    I'm curious if Apple will eliminate the side vibrate switch like they did with the iPad Air 2. My guess is if they don't eliminate it now, then maybe the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus will not have it anymore. Thoughts?

    Does having the mute switch bother you or something? Personally, I hope they keep it available to use because I find it quite convenient.

    Will they eliminate it? I have no idea.

    Do I want them to? No. It's very convenient for me. I don't like the lack of this switch on my iPad Air 2.

    I don't mind it, and use it often.

    Why would they eliminate it? It makes no sense.

    I really hope they dont, when I use to switch back and forth between android and an iphone it was one of my biggest gripes. Absolutely love having the mute switch, no quicker way to switch to silent(vibrate) and very easy to check to make sure.

    I have found it useful to have the mute switch, but it doesn't need to be there and Apple could easily add it to the quick access features just like they do for wifi, airplane mode, etc.

    I do like it, it's a convenient way to turn sounds off without having to dig through other menus or setting. I hope they keep it, and I don't see any reason why they wouldn't.

    It is not likely that they will remove it since it is a phone. If you forget to silence your phone you need a quick way to shut it up.

    I do agree its useful, my work phone is an iphone and I do find it quicker to flick the mute switch, but I also just tap and mute my Android phone as well. Both are quick and easy.

    On iPads the "vibrate" isn't a vibrate...it's a lock rotation button. then you have your volume buttons under it. so i don't see why they'd get rid of it on the phone.

    I would have to agree, I do find it quicker to flick the switch when I need to, but apple is apple and they do things just for the sake of changing it. The rumors about the S model phones in the fall being .xx mm thicker and .xx mm taller has me concerned if current cases will work. Sure its a minute amount increased space, but its still an increase.

    i always got annoyed when i had a 5c cause none of my 5/5s cases would fit it. or at least if they were hard cases they wouldn't. so annoying. it's stuff like that that underlines the fact that as innovative and awesome as apple is, they're still after that cheddar.

    i think they should give everyone a credit for all the new cases they have to buy plus recoup the losses for the ones they already have that won't work now. ahhahaha.

    The switch as been around since the OG iPhone so I don't envision any scenario where Apple would remove it.

    Obviously 5s cases won't work on the 5c, its a totally different device lol. Thats what happens when you buy the "cheap" model, they don't put as much love into it, since it appears it isn't an every year thing like other iPhones.

    The rubber cases were able to work. So I just used those. I knew they wouldn't fit it's just slightly annoying.

    I used it very often. And I really hope they will not remove it. When I go for meetings in the office I usually turn mute on by side switch. I find it quite convenient cos it's not nice to mingle with phone menus in front of the office management.

    It's not going anywhere. The OP is just spreading his own personal brand of FUD.
