iOS 9 iPhone Vibration Setting.

Most of us are already familiar with the personalized vibration patterns that you can assign to your iOS contacts. However, there are certain moments when you need to completely disable all vibrations on your iPhone. With devices running iOS 8 an earlier this setting can be achieved with the help of the Do Not Disturb mode. However, this implies that the alerts on your smartphone are completely silenced, meaning that you will only get a missed call or message badge notification after the caller hangs up and you decide to check your device.

iOS 9 comes with a new option that allows you to kill all vibrations, but maintain the visual and audio alerts active, if needed. Some would argue that you could tweak this to some extend from the Sounds menu by disabling the Vibrate on Silent feature. However, switching your iPhone to Silent mode, disables all audio alerts on your gadget.

Tap the knob and deactivate this setting to prevent your iPhone from vibrating.
