Tips and Tricks: Setting a notification for individual email accounts on iOS 6

 

Tips and Tricks

Having spent the last (many) months using a Galaxy Note 2 and Nexus 4 as my primary devices and not even touching an iPhone in all that time I’ve had to re-visit the many things needed to make an iPhone “mine” again. One of the things I absolutely loved about Android was the ability to set multiple notification sounds for my various email accounts. When I came back to iOS I needed to figure out how to separate my work notifications from my personal ones. Here’s how you can do it too:

Go to Settings > Notifications

notificationsSelect Mail

mail

Select the mail account you want to change the sound for

gmail

Finally, select the “new mail sound” and you’ll be presented with your list of notifications and ringtones. Repeat this process with all of your various email accounts and you’ll know before looking if that email is work related or not!
