So on Friday I received my new 12 mini to replace my original SE. It’s a very nice device and I’ve had no problems with it so far (apart from still wondering [as I did on my old 6] which genius thought moving the power button opposite the volume buttons was a good idea). The one issue I noticed though is quite odd. As I had it set up on the old SE, the 12 mini is set to vibrate in addition to any ring tone or message alert. It does that fine. However, on the old SE that meant most time I got just a vibrate since I usually had the silent switch set to on. On the new 12 mini despite all the same settings (AFAICT), when the ringer switch is set to silent (IOW down, i.e. showing the orange marking), the phone not only vibrates, but also beeps when a text or email comes in. It doesn’t ring for phone calls, but it definitely beeps for texts, email, and even calendar alerts. Despite ringer switch set to silent! WTH?
The hardware itself must be fine because I get prompt GUI feedback when I change the switch. It already updated to the latest and greatest 14.2 after I unboxed it.
Am I missing something here or is this a bug?
