Can anyone please advise how I adjust the audible charging alert on IPad 2
Hi, Brisome! Welcome to iPF!
The alert you were asking about can't be adjusted. The only thing you can do is mute your iPad, as well as turn up/down the volume, which will have an effect on the charging alert as well, afaik. It's not possible to change the sound for this alert.
Thank you for your reply. I have tried that but it has no effect on this alert.
Thank you for your interest
One other point would you know why the clock registering the postings. is set as it is?.
If you're thinking of the time that you see in this forum: I guess it depends on the time zone you set up in your iPad settings.
It might be the time zone setting for the forum. It's under the General Settings on the website; left column in the Settings page. If it is possible to change it from the iPad app I can't find it; but the website is perfectly usable via Safari.
In the app, you have to go to website view to change it.
You're right. The time displayed depends on the settings there. I just changed mine to another time zone and back.
A bit more info on the charging alert sound. As Johanna says, it's one of the system sounds and can not be individually controlled. The Mute option will mute it. Mute is either the side switch, or an icon in the Control Panel (iOS) or Multitasking bar (iOS 6 and earlier).
The Mute option is only supposed to affect system sounds, alerts, and notification, but some apps will also mute, depending on how the developer set it up.
The system/alert sounds will not adjust with the volume controls unless you have Change with Buttons turned on in Settings > Sounds. With Change with Buttons turned off the system and alert sounds will stay at the volume level set in the slider. This is handy if you want your alerts to always be loud (or quite) no matter how you have your music or games set.
With the Change with Buttons turned on, zeroing the volume will stop all sounds from the iPad, including the charger alert.
I tested all of this on my iPad 3 running iOS 7. While I remember it doing the same on iOS 5 and 6, I can't test to make sure my memory (not always reliable) is correct.
This assumes we are all talking about the same thing, the beep that happens when you plug your iPad into power.
