Instead of using the set vibration patterns Apple has available, you can create your own vibrations using simple touch gestures. Here's how:
- Open the Settings app.
- Choose Sounds & Haptics.
- Select Ringtone, Text Tone, or another alert option from the list.
- Choose "Vibration" from the very top of the screen.
- Scroll down to "Custom."
- Choose "Create New Vibration."
Choose "Play" to test out your vibration pattern, and choose "Save" to give it a name and save it. Custom vibrations are available for all of the different native alerts on your phone, including ringtones, text tone, voicemail, mail, sent mail, calendar alerts, reminder alerts, and AirDrop.
