iPhone Custom Text Message Alert Sounds Come to iOS 5

iOS 5 will finally bring iPhone users the ability to customize their text message alert sounds. Yes, customize, as in your own user created text tones the same way the ringtone maker in iTunes 10 works. You’ll no longer be forced to select from the limited Apple default offerings or hear the barrage of Tri-Tone ever again, the world of audio is open to SMS alerts.

This may seem like a relatively minor feature, but it’s been long anticipated and highly desired by nearly everyone with an iPhone. Yet another reason for developers to download iOS 5 beta 3 now and for the rest of the world to be excited about the public fall release of iOS 5… just a few more months away.

Customized text tones were discovered in Beta 3 by TechCrunch, whose picture shows a generic custom .m4r ringtone file set as a text tone. Prior to this version of iOS 5, users were forced to use jailbreak tweaks to access custom SMS alert sounds.
