibratory pulses.

These aren’t huge updates, but I’m very happy with them.
