Do you want to use keyboard vibration on your iPhone 13 or iPhone 12? If yes then you’re at the right place. In this iOS guide, you’ll learn how to make the keyboard vibrate on iPhone (iOS 16).
Meanwhile, on nearly all Android phones, haptic feedback for the on-screen keyboard has long been a feature. The fact that Apple’s standard keyboard missed this fundamental feature despite having the best haptics in the business was also a huge concern for iPhone owners. As a result, to access the haptic keyboard on iOS, the majority of users were forced to utilize third-party keyboard applications like Gboard and SwiftKey.

The option to use haptic feedback with the native keyboard is one of the improvements in iOS 16 that is a little bit beneath the radar.
With the addition of this function, your iPhone will now softly vibrate as you tap the keyboard. It is a development of the feature that already allows your iPhone to produce clicking noises as you text. This is how Apple describes it:
- Keyboard haptics: Turn on keyboard haptics to feel confirmation when you type.
