When did the OSX boot chime come back?

Tue Oct 05, 2021 2:38 am

Today when I booted up I was quite surprised to hear the boot chime. The last time I heard that was on my G4. Usually I have my speakers right down at boot so no idea how long this has been back. When I searched, people either said about terminal commands to enable/disable it or that Apple brought it back with Big Sur but Im on Catalina.

Well the stories differ a little but the general consensus (from places like Macworld) is that Apple did away with it in 2016.

Apple says :
"Depending on which Mac and macOS you're using, you *might* hear a startup sound shortly after pressing the power button to turn on your Mac. "

Still dont know exactly what I did for it to start sounding again.
