If until now we had the theme ‘Opening’ as the default ringtone on all iPhones since iOS 7, Apple has introduced a new ringtone called ‘Reflection’ and it is the default one on the new iPhone X. With a few simple steps, you can not only hear it but use it on your iPhone as a ringtone even though it is not an iPhone X.
Developer Guilherme Rambo has accessed the iOS 11.1 code and has managed to extract this new ringtone . The sound gives the device a fresh air, after so many years with the theme ‘Opening’. You can hear it right here:

As a curiosity, the most popular iPhone ringtone has always been ‘Marimba’, created exclusively for the original iPhone. In iOS 7 Apple decided to change it to ‘Opening’ and now, with a new iPhone that in principle wants to dial the next 10 years of the Apple phone, we also have a new ringtone .
