Apple Patent to Stifle Noise From iPhone’s Vibrate Mode

“Dubbed “Vibration In Portable Devices,” a patent filed today with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office details an Apple invention in which that annoying sound can be monitored and reduced.
Apple’s technology would use sensors to detect the vibrations of the phone when in vibrate mode. If the sensors determine that the sound given off by the vibration exceeds a certain level, that noise is automatically toned down. The technology could also decrease the sound and even the movement of a vibrating phone when it’s on top of a hard surface.”
