I make use of Apple Reminders on my iOS 10 iPhone SE but there never is any sound when the reminder is due. Do not disturb mode is turned off but it doesn't seem to matter. Anyone else who has had this issue?
This same issue drove me mad, not to mention almost making me miss an appointment, until I found the answer by accident. There are two places where the option to set the sound for a reminder appears (no, me neither). The obvious one is:
Settings>Notifications>Reminders (allow notifications)>Sounds
Unfortunately, this is the wrong one. The right one is in:
The phone will always follow the setting in Sounds, not the one in Notifications. The same applies to calendar alerts. Sigh.
