When enabled, the iPhone emits a slight vibration after each keystroke as you type, providing physical confirmation that the key was pressed. The functionality is a useful addition to the iPhone, but you should keep in mind that Apple itself states that it may affect the autonomy of the device.
“Enabling touch functionality on the keyboard may affect your iPhone battery life,” Apple says in a support document. posted last week. Apple doesn’t provide additional details, so it’s not clear what this feature does for iPhone battery life. Note, however, that Low Power Mode does not disable haptic feedback, so the only option for users concerned about the potential impact on battery life is to keep the feature disabled.
Obviously any software function on the iPhone takes up some battery time, but the fact that Apple thought it was worth mentioning frankly about haptic feedback is great.
To enable Haptic Keyboard, you have to go to Settings, tap on Sounds & Haptics → Keyboard Feedback and enable Haptic. The same switch can also be used to turn off the function at any time. The feature is available on iPhone 8 and later running iOS 16 or later and uses the Taptic Engine built into the latest iPhones.
