When you get an alert or a notification on your iPhone, the device can make a sound and/or vibrate to let you know.
If you often have your iPhone on silent, then you may really rely on that vibration to know that a text message or new notification has come through.
But it’s possible that you may not like the phone’s vibration, or maybe you never put your phone on silent and find the vibration to be more of a problem than an aid.
You can turn off all vibration on your iPhone by going to Settings > Accessibility > Touch > then turning off the Vibration option.
If you have searched for a way to do this before, then you likely found the “Sounds & Haptics” menu where you can customize individual types of notifications, including setting the vibration for a notification to “None.”
But even if you make that change for every option on that menu it will only go so far.

Once you complete the steps in the guide above, your iPhone isn’t going to vibrate at all. This includes any emergency alerts for earthquakes or other disasters.
If you want to keep those emergency vibrations enabled then you can go to the Settings > Sounds & Haptics menu and turn off a lot of the vibration options there. The ones that you may want to check are:
- Vibrate on Ring
- Vibrate on Silent
- Text Tone
- New Voicemail
- New Mail
- Sent Mail
- Calendar Alerts
- Reminder Alerts
- System Haptics
For the options that don’t have a switch right next to them, which includes the options under “Sounds and Vibration Patterns” you need to choose the option then select the Vibration button within that menu to adjust the vibration for that specific alert or notification type.
