Fixing the problem some people have with their iPhone 5c vibrate not working is easier than you would think. Because iPhone problems typically can be caused not only by hardware or software errors, but a mix of both, it can be difficult to understand exactly why the vibrate function within the phone isn't working. But putting a little bit of effort toward diagnosing the problem can pay off very quickly and allow you to easily fix the phone. The options discussed below will provide you with techniques on how to fix an iPhone 5c vibrate function, and what you should do if you can't figure out what's wrong:
Occasionally the issue is simply that your iPhone hasn't been set to vibrate, according to Chron. Move the ringer switch that is located near the side of your iPhone and move it from the "on" option to the "off" option repeatedly in order to make sure that your vibrate functionality works at all. If this doesn't work, you'll have to go through a series of other diagnostics. The most important thing to check is your settings. Make sure that they are set to vibrate. Obviously, a phone that isn't set to vibrate won't do that, but this can sometimes be overlooked.
If this doesn't work, you may need to restart your phone by holding the power button down for 10 seconds. That will allow you to clear out what ever temporary software configuration that may have inadvertently kept your phone from working before. If this doesn't fix the problem, you may not be looking at a software problem, but a hardware problem.
