You’ve come to the right place if you’ve been wondering why your iPhone isn’t vibrating.
We’ll walk you through various settings and troubleshooting steps to make your iPhone vibrating again. Many people put their phones on vibrate mode to avoid annoying others with incessant notification sounds and incoming calls.
In a noisy environment, enabling vibration also aids in identifying a call or an alarm. However, several iPhone owners have complained that their phones do not vibrate.
Before diving into the solutions, make sure your iPhone’s vibration motor is working properly. Toggle the Ring / Silent switch on the left side of your iPhone to do so.
If you feel a vibration while flipping it back and forth, your iPhone’s vibration motor is working properly, and you can proceed to the options listed below.
1. Turn On Vibration
The first thing you should do if your iPhone stops vibrating is to make sure the vibration is turned on. Before moving on to the other options on the list, have a look at this one. Open the Settings app on your iPhone and go to Sounds & Haptics to enable vibration. Toggle the switches next to ‘Vibrate on Ring’ and ‘Vibrate on Silent’ under Vibrate.
Now check to see if the vibration is still working.
2. Verify The Vibration Pattern
If the vibration still doesn’t work after you enable it, look at the vibration pattern you set. That’s because your iPhone will not vibrate if the vibration pattern is set to None.
Here’s how to adjust the vibration pattern on your iPhone.
- Navigate to Sound & Haptics in the Settings app. Now select Ringtone and then Vibration from the drop-down menu.
- Now you can choose a new iPhone vibration pattern.
3. Verify Your Accessibility Setting
In order for your iPhone to vibrate, you must first allow vibration in the Sounds settings and then enable vibration in the Accessibility settings. Continue reading to find out how.
- Navigate to the Accessibility option in the Settings app on your iPhone.
- Scroll down to the Vibration option and turn it on.
Check to determine if the iPhone’s vibrating feature is active.
4. Disable Do Not Disturb
Do Not Disturb is an iPhone function that fully silences your phone. When activated, it will prevent your iPhone from ringing or vibrating in response to any calls, alerts, or notifications you get. As a result, you may ensure that your iPhone’s Do Not Disturb setting is turned off.
Swipe down from the top right corner of the screen to bring up the Control Center and turn off Do Not Disturb. To turn off Do Not Disturb, click the crescent moon icon.
5. Restart Your Phone
If your iPhone still doesn’t vibrate after adjusting the aforementioned settings, try rebooting it. To restart your iPhone, press and hold the power button and then use the slider to turn it off. Wait a minute or two before turning on your iPhone again.
6. Update Your IOS
Vibration problems on iPhones can sometimes be caused by a botched iOS update or a defective installation. The good news is that Apple is notorious for issuing patches quickly. As a result, you can try updating your iPhone to the most recent version.
To check for updates, go to General in the Settings app on your iPhone. To download and install any pending updates, go to Software Update.
7. Reset Your iPhone
If none of the solutions above resolve the vibration problem, you should consider resetting your iPhone. This will restore all of your iPhone’s preferred settings, including Wi-Fi passwords and local settings. If you’ve synchronised all of your contacts, calendar, and other personal info to iCloud, everything will be OK.
