HOWTO | AS­SIGN VI­BRA­TION PAT­TERNS TO EVENTS

Mac Format - - IMPROVE -

1 Set when to vi­brate

Go to Set­tings > Sounds. At the top of the page, de­cide whether your iPhone should vi­brate when­ever a call is re­ceived and all sound is turned on (Vi­brate on Ring), and if it vi­brates when the Mute switch on its side is en­gaged (Vi­brate on Silent); you might leave the lat­ter off if you at­tend a lot of meet­ings and don’t want even a sub­tle vi­bra­tion to seem rude.

2 Events that can vi­brate

Fur­ther down the Sounds set­tings page is a list of events that trig­ger sound ef­fects. What isn’t im­me­di­ately clear is that th­ese items can have a vi­bra­tion pat­tern as­signed as well as – or in­stead of – a sound. Tap one and you’ll find a Vi­bra­tion set­ting; it’s above the list of avail­able sounds, so de­pend­ing on which of those is se­lected, you might have to scroll up to see it.

3 As­sign a vi­bra­tion

Tap the Vi­bra­tion set­ting and you’ll be pre­sented with stan­dard pat­terns made by Ap­ple. It’s set to None by de­fault for the ma­jor­ity of events. Tap the pat­terns in the list to try them out. You might well find that Ap­ple’s own are dis­tinc­tive enough if you only want to as­sign vi­bra­tion pat­terns to a few events. How­ever, you can be more spe­cific with pat­tern as­sign­ments.
