Our iPhones are our devices for communicating with the world, whether it’s catching up with friends and family or chatting with others. Either way, you’re bound to bang on your little metal and glass plate a lot. And so far, the only feedback you may have had on your iOS keyboard were audible pops, although that only works if you don’t keep your iPhone on silent 24/7.

A new feature in iOS 16 lets you enable haptic feedback on the iOS keyboard, which Android devices have had for a long time. So yes, iOS is finally catching up on some aspects of the user interface. With haptic tactile feedback, you will be able to know when each keystroke is registering as there will be tactile feedback each time you press a character on the keyboard.

Here’s how to enable haptic keyboard feedback on your favorite iPhone or iPad with iOS 16.

Apple occasionally releases updates for iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, tvOS, and macOS as closed developer previews or public betas. Although betas contain new features, they also contain pre-release bugs that may prevent normal use of your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV or Mac, and are not intended for everyday use on a main device. This is why we strongly recommend that you stay away from developer previews unless you need them for software development, and use public betas with caution. If you depend on your devices, wait for the final version.

If you’ve wanted keyboard feedback without it being annoying clicks, then haptic feedback is perfect. It lets you know that every keystroke has been recorded without disturbing you or even letting anyone know you are typing. And activating it is an easy task!

  1. Launch Settings on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Faucet Sounds and Haptics.
  3. Scroll down and tap Keyboard feedback.
  4. Press the to toggle for Haptics at ON (green).
  5. Optionally, you can tap the toggle to Sound ON or OFF according to your preferences.

That’s it! Every time you type a character on the iOS keyboard, you will feel tactile feedback. The days of a physical keyboard on your smartphone are over, so this is the closest thing to it.

Getting closer to Android

Haptic touch on the keyboard is a feature I’ve wanted on the iPhone for a while. I’m glad iOS 16 finally adds it because I like having comments that won’t disturb others around me while I’m typing. This is just another feature that brings iOS closer to Android, along with lock screen customization and landscape support for Face ID.
