    I love waking up to peaceful sounds to start my day off right. Thanks to Apple's reluctance to give a "no vibration" option on their alarms, and also thanks to the 6's chainsaw of a vibration motor, it looks like I'll be startled out of sleep every morning. Sigh.

    Turn vibrate off in your sound settings before you go to sleep. I've been doing that a while myself even before the odd 6 motor.

    Sock on the table, dude.

    (Or anything soft, really. For me it's the cover on my iPad.)

    Good! Now get up and get to work, you lazy bum. iPhones don't grow on trees, it didn't you know?

    This... I use a very soft/thick mouse pad, and it absorbs all of the vibration.

    I swear, only people that buy anything Apple post threads like this.
    I've never heard of someone being startled out of sleep by a phone vibration.

    Thanks for the laugh. :D

    I was going to say that my 5s doesn't do this, but then I realized that the vibrate function is just so weak that it isn't noticeable.

    I'd rather have the stronger tactile alert that the 6 and 6 plus have, and then I'd just use something else as an alarm.

    DND is a good option as well, stops interruptions from notifications and leaves the screen off if they do come in. Can set it for a time period during the night, and let certain people call through it anyways if it is important.
