You can create custom sounds and ringtones for alerts, texts, phone calls, and more on your iPhone, but did you know the same functionality exists for vibrations?


Instead of using the set vibration patterns Apple has available, you can create your own vibrations using simple touch gestures. Here's how:
  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Choose Sounds & Haptics.
  3. Select Ringtone, Text Tone, or another alert option from the list.
  4. Choose "Vibration" from the very top of the screen.
  5. Scroll down to "Custom."
  6. Choose "Create New Vibration."
From here, you can use taps to create short vibrations and a press to create longer vibrations, varying the two to create a unique vibration pattern.

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.

Love this ability, did it years ago. I do it to the beat of Shivakamini Somakandarkram (aka Hava Nagila)...

Yes but try to create a custom ringtone without iTunes and without paying. I'm surprised they allow this without having to pay for a custom vibration.

Any suggestion of how to add a custom ringtone or alert-sound on iOS? It's so easy on Android, but I haven't figured out how to manage that using iOS.

Now try to create a ringtone from a song in iTunes without a computer. My old Motorola Razr could do it with any sound or mp3 on your phone or from an email attachment.

I set a lot of one-letter Morse vibrations years ago to the people I most often get texts from. Very handy indeed knowing which texts are worth checking. Watch makes these less useful though...

I usually downvote videos that have extremely ****** background music that does add NOTHING to the video. In this case made the video so much worse. You could have recorded the vibration sound, for example on a table.
