I’m one of those people who have been holding their phone on vibration for over a decade, but you’d better know how to turn off vibration if you’re tired of it or just scared.
Many people are sensitive to the constant vibrations emitted by the phone in their pocket. For some it is a fad, for others it is a medical situation. Fortunately, with an accessibility option, Apple allows you to turn off all vibrations on the iPhone, including when it comes to national security alerts, such as those delivered by the Ro-alert system in a terrifying way.
When it comes to ringtones and other common vibration notifications, remove them from the Settings menu in the Sound & Haptics section. There, you can uncheck the first two options above so that your phone doesn’t vibrate when someone calls you or you receive a message. The options in question are called Vibrating ring mode and Vibrating silent mode.
Even if you uncheck the above options, the terminal will vibrate as aggressively as possible for emergency alerts, natural disasters or pandemic information. To turn off vibration for these great notifications, you can do it from a completely different menu. From Settings go to Accessibility and tap Touch or Touch. At the bottom of the screen you will see a check for Vibrations. Turn it off and your phone will stop vibrating regardless of the circumstances. Neither when it comes to Ro-alert, nor when someone calls you, you will no longer feel vibrations.
As an important detail, the iPhone comes bundled with a series of micro-vibrations behind the haptic response concept. These are very discreet and you can feel them when you tap an icon to move it or when you press the space key for a few moments to move the cursor in a text. You can also get rid of those in Settings in the Sounds and Haptic Response section. Just uncheck the last option at the bottom of the screen – Haptic System Answer or System Haptics.
