iOS 7 sounds were contributed by Owl City's Adam Young!

The magnificent alert sounds in IOS 7 are a blessing in disguise for most users. Looks like most of them were made by Adam Young, the founder of Own City – it’s an electronica project in U.S. that has been responsible for several record hits so far.

Adam Young confirmed yesterday that he had made a contribution to some of the sounds in the latest iOS update. He also added ‘sounds for iOS 7’ in the discography section on this site. While he did remove the addition, here is the screenshot (courtesy of 9to5mac).
