First time it happened my phone was locked sitting in my lap, nothing lite up just made the sound, 15-20min later I plugged it in to charge and it made the sound again. Nothing ever comes up in notifications just bluooop sound! It has also happened while I have been using my iPhone, while in iMessage and other apps! I have checked every app on my iPhone and  sound setting I can think of and can't figure out were it is coming from or why!!

****!! It did it again!!! So it's not Skype! The only apps I have in common with you guys are Netflix, instagram, Facebook, and life360! Maybe it's life360 it's the newest app I have out of that list, all the others I've had for long then that sound

I have been hearing the sound for about 3-4 weeks now. I do not have Skype so it's not that. But I hear the water drip noise at least 5 times a day sometimes more. Sometimes when it's locked and sometimes when I'm on the phone on Internet, messaging, even when I have been playing draw something a few times. But have no clue what it is. Been looking on Internet for a few weeks about it and just recently actually started finding other people have been experiencing the same noise! If I cant find anything in the next couple of days I'm just going to call apple. See if they know anything!! All of my notifications are off in all apps. Maybe we can list our apps to see which ones we have in common?? I know that seems like a lot to do but it's the only solution I can think of....

The weather channel, pixlromatic, instgram, find iPhone, life 360, my AT&T, redbox, Netflix, pandora, eBay, etsy addict, craigs pro+, zulily, har, Pinterest, SAMs club, gas buddy, pic collage, emoji free, scan life, shazam, draw free, wheres my water, hey tell, tango, twitter, fbook, groupon.

 

This noise bugs the crud out of me so if anyone knows or finds out please let us know!!

I'll just name the apps I have in common with you:

 

The weather channel, Life 360, MyAT&T, Redbox, Netflix, Pandora, eBay, Craigslist Free, Scanlife, shazam, draw free, twitter, and facebook.

 

My first guess (when the sound first occurred) was the weather channel app. I thought maybe it had something to do with rain coming

 

Now I just have to know what it is.

    I just noticed it today on my iPhone 4...thought I was going nuts!  I went through my notifications and found several apps that had no alert styles with Badge App Icon (off) and Sounds (on).  I went through and updated all the apps and turned off sounds that had these conditions.  No more mysterious sounds.

  • cookiemonster722 Level 1 Level 1

    Ok I turned a bunch of sounds off in notifications. We'll see if that works. I don't know thou there were never any notifications to go along with the sound...but hopefully that worked!

    If the sound is a droplet sound, check Skype. I get them on my iPad. I have installed the app but never used it, so I just deleted it. Hopefully that will take care of the random droplet sounds and hopefully that will work for you too.

    I did just get skype maybe a month ago and don't really use it... I checked and the sound was still turned on in notifications! I turned it off. Hopefully that will work!

    The exact same thing is happening to me. It's been happening for almost a week now. I do not have Skype... I've been scouring the internet looking for answers, but not many people had experienced it. But it's been happening to more and more people in the last couple days.

  • cookiemonster722 Level 1 Level 1

    So I turned the sound off in the notification center for skype and went into Skype from settings and turned sound off there as well. I haven't heard the sound today. I talked to my mom and some people in class with Skype and theirs are doing it too!!

  • transeffect Level 1 Level 1

    I don't have Skype installed

     

    Does yours sound just like this? http://soundbible.com/1126-Water-Drop.html

     

    That's how mine sounds. I don't have any water droplet sound effects downloaded or installed on my phone, though.

    If you go into your notifications and look for apps that only have a sound notification, that will probably help you.  I haven't had any sounds coming from my phone since I turned off most of the the sound notifications alerts.  I changed several but didn't think to identify which ones I modified. 

  • transeffect Level 1 Level 1

    I already checked notifications, and I have none that are sound only. All of the apps that have sound notifications also have badges and banners/alerts.

    IT IS Life360!!!

     

    As soon as I open the app, it does the water droplet sound!!! Saying it can't find my location.

     

    I think this is mystery solved for me! Thanks guys!

     

    Edit: cookiemonster722, when you mentioned Life360, I realized I updated that app recently, and it's only been recently that my phone's been making the water droplet sound. Thanks!

     

    Note: I checked notifications again, and Life360 is set to show me alerts and badges, as well as sounds. However, it only plays the water droplet sound, and gives me no other indication that anything is wrong, even though the APP IS CLOSED.

  • Thad Spreg Level 2 Level 2

    Of all the apps that others have listed as having in common the only two I have are Facebook and Life360. I've had Life360 installed for much longer than I've been hearing these annoying droplet sounds (which are the same as the SoundBible file that transeffect posted, Thanks!). But I do seem to recall a recent update to Life360 coming thru the app store, so maybe that's when this all started. I have sound alerts for Life360 off, but badges and banners are on. That shouldn't allow Life360 to send sounds to my iPad, but it seems like that's what's happening. I don't actually use Life360, so I'll delete it and see if that does the trick. I will report back in a couple of days. Mahalo to everyone who worked to point us in the right direction.
