    I have an iphone 4 which i just upgraded to ios 6. Since the upgrade my alarms vibrate in addition to whatever sound I have set. I looked at my settings in 'sounds' and 'vibrate on ring' was already off. I turned off 'vibrate on silent' as well. It seems to make no difference. Am I missing a setting somewhere, is this a bug, or is this an intended "feature" that apple has added?

    this happens to me as well. I've looked through all the settings, and there's no way to turn it off. I'm trying to figure out if it's a bug or new feature???

    I'd like to see if anyone with ios6 doesn't have their alarm go off with vibration??

    My 4s works ok.

    With Vibrate on ring = Off

    Vibrate on silent = On (Side Mute Switch = unmute)
    Vibrate on silent = off (Side Mute Switch = mute)

    I get no vibration at all , only alarm sound.

    I finally just figured it out and tested multiple times. I have iphone 5 with ios 6. Flip side switch to mute, turn vibrate on ring and vibrate on silent to off position. Also go into sounds then ringtones and make sure vibrate is set on alert(default). That does it

    In "sounds" you can change the sound and vibration pattern of the alerts. I just told it not to vibrate on calendar alerts and reminder alerts and it stopped the vibrating for the alarm clock. Not sure which of the two changed it, at work, no time to play.

    Same problem but different

    Hi, I'm having a similar problem, except opposite. Before the update, if I set my phone on vibrate with the switch on the side, my alarm wouldn't go off, but would only vibrate. I like this feature because I have roommates and morning classes so I don't want a loud alarm going off every morning waking them up, I just want it to vibrate under my pillow so I feel it and wake up, but ever since the update, the alarm tone goes off even if i put the phone on vibrate, how do i change this?

    Possible Fix for iPhone vibrating issues after ios 6 upgrade


    I'm not sure if this will work for all of you, but after my ios 6 upgrade, my vibrate also stopped working. I came to this forum looking for a solution, but didn't find one, however; while reading the various post, i decided to call my phone from my home phone, and while my iPhone rang, i played with the switch on the side that is used to place the phone on silent, by simply switching it in the on and off position a few times while letting it ring, and it starting vibrating again. I've since rebooted my iPhone and the vibrating function is still working. I hope this helps some of you.
