    Not being the owner or user of such an iDevice/iPhone, but I thought Apple provided an option for such iDevices to vibrate rather than make a sound for certain times. Meetings etc... Is the feature not avalable to shut the thing up when connecting it to a charger or cable???

    Obviously not I guess.

    This reminds me of some of the reasons as to why I jailbroke my iPad 2 some years ago to get it to work as I wanted it to, rather than the way, Apple insists it would work. But I guess that is out of the question and pretty well beyond feasibility these days.

    Patrick, pretty much all of the non-Mac apple products bong when power is applied. I understand why, to signal to the user that the charge is actually connected, particularly for wireless charging for the  Watch and wireless charging iPhones. While it's not terribly critical to get the charger properly aligned, it is a good indicator that you have the  Watch puck in place, or the iPhone properly near the QI charging coils. The problem is that there isn't any way to NOT have the bong, even when you really don't want it, other than to turn off the sound completely. But the process of turning it back on could cause the iPhone to become dislodged or misaligned with the charger such than when the sound is back on it may bong if you then adjust to get it aligned again. It's basically a no-win if you want silence. Even in Accessibility there is no setting to change it to a light flash instead of the tone. Basically, the bong is there to stay, until Apple decides to allow some configuration of it.

    I like wireless charging but at least once the phone did not charge because I didn't get it placed properly on the charger. Thus I appreciate the "bong" though I can see why Jake would like to silence it. It would be nice if Apple offered a bit of control over this feature. I suspect that this behavior is handled primarilly by the hardware.

    I would think this would be an ideal thing to send back to Apple via their iOS suggestions and requests app I understand they include with the iPhone OS.

    Or is that only available via their feedback site???:
