Owl City’s Adam Young reveals himself as creator of iOS 7’s sounds

9to5Mac reports on this. I really like the new alerts and ringtones that are part of iOS 7 and I’ve actually switched back from custom tones for the first time in years.

One of the worst aspects of iOS prior to iOS 7 was the god-awful alert tones that it included. Most were simply re-hashed Mac OS X effects whilst others were the audio-skeuomorphism at its very worst.
