In our “tutorials” section, we regularly offer you various articles allowing you to discover or rediscover certain sometimes well-hidden functionalities of the iPhone and iPad operating system. Today, it’s a bit of a gadget feature that we’re talking about, but which may be of interest to some of you.

We will indeed show you how to create custom vibration sequences and then associate them with your favorite contacts. And we will even see that there are several ways to achieve this.

Going through the settings

To start, as often, go to the “Settings” of the iPhone. This time, it is on the “Sound and vibrations” section that you have to put your finger on it. Then, you have to go down a little until you reach the “Ringtone” line.

On the next page, you have to find the line that interests us at the very top: “Vibration”. Now we will be able to create our own sequence of vibrations. By the way, you will notice that Apple offers a sample of different vibrations. This may be enough for many, but for those who want to take it a step further, tap on “Create vibration”.

If the option to go through the settings works perfectly, it is also possible to go directly through the contacts to create and associate a new vibration. The result is the same, but this second solution is more practical when it comes to assigning the ringtone to a particular contact.

So let’s start by going to the application contacts from the iPhone. Then choose the contact card to whom you want to assign the personalized vibration and press “Edit” in the right corner of the screen. Once inside the form, look for the “Vibration” line. In the following screen, you will again find the vibrations offered by Apple, but also the possibility of creating a new ringtone. Once you have pressed “Create a new ringtone”, the principle remains the same as that seen just above.

The advantage here is that as soon as the vibration sequence created, it is possible toassign directly to the contact in question by simply selecting it from the list and clicking “OK” twice in a row.

This is enough to customize more precisely the alerts of messages or incoming calls according to the contacts, so as to know, without taking the iPhone out of your pocket, who it is.
