expo notification "no sound" on ios

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version:43
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): ios
  3. Add the appropriate “Tag” based on what Expo library you have a question on.

expo-notifications does not trigger sound when fired.
here is the snack example

this example is taken from Notifications - Expo Documentation
shouldPlaySound is set true in my example

tested this on multiple iOS devices.
still can’t confirm if this is bug on expo/react-native end or iOS

Hey @florianmatthias.code, you need to add the sound property to the scheduleNotificationAsync arg object like so:

await Notifications.scheduleNotificationAsync({
    content: {
      title: "You've got mail! 📬",
      body: 'Here is the notification body',
      data: { data: 'goes here' },
      sound: true
    trigger: { seconds: 2 },
