Before I started using iPhone, I was an Android user. While I didn’t miss many features that Android users always rave about, I did miss some of the minor niceties, keyboard haptics being one of them. It never made sense to me why iOS didn’t allow users to enable haptics for the keyboard, considering the iPhone packs one of the best, if not the best Taptic Engines on the market. With iOS 16, Apple has finally introduced this feature. So, here is how to enable and disable keyboard haptics in iOS 16 on iPhone.

1. Launch the Settings app and scroll down to find the Sound & Haptics option. Tap to open it.
