HOWTO | CREATE YOUR OWN VIBRATION PATTERNS
1 Tap out a pattern
In the same place you can assign one of Apple’s own vibration patterns, tap the Create New Vibration option below the list of them. The screen turns largely grey. Tap or hold your finger in that area to build up a pattern. It might take a minute or so of practice to get used to the sensitivity of the interaction. Don’t worry if it takes you several attempts to get a good result.
2 Choose your timings
As you lay down a pattern, a blue bar starts to run across the bottom of the screen. There’s a maximum length to vibration patterns, but you don’t have to fill it. Tap Stop at any time to keep only the duration that has passed – but bear in mind that moments of stillness can be as helpful as vibrations are in telling you what event is taking place.
3 Save and assign it
Tap Play to check whether your pattern is good enough, or tap Record to take another stab at it. When you’re happy with the result, tap Save, give your pattern a name when prompted, then tap the dialog’s Save button. Your pattern will then show up in the list headed Custom, ready to be assigned to events or even to a specific contact.
