How to Turn Vibrate On iPhone
Vibrating alerts are powerful features that can help you stay in touch with your mobile device without disturbing others. Whether you’re in a meeting, movie theater, or quiet space, you can always have your iPhone in vibrate mode to receive important calls and notifications. In this article, we’ll show you how to turn vibrate on iPhone and set it up to suit your preferences.
Step 1: Open Settings on Your iPhone
The first step to turning on vibrate on iPhone is to go to your settings. Navigate to the “Settings” icon on your iPhone home screen and tap on it, and scroll down until you see “Sounds & Haptics”.
Step 2: Select Vibrate Option
Once you open the Sound & Haptics settings menu, you’ll see a few options for customizing your iPhone’s sound and vibrations. To turn on vibrate for incoming calls and notifications, select the “Vibrate” option.
Step 3: Customize Vibration Settings
Now that you have turned on the vibrate feature, you can customize it further. You have several options for controlling how your iPhone vibrates, including:
- Vibration intensity: Choose the strength of your iPhone’s vibration alerts. You can choose between weak, medium and strong vibrations.
- Vibration pattern: You can also customize the vibration pattern for incoming calls and notifications. You can choose between standard, heartbeat, and alert.
- Vibrate on silent: Set your phone to vibrate even when silent, so you can still receive notifications without sound.
Step 4: Test Your Vibration Settings
Before you leave the Settings menu, test your vibration setting to ensure they’re working correctly. You can do this by selecting “Ringtone” on the Sounds & Haptic menu and then tapping “Vibration” at the top of the screen. From there, you can select the vibration pattern that you have set up and check if it is working properly.
Now that you know how to turn on vibrate on your iPhone and customize your vibration settings, you can keep your device quiet in public places and still never miss another call or notification. The steps outlined above should work on all iPhones running iOS 14 and above.
