For apps like Instagram or Snapchat, when my screen is on the lock screen and a notification shows up, there is no sound. Can I enable notification sounds for Instagram or Snapchat?

    In the settings app - have you perhaps turned off sound for Instagram in notifications? If so, and a notification arrives and is silent, then it's up to the programmer to add a sound to their app and not so much that you would tell the OS to play this sound for that app. – bmike Dec 27 '12 at 0:57
  • Is the silent switch on the side of the iPhone activated (orange)? – bassplayer7 Dec 27 '12 at 2:43
