Your iPhone has white noise feature we bet you didn’t know about

Travel writer Jan Schroder shares a simple hack for iPhone users in need of a noise machine while on the go.

My husband and I stayed in a noisy hotel in NYC – thanks, rooftop bar. We found a YouTube channel with rainfall sounds for when we went to bed. Now we both have our own portable noise machine – our iPhones. If you have an iPhone 6s or newer, you have it too.

Here’s how to find it:

Settings > Accessibility > Audio Visual > Background Sounds, Choose from balance noise, bright noise, dark noise, ocean, rain or stream. 

To get there faster:

Settings > Accessibility > Accessibility Shortcut > Background Sounds.

This shortcut allows you to access the sounds with a triple click on your side button.
