The ringtone that you set on your iPhone for an incoming call can be an important option to a lot of people, and is often one of the first adjustments that they make on a new phone. But your iPhone will also alert you to an incoming call with a vibration pattern, which will play anytime when the vibration option is turned on. This can be helpful if your phone is in your pocket.
But if you often set your phone down on a table or desk, the sound of the phone vibrating against a hard surface can be a little annoying. Fortunately you can disable the vibration setting on your iPhone so that it won’t vibrate, regardless of the mode that your phone is currently in.
