Have you ever been in a situation where your iPhone 11 starts ringing at the most inconvenient time? Whether it’s during an important meeting or in a quiet library, it can be quite embarrassing.

Thankfully, Apple has provided a simple solution to this problem – the vibrate mode. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to put your iPhone 11 on vibrate mode.

Step 1: Locate the Ring/Silent Switch

To put your iPhone 11 on vibrate mode, you first need to locate the Ring/Silent switch. This switch is located on the left-hand side of your iPhone, just above the volume buttons.

Note: It’s important to note that not all iPhones have this physical switch. If you have an iPhone XR or later model, you can follow these steps to enable vibrate mode using the Control Center instead.

Step 2: Flip the Ring/Silent Switch

Once you have located the Ring/Silent switch, simply flip it towards the back of your device. You will know that your iPhone is on vibrate mode when a red line appears on the switch. This indicates that your device is now set to silent mode and will only vibrate when receiving calls or notifications.


  • If you want to enable sounds again, simply flip the Ring/Silent switch towards the front of your device.
  • You can also customize vibration settings for different types of notifications by going to Settings > Sounds & Haptics > Ringtone > Vibration.
  • If you don’t want your phone to vibrate at all, you can turn off vibration by going to Settings > Sounds & Haptics > Vibration and selecting “None”.

Step 3: Test the Vibrate Mode

Now that your iPhone 11 is on vibrate mode, it’s a good idea to test it to ensure that it’s working properly. Ask a friend or family member to call you or send a test message while your device is in silent mode. You should feel your iPhone vibrating, indicating that the vibrate mode is functioning as expected.

Note: Keep in mind that some applications may have their own notification settings, so even if you have enabled vibrate mode, certain apps may still play sounds or make noise. It’s a good idea to check the notification settings within each app to customize how they behave when your device is set to silent.

That’s it! You have successfully put your iPhone 11 on vibrate mode.

Now you can enjoy a quiet and discreet experience without any interruptions from loud ringtones. Remember to flip the Ring/Silent switch back when you want to enable sounds again.
