To my knowledge, you can't manage/change this feature on iOS devices.

I've heard that it can be done on MacOS, but I'm not an expert.

If you want details, you can post your request at the proper Community here:

Mac OS & System Software

Thanks and best regards.

Many thanks for your help.

I changed it years ago on my MacPro (mid 2012), running Yosemite. I do not recall exact details, I would have to look up what I did. I was suspecting that the iOS would be different, since I could not find any reference to do so.

So be it.

Many Thanks and Best Regards,
