Your phone is a communication tool, and sometimes you have to give your number out to people that you you’d never add to your contacts.
If you don’t want to get constant notifications throughout the day from people you’re not familiar with, you’ll be happy to know that you can configure your iPhone to suppress iMessage notifications from non-contacts. We’ll show you how in this tutorial.
If you’re into the haptic feedback craze and enjoy feeling the ‘buzz’ in your hand when you perform actions on your iPhone, then you’re going to love a new free jailbreak tweak for called HapticKeyboard by developer Cole Cabral.
As the name suggests, this tweak enables haptic feedback as you type on your keyboard on your iPhone.
Your iPhone is probably your number one tool for communication between yourself and your friends or family, but out of the box, every vibration you get from a text message, whether it’s an SMS or iMessage, or a phone call, vibrates exactly the same way.
In this tutorial, we’ll show you how you can create a custom vibration on your iPhone and assign it to any contact(s) you may have.
Mentioned as a side-note in today’s Nikkei report about Apple ostensibly switching to a three-year upgrade cycle for the iPhone is a brief mention of a supposed iPhone 7 enhancement that we haven’t seen detailed in prior reports and rumors: a “high-performance motor” that should enable richer tactile vibrations throughout the system.
By default, any time you set an alarm on your iPhone, it’ll vibrate when the alarm goes off. For some people, this is a good way to help get woken up, but for others it’s a waste of battery and can be completely annoying to hear that loud vibration on the night stand.
In this tutorial, intended for iPhone users only, we’ll be showing you how you can set up an alarm so that your iPhone doesn’t vibrate when it goes off.
Toggling the ringer switch on your iPhone is not enough to make it completely silent: the phone will still be quite noisy when it buzzes as you receive a notification or a call.
According to Apple, in ring mode, your iPhone plays all sounds and in silent mode it doesn’t ring or play alerts and other sound effects, but it “may still vibrate.” Thankfully, you can change this behavior with a quick toggle in Settings that’ll prevent your iPhone from vibrating when it’s silenced, here’s how.
The Taptic Engine inside your iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus has replaced tiny rotary vibrators found on prior iPhone models (iPod touches and iPads lack a vibrator motor of their own).
Its primary function, however, has remained unchanged: to provide optional vibratory alerts when a phone call or a notification comes in, depending on the state of Vibrate on Ring and Vibrate on Silent switches in Settings → Sounds & Haptcis.
Prior to iOS 9, you couldn’t turn off vibration completely for things like emergency alerts. In iOS 9, there’s a new master switch to turn off all vibration on your device.
In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to disable all vibration on your iPhone, including those for various emergency alerts, with just a few quick taps.
I rarely use ringtones with my iPhone. In fact, I can’t even remember the last time I’ve heard my ringtone, because my iPhone stays on silent mode 99% of the time.
Sometimes I find that even the motor from the vibration is too much for me, so I quickly tap the volume buttons to completely silence the phone. Calmi is a jailbreak tweak for people like me. It’s a tweak that allows you to turn the ringer/vibrate switch into a vibrate/silent switch.
Don’t you just hate it when you place your iPhone on a table, and notifications start going off? You get that annoying buzzing sound, which is the result of the vibration motor pulsating on the hard table surface. Wouldn’t it be awesome if your iPhone knew when it was laying on a flat surface, thus disabling the vibration? Well, that’s the premise behind MyVibe.
MyVibe is a relatively new jailbreak tweak that’s available for $1.99 on Cydia’s BigBoss repo. Once installed there are quite a few options that can be configured using the tweak’s preference panel. Take a look inside for a video walkthrough showcasing how to use MyVibe, and why it may be beneficial for you.
