Are you tired of missing important calls and notifications when your iPhone is on silent? Don’t worry, there’s a solution!

By turning on the vibrate feature, you can ensure that even when your iPhone is in silent mode, you will still be alerted through gentle vibrations. In this article, we’ll guide you through the steps to turn on vibrate on silent mode on your iPhone.

Step 1: Accessing the Settings

To begin, locate and tap on the “Settings” app on your iPhone’s home screen. The Settings app is represented by a gear icon and is usually found on the first page of apps.

Step 2: Navigating to Sounds & Haptics

Once you’re in the Settings app, scroll down until you see the option for “Sounds & Haptics”. This section allows you to customize various audio and vibration settings for your iPhone.

Step 3: Enabling Vibrate on Silent

In the “Sounds & Haptics” section, locate the “Vibrate on Silent” option. By default, this option is usually turned off. Tap on the toggle switch next to it to enable vibrate when your iPhone is in silent mode.

Note: When Vibrate on Silent is enabled, your iPhone will vibrate when it’s in silent mode. However, if you also want it to vibrate during incoming calls and notifications while not in silent mode, make sure that both “Vibrate on Ring” and “Vibrate on Silent” are enabled.

Step 4: Adjusting Vibration Intensity (Optional)

If you want to customize the intensity of vibrations when receiving calls or notifications, you can do so by tapping on “Vibration” just below the “Vibrate on Silent” option. Here, you’ll find a list of various vibration patterns to choose from. Tap on one to preview how it feels.

  • Default: This is the standard vibration pattern that comes preloaded on your iPhone.
  • Heartbeat: This pattern mimics a heartbeat rhythm with gentle vibrations.
  • Rapid: If you prefer a more intense and rapid vibration, this pattern is for you.
  • Symphony: This pattern consists of a series of short and long vibrations creating a symphony-like effect.

Select the vibration pattern that suits your preference or create a custom one by tapping on “Create New Vibration”.

Step 5: Testing Vibrate on Silent

To ensure that vibrate on silent mode is working properly, switch your iPhone’s ring/silent switch to the silent position. You’ll notice that when someone calls or sends you a notification, your iPhone will vibrate instead of playing a sound.

Note: Some apps may have their own individual notification settings. To enable vibrate for specific apps in silent mode, go to “Settings” > “Notifications”, select the desired app, and enable “Sounds” or “Vibration”.

Congratulations! You’ve successfully turned on vibrate on silent mode for your iPhone. With this feature enabled, you can stay alert and never miss any important calls or notifications even when your phone is in silent mode!
