    I've noticed the vibrate in the 6s Plus is VERY different to the 6 Plus. Has anyone else noticed this?

    Also, in the 6s Plus, you can feel as if there is a specific vibrate module in the back\centre of the device. Doesn't\didn't seem to be that way on the 6 Plus.

    From what I've learned, the 6S/6S Plus use a totally new Taptic Engine for 3D Touch and Vibration. You can actually create your own custom vibrations now in Settings/Sounds.

    So yes, the new 6S/6S Plus models use a very different technology for the vibration.

    Yeah, it feels different, but it doesn't bother me at all.

    It's the new Taptic Engine that Apple implemented. Same vibration on the Apple Watch as well.

    To be honest, I haven't really paid any attention to it enough to notice.

    I only notice it since I'm coming from a Note 5, and BlackBerry Priv.

    Agreed, much better. It's more subtle, like a tap.

    You're always able to create your own vibration patterns for alerts. Nothing new or specific to the new S-model iPhones.

    I never had the 6 Plus. But I tested the vibration with my old iPhone 5 and my 6s Plus, and they were the same. One is just bigger. But very little, if any, difference in the vibration.

    I miss a lot more all calls and messages if the phone is in my jacket pocket on vibrate. I actually thought the phone was defective at first. I guess I'm old school and miss the genuine vibrate and louder notifications volumes on my old blackberry.

    Maybe time to use the vibrate creator option, within settings. I might look into this myself...

    I've used it in the past to create custom notifications. It's really easy.

    Yes, in fact I have created some custom vibrations but the intensity, or strength remains the same. I had both the Apple leather and the Apple silicon cases. As an experiment I put it in a thinner soft shell case and now I can "sense" it on a table top at least.
