Keeping on top of VIP emails can be made even easier by ensuring you receive a specific sound or vibration alert whenever one comes through on your iPhone or iPad. That way you'll know if a new message justifies your immediate attention before you've even looked at your iOS device. Here's how to set them up.
- Launch the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
- Tap Mail in the list.
- Tap Notifications.
- Tap VIP.
- Tap Sounds.
- Choose a unique sound from the list or tap Vibration to select a special vibration. The default sound alert is Ding (Classic), so be sure to choose something different.
