HOWTO | AS­SIGN VI­BRA­TION PAT­TERNS TO IN­DI­VID­U­ALS

Mac Format - - IMPROVE -

1 Choose a con­tact

Vi­bra­tion pat­terns can play in re­sponse to more than just broad events. They can be as­signed to play when spe­cific peo­ple call you or send you a text mes­sage. Open the Con­tacts app, tap on a con­tact’s name to see their de­tails and then tap Edit. Scroll down the list of data you can set for a per­son un­til you come to the Ring­tone and Text Tone op­tions.

2 As­sign to calls or texts

No­tice that Ring­tone and Text Tone each have Vi­bra­tion set­tings im­me­di­ately be­low them, en­abling dif­fer­ent pat­tern as­sign­ments to be set for the two events. Tap one of them, then tap either one of Ap­ple’s pat­terns or your own (or you can cre­ate a new one from here as well) to as­sign it to that event for this con­tact only. Tap Done, then Done again to save your choices.

3 Man­age cus­tom pat­terns

Vi­bra­tion pat­terns can­not be as­signed us­ing Con­tacts app in OS X or at iCloud.com, and so there are no short­cuts to as­sign them to whole groups at once. At the list of cus­tom pat­terns, you can delete one you no longer want by swip­ing left on it and tap­ping Delete. Places where that pat­tern was used will show as ‘Un­recog­nised Vi­bra­tion’ and use a de­fault one.
