One of the innovations in iOS 16 is the ability to use haptic feedback with the native iOS keyboard. In the article, we tell you how to enable vibration (Enable Haptic Keyboard feedback) in the standard iPhone keyboard and why it is better to use it, and not third-party keyboards.
Third-party keyboards have long offered haptic keyboard feedback, like Google’s Gboard, but many prefer to use the native iOS virtual keyboard. One of the main reasons is privacy, as third-party keyboards often request access to track everything you type on the keyboard.
Luckily, with iOS 16, Apple added support to enable haptic feedback to the iPhone keyboard, but it’s disabled by default.
