In some situations, it is appropriate to turn your phone on vibrate and keep it quiet. For example, you might want to do so during important meetings or while watching a movie. But, there are also times when you need to be able to hear calls and messages. To help you avoid distractions, your iPhone has a silent and vibrate mode that lets you disable the ringer but still allow calls or notifications to be heard when necessary.

In this article, we will show you how to enable vibration in silent mode on your iPhone. We’ll walk you through the settings that control this feature and how to change the vibration patterns for individual alerts such as a new text, voicemail, or email. We will also discuss some additional tips that may help you get the most out of this feature.

If your iPhone is not vibrating in Silent or Do Not Disturb mode, you may need to update its software. To do so, open the Settings app and select 'Sounds & Haptics'. Then, move the toggle button next to 'Vibrate on Silent' to the On position.

Vibration is an important feature that can be used in a variety of situations to make your iPhone easier to pick up and read without making any sound. You can customize the vibrations for different types of alerts and create custom patterns to give your iPhone a unique feel when you receive notifications.
