Everyone is aware about setting different ringtones for different contacts. But there are times when you just can't hear a ringtone. For an instance, if you are in heavy traffic or in a meeting and your iPhone is on vibrate mode. Custom ringtones won't help in any of the above instances.
This is the time when vibration alerts you if someone is calling. You'll need to look at your iPhone to check who is calling. In some situations it is not possible to pull out iPhone from our pocket, especially when you are in front of your boss!
Solution to this problem is to set a custom vibration pattern and assign it to a contact. Thus, when a person calls you, your iPhone will vibrate with your custom pattern and you'll come to know who is calling without pulling out your iPhone. Check the guide given below to set custom vibration.
