  • Apple's iOS 7 Sounds Created by Owl City's Adam Young

    The musician behind the popular project Owl City and the Electronica artist Adam Young is responsible for many of the new sounds and ringtones in iOS 7 according to the discography on the musician’s website. Alongside the top-to-bottom redesign of the visual interface in iOS 7, Jony Ive’s design team with Young’s help also reworked all the sounds in the OS as well. At the moment, it isn’t clear which sounds Young worked on, although many of the texting and ringtone sounds seem to be similar to his music.

    For those of you who didn’t know, some of Adam Young’s more well-known songs under the Owl City name include Fireflies, Good Time with Carly Rae Jepsen and When Can I See You Again? from Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph. Young began creating songs in his parent’s basement, sharing tracks on MySpace before signing with a record label and receiving commercial success. Like many other musicians, he uses a Mac and a number of different software titles including Apple’s Logic, Pro Tools and Propellerhead’s Reason.

    The news comes in shortly after voice actor Susan Bennett came forward in early October, revealing that she leant her voice to the American female version of Apple’s Siri virtual assistant.
