How to Make iPhone Vibrate on Silent Mode

A ringing iPhone can be disruptive in several situations, like when you have to attend a meeting or want to sleep soundly. In such cases, you might need to turn on silent mode to avoid disturbing anyone. While muting calls and alerts can save you from unnecessary distractions, there’s always the risk of missing important notifications or texts. To ensure you don’t miss any essential notifications, you can enable vibration in silent mode. The feature is simple to set up, and you can customize the vibration settings based on your preferences.

The vibration setting on your iPhone is not the same as haptics, which is the use of advanced patterns of vibration and waveforms to convey information. To check if your device is enabled for haptics, navigate to ‘Settings’ and tap on ’Sounds & Haptics’. Enable the toggle button beside ’Play Haptics in Ring and Silent Mode’.

You can also enable haptics for individual alerts by tapping on the relevant option (Ringtone, Text Tone, New Voicemail, and so on). If you haven’t selected any vibration pattern for an alert, it will not vibrate even in ring or silent mode.

If you have tried all the above solutions and your phone still doesn’t vibrate on silent mode, you can try resetting all settings. Back up your data before proceeding. After that, run UltFone’s Standard Repair tool to fix corrupted system files and other problems. The tool can help you resolve the issue quickly and easily, without any risk of losing any important data.
