In the past couple of years, both Android and iOS took and gave features to and from one another, and that is a great thing. This resulted in a vast array of features for both the ecosystems, and this provides a seamless user experience. It is with utmost certainty that amongst the two biggest mobile OSes, iOS wins the end-user experience due to its extremely simple UI. However, iOS too allows some dope amounts of customization, but these are mostly hidden in menus.

Say you wanted to know which person has called you without even looking at the contact. The simple answer to this is to provide a different ringtone altogether to the specific contact, right? Well, there is no easier way of doing this, and you manually need to select a ringtone for each contact. But assuming there are only a handful of constant callers amongst your billion other contacts, this process won’t end up too tiresome. Anyways, below is the procedure for doing exactly the same.
