Mail Alert Stutter?

    Has anyone noticed that the new mail alert in iOS 8 stutters? When I get e-mails, it almost sounds like I'm getting TWO e-mails and the phone actually vibrates twice quickly instead of just once. On my lock screen, it only shows the one e-mail coming in, so it's not like the message is being delivered to two of my e-mail accounts at the same time.

    I have an iPhone 6 Plus. Not sure if the vibration being so long is causing a "stutter," or if this is a bug. Has anyone else had this problem?

    I have same problem with my iPhone 5S too running iOS 8. I am glad I am not the only one. :apple:

    I just went into my sound settings and changed the New Mail sound to something else, hit back, went back in and changed it back to "Ding" and it appears to be okay now. I sent a few test emails to myself both with the screen on and off and locked- no more stutter! Hopefully this sticks!

    switching to a different tone, letting one go off, then switching back worked for me.

    Same happening here, 5s. It sounds like I am getting two e-mails at the same time, however it's only one. Going to try and switch up the sound to see if it stops.

    Same happening here on my 6 plus and it was like this on my 5s gm. I will try this method to change and change it back, thanks

    Edit: It worked for me!

    I thought this was just me. I've been seeing this as well and it's been driving me crazy. I tried switching the vibration, then switching it back, but not switching the tone. I'll try that and see how it goes.
