By Blind Daddy, 21 September, 2021 Forum iOS and iPadOS Hello everybody. I'm having trouble getting West Minster Chimes and Voice Clock to work in IOS 15. Is anybody else having the same problem? If so, why is that? And can it be fixed? Thanks in advance. Options Log in or register to post comments Comments Chime App I am having a similar problem with the Chime app. It went silent with the upgrade. I have it on my list of things to investigate, but haven't got there yet. I wonder if it's related to my having turned on grouped notifications. But then I also notice the sound I had when forcing a refresh in the iCatcher podcast app is gone too, so who knows. Same goes for Diii Notify Hi, Same goes for Diii notify. it used to work in iOS 14, but after updating to iOS 15, all sound notifications when silent. Same with ships Clock and Marine Bells The only thing I can think is that it has to do with the redesign of notifications. I've seen this with previous releases. That's odd. I'm using diii… That's odd. I'm using diii notify and it seems to be working fine here. The first thing to try is probably opening the app. Sometimes background notifications are weird if the app isn't running. Then I guess stuff like notification settings and focus modes. also having this problem Hello. I actually noticed this throughout the beta cycle, and hoped it would be fixed by now. I also think it has something to do with the redesigned notification system. I've subscribed to this thread in case anyone finds a solution. Chime was my app of choice, however I've tried several apps. hourly notification apps I have also tried several of them when I noticed Westminster chimes stopped working and came up empty. I tried chime, background hourly something or other, and I think that was it. Nonetheless, I already miss my hourly notifications and hope this can be sorted sooner rather than later. Same here, sadly. The weirdest thing, however, is that those apps don't work on my 12 pro max, but on the xs of a friend, they work perfectly. Voice clock doesn’t work in background I have downloaded several voice clock apps and none of them work in ios15 unless they are in the foreground (active). Worked fine in iis24 Ios14 Ios14 As I said, it's still… As I said, it's still working on my old iPad Pro with diii. Has anyone written to any developers asking about this? Played with notifications settings? Maybe played with focus mode settings? This one is working After trying many apps, I got this one to work: Hourly Bell Tower by Mona Zheng https://apps.apple.com/in/app/hourly-bell-tower/id1564141557 I suspect notifications in… I suspect notifications in iOS 15 is broken. Besides WhatsApp, messages and mail, many of the apps which i use including Chime, silently deliver notifications and do not play the usual notification tones. giving it a try Sadly, I got it up and running at 2 minutes past the hour and have to wait 58 of them to see if it works, but I'm giving this a shot. I didn't completely delete all of the apps I've tried, (they're still in the library), and I fear when this is finally fixed I'll suddenly have like 5 bells going off all at once. Oh well, then at least I have options. This app has been fixed. I think our theory on the updated notification system is correct. This app was recently updated, and is working as before. Note, you will have to turn off banners, along with show on lock screen in order to stop the popups, but it does look like developers are finally fixing their apps.https://apps.apple.com/us/app/big-ben/id301046876 Something like the Almost time I am sure now that each app must be updated to fix the notification issue. i got 2 updated apps, and will try them out, but my question now: I need something like my Old Almost time app, this app gives me an alarm before each hour, and i found it very very helpful. Let's say, 1.50, 2.50 etc, This gives me time to finish something before the end of this hour. Any alternatives here? did not want the notification on my screen I am trying the bigpin now, but, each half, i got a notofication on my screen, i do not want this, only a background notification, how can i do that? link please? Can i get a link to the app please?
