How to turn off vibration on your iPhone in 3 steps, or choose when you want your iPhone to vibrate

Hollis Johnson/Business InsiderIt’s easy to turn off vibration on your iPhone altogether with a few taps.

The iPhone’s vibration feature alerts you to incoming texts, emails, or phone calls with a vibrating sensation, rather than a ringtone that plays aloud.

While you can leave your iPhone’s volume on while also utilising vibration, the feature provides a more inconspicuous way to let you know something’s going on on your iPhone.

But how do you turn off vibration when you no longer want to use it?

If you don’t want your iPhone to vibrate when receiving calls or messages, disabling the feature only takes a few seconds and can be reenabled at any time should you wish to use it again in the future.

Here’s how to toggle vibration on and off in just a few simple steps.
