    Is there a way to change the intensity of alert vibration when receiving a text message?
    My iPhone 7 barely vibrates 2 short times and is hardly recognized unless I am awaiting a message from someone.
    I brought to a Best Buy store and they were unaware of if this can be changed.
    Any assistance is appreciated!

    You can't change the intensity of the vibration, but the duration, it's also possible to create a new vibration. Go to Settings - Sounds - Sounds and Vibration Patterns - Text Tone - Vibration, try those available, and select a different one than the default one, or go to Custom, and create your own pattern.

    Of course, it's easier to notice vibrations with an Apple Watch. You can change the strength of the vibration for the AW on your iPhone.
    The iPhone itself doesn't have a setting like this.

    Thank you very much. I changed it to rapid. Should make me very aware of incoming texts now.
