You can be alerted to new notifications on your iPhone via both sounds and vibrations. Vibrations often occur when the iPhone is in silent mode, but can also occur in situations such as emergency alerts. Vibrations can be very useful if your phone is in your pocket, or if you frequently have your phone on silent.
But you might eventually decide that you no longer wish to use the vibration feature to inform you of new notifications, and seek to turn it off completely. You can accomplish this in iOS 9 by disabling the Vibration setting that is found on the Accessibility menu. This will allow you to turn off vibration completely on your iPhone, instead of configuring the vibration setting individually for all of your notifications.
