In this video, we learn how to use the ring/silent switch on your iPhone. First, you will find the switch which is on the side of the phone. This will allow you to turn your notifications on or off. Simply flick the switch until you see an orange dot, which means it's off. If you wish to receive vibration alerts, you can tap on settings, then sounds, then you can turn the vibrate section as either off or on. This is important, because if vibrate is off and the silent mode is on, you won't receive any audio notification of calls or text messages.
