    Sorry if it's already posted, but my search terms were all too generic I think. Can I change the haptic feedback for different notifications? I'd like to know if an alert is for an email or a text message or whatever else it may be.

    When I have "prominent haptics" turned on (which is pretty much all the time), I get a buzz-tap for a text and a single tap for, say, an appointment reminder.

    I can't remember if other notifications are different. And, I haven't seen a more granular way to set different taps.

    As far as I'm aware this is not possible. it seems to be one setting for all. It may well be technically possible and just require a software update. If not then maybe in a future generation model they will offer it.

    Thanks for the info. I sure hope they add this ability.

    My text haptic feedback is different from other alerts. Can't explain it but I can tell the difference when I receive a text vs. any other alert...

    My mail alert's weaker than my text or Gmail alerts
