    The iPhone5's vibration is sort of too loud for me. Sometimes it makes the camera lens rattle a little too. Would it be possible to implement an option on how much you want the phone to vibrate? Maybe in a future software update?

    why dont you set a custom vibration?

    go into settings - general - sounds

    choose a ringtone and select your vibration option

    This is your only option as far as I can say. Set a custom vibration pattern and briefly touch 1 time on your phone and it will hardly vibrate.

    Only Apple know that answer to that question.

    Yeah i know u can tweak the vibration pattern, but i wanna tweak how much it vibrates. The iphone 5 vibrates EXTREMELY loud and it rattles the camera lens sometimes making this disgusting crackle noise. Sounds like the vibration just shatters all the inside components lol.

    Im just wondering would this be possible in just an update? Give us like numbers from like 1-5 and let us set how much we want it to vibrate. Right now the vibration is too much.

    Thanks for pointing out another option that can be found on nearly every other cell phone ever made, has been requested of the iPhone for years, and continues to be absent.

    I've never had that option on any of the phones I've owned, from a range of companies.

    me either...the vibration is performed by a motor that has weights on one side of the spindle. I've never ever seen any phone that has the ability to control the speed of this motor and therefore the intensitiy of the vibration...just the duration of the spin cycle.

    Good idea, but it doesn't seem to reduce the intensity of the motor. It's still far more harsh than the iPhone 4S, which vibrates softly even if the phone is flat on a table.

    Simple answer: nope.

    I find the iPhone 5 vibrates much more quietly than my 4 did. I always kept my 4 on vibrate and I could hear it across the room. The 5 I end up missing calls because I either don't feel it or hear it.

    It doesn't. It's a hard vibration as it is. Still reduces the time it vibrates if you do this.

    The old phone i had way before i has iphone had an option to tweak vibration. A phone made by samsung called the samsung flight 2. Im sure its not the only phone out there that has this feature.

    The only thing that bugs me about the vibration is how theres always a click right after it. Wish they would just make that autofocus stay in place, or make the phone vibrate less.

    It's not by design. If you're not happy with it take it back to the Apple store. I"ve handled a few iPhone 5's and I've seen this issue, including on mine. The vibration motor is possibly a little looser in your phone and it's causing a harsher noise. It's possible there are multiple contractors for the vibration motor and that some of them are louder than other.

    And how would they even resolve this issue? Fix it right in the store? This is my replacement phone i exchanged with at&t for a brand new one. Same issue.
