Your iPhone can vibrate in a lot of different situations. It might vibrate because the phone is ringing, or because you have put your phone on silent. It might also vibrate when you receive certain types of notifications, or if some kind of emergency occurs.
But you may prefer that your iPhone not vibrate at all. While you can disable most of the vibration options separately, it is easy to forget one, or have difficulty locating a specific vibration setting. Fortunately there is also a setting that you can use to turn off all of the iPhone’s vibration with one switch. Our guide below will show you where to find this setting and turn it off.
