The iPhone’s vibration motor is quite powerful. Whenever there’s a ringtone, you also get a consistent vibration alert. That’s fine for ringtones but what about alarm clocks? There is no need of vibration in alarm.
There’s a way to turn vibration off in Clock app. Let’s dig out how you can turn off vibration in alarm on iPhone. Before iOS 9, there was only one method to turn off vibration in iPhone alarm. But now we have two options. Let’s start with the latest one that’s introduced in iOS 9.
How to Disable Vibration on iPhone Alarm
Step #1. Open Clock App on Your iPhone.
Step #2. Tap on Alarm from Bottom → Tap on Edit from top left corner.
Step #3. Tap on Alarm Time.
Step #4. Tap on Sound.
Step #5. Tap on Vibration → Tap on None.
So, as I said earlier, this method works in iOS 9. Now, let’s take a look at the way that we had to use in early days.
Step #1. Launch Setting.
Step #2. Tap on Sounds.
Step #3. Here you have two options 1- Vibrate on ring, 2 – Vibrate on silence. Disable both the switches.
You are done! Now, you will no longer have vibration. Of course, you can get it back by switching on the toggles again.
Yes, you will notice that this will affect the vibration during ringtones too. By disabling the vibration switches, you will neither get vibration-alerts in your ringtone nor in your alarm clock. Wish Apple had a special switch just for alarm clocks’ vibration mode.
As noted before, the iPhone has a very strong vibration motor. It has only gotten even better with thinner frames in iPhone 5 and 6. On some surfaces, the vibration results in a noisy tone that’s often annoying.
The long, loud vibration may annoy you at times. I’m thinking of your iPhone placed on a wooden desk: the vibration really creates a noisy tone on wood. Despite being useful feature for times when your iPhone is in the pocket, vibration for alarm clock does tend to disturb you making you feel uncomfortable. I hope that this little tip helps you avoid the vibration in alarm clock.
