iPhone X Distorted Text Message Notification tone with iOS 12


Many iPhone X/8 Plus/ 7 and 6s users are facing problem after upgrading to iOS 12 that the notification tone sound is distorted/stuttering for random notification received on iPhone. The text notification received are distorted like stuck instead of playing cleanly and clearly but it doesn’t happen every time for every notification. iOS 11 never had this issue. This is annoying as RANDOMLY distorted notification tones that sound like they're breaking up while playing.  Say message tone is just a “ding”. Sometimes the message tone will play as “ding-ing-ing-ing” .

When tried to change and select and new ringtone, that also does not seems to helpful.
