The fourth beta of iOS 17.2 that Apple released today adds a much-desired feature, the option to change the default notification alert.
Under Sounds & Haptics, there’s a new “Default Alerts” section that allows you to choose the sound used for all incoming notifications aside from texts, mail alerts, and calendar alerts, which already had customization options.
Apple has not previously offered an interface for tweaking the default notification sound, so this is a notable update for those who have always wanted to select a sound. All of the text tones can be used for the default notification sound.

There’s also an option to change the default haptic feedback. Apple in iOS 17 changed the haptic alert, and now it can be changed back or customized for those who were not happy with the update. Related Roundups: iOS 17, iPadOS 17Related Forums: iOS 17, iPadOS 17
