    I noticed that my iPhone 7 only vibrates once when I first plug it into a power adapter. All of my previous iPhones do a double vibration when plugged into a power adapter (even the ones that run iOS 10). Is this something new?

    The 6s when on vibrate, it vibrates twice.

    The 7 when on vibrate, vibrates once.

    The iPhone 7 has a different Taptic Engine from the 6s.

    When I plug my phone in, it does a thing. I'm good with that.

    Ultimately as long as it starts charging that's basically good enough.

    Right. But the OP and others don't know the iPhone 7 actually has a much stronger and improved Taptic Engine over the 6s, which was also possible through removing the 3.5 Jack. Hence, different charging feedback features when on vibrate.

    I didn't even notice the one vibration on my 7 Plus.

    This was actually one of the first things I noticed about my iPhone 7, as I plugged it in immediately after setting it up.
    However, I assumed it was simply a subtle change, and didn't feel the need to question it.

    Me either. I guess we are not as intimate with our iPhones as some. :)

    I noticed it. Then again, I like to research different tech hardware when it comes to iPhones. It is a completely more robust Taptic Engine.
