Much has been made about the iOS 16 update and the various features it has to offer to all iphone users, such as the haptic keyboard. However, there are some features that are perhaps not as talked about as some others, among them is the direct haptic feedback tool on your native keyboard. Therefore, it is worth reviewing and explaining a little about the functions of the iPhone haptic keyboard.
Third-party haptics may offer some quality, as well as Google’s Gboard, since they also include haptic feedback. However, many people in the Apple community still prefer the native iOS keyboard. One of the clearest advantages for those who prefer the native keyboard is privacy, since third parties usually have access to keyboard entries.
