The haptic feedback keyboard is one of the more intriguing new features accessible to iPhone users starting with iOS 16, which was released in September 2022. You can set it so that every time you press a key on the virtual keyboard, your iPhone will provide physical feedback, giving the impression that the keys have some give. This has been a thing on Android phones for a while, but this is the first time that iPhone users have been able to have it too.
The iPhone's haptic feedback feature is popular with some users, and for them, it seems to make typing easier or at least more enjoyable. Do you want to give it a try? It is simple to enable it.
Steps to add haptic feedback
- Open the Settings app on iPhone
- Go to “Sounds & Haptics”
- Go to “Keyboard Feedback”
- Toggle the switch for “Haptic” to the ON position
Now open any app that allows you to type, like as Notes or Messages, and begin writing on the onscreen keyboard. As you tap each key, a small amount of haptic feedback can be felt.
In the same Settings menu, you also have the option of toggling the Keyboard Sound feedback switch, which some users find annoying. They prefer to disable the keyboard click sounds. To each their own, but personally I find the sound and haptic feedback combined are a great addition and appear to help my typing.
This is a modest feature, but some iPhone users will find it to be a very pleasant adjustment. If it makes it simpler to type on the iPhone, it might even be one of the nicest aspects of iOS 16.
