How To Turn Off Vibration on iPhone

iPhone-vibrationPutting your iPhone in “silent mode” is a sensible choice for meetings, exams and other quiet occasions. However, it only takes a single insistent caller to turn your iPhone into an annoying buzzer. Not so silent now, is it? By pressing the Sleep/Wake Button, we can choose to ignore a call, but better yet, turn off vibration beforehand. We explain how to turn off vibration on iPhone.

Settings → Sounds → disable “Vibrate on Silent”

In order to make our silent mode completely silent, we can choose to switch off the vibration on a global level. Open up your “Settings” and look for the section titled “Sounds” and tap it to get to the “Sounds” settings. Now disable the toggle next to “Vibrate on Silent”. This way, when you use the sliding button on the side of your device to put it into Silent Mode, it won’t even vibrate. During calls and notifications, the screen still lights up, but there will be no acoustic notification of any kind.

By the way: Another way to temporarily shut out any disturbances is to switch on your DND (Do not Disturb) mode. Read this guide to learn about DND mode and how you can use it in various situations.

You can also disable “Vibrate on Ring”, if you prefer only sound, but this is up to your taste. For iPhone users with hearing impairments or loud workplaces turning on both options is a smart choice. You could also activate “LED Flash for Alerts” from the “Hearing” section in the Accessiblitiy settings. This way your iPhone will use the camera flash to alert to calls and messages.

“Do Not Disturb” Mode vs Silent Mode

The difference between DND-mode and the trick above lies in how your iPhone reacts. With the former, the iPhone screen will not even light up when called or messaged. By turning off the sound and the vibration, you will still get a visual indication of someone calling or texting you. Thus both methods have their validity and can be useful, depending on the situation at hand.
