Amazing iPhone tweak makes typing MUCH better – but you have to turn it on | The Sun

World News

YOUR iPhone just got a handy upgrade that makes typing much easier.

Apple has added haptic feedback to Apple keyboard, a much-requested feature that fans are loving.

It means whenever you touch a letter when typing out something on your iPhone, the display responds with a gentle vibration.

That vibration is a small "tap" that hits the end of your finger to let you know that you've hit a letter.

It's a bit like a more tactile version of the "click" that sounds by default when you type on Apple keyboard.

Most people turn this sound off, however, and it mutes automatically when your iPhone is on silent mode.

If you really master it, it can even allow you to type without looking at your device.

The new feature is one of several introduced on Monday with the release of iOS 16, the latest version of the iPhone operating system.

We've summed up some of the best iOS 16 additions further down the page.

How to activate iPhone haptic keyboard

Before you can try out the feature, you'll first need to download iOS 16 by heading to Settings > General > Software Update.

Haptic keyboard feedback is turned off by default, so you'll need to activate it in – you guessed it – your device settings.

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Tap Sounds & Haptics
  3. Under Keyboard Feedback toggle Sound and Haptic on.

Now, whenever you hit a letter on Apple keyboard, a click sound and haptic tap will follow.

If you don't like the sound so much, switch your phone to vibrate or silent mode.

You can do this in Settings or, on newer iPhones, by moving the alert slider on the left-hand side of your device.

What is iOS 16?

Every year, Apple rolls out a new version of its iOS software for iPhone.

This is the core operating system that powers the device, delivering Apple's apps, features and designs to your iPhone.

This year's new version is called iOS 16 and its packed with new iPhone features users have been waiting for.

This includes a new Lock Screen with widgets, stylized Portrait wallpapers, and notifications that roll up from the bottom.

Messages are also getting a major update that lets you edit or recall recently send messages, as well as recover recently deleted messages or mark conversations as unread.

Lockdown mode and Safety Check are also new to the iPhone game adding safety features that protect users from online hacking and abuse.

How to get iOS 16

To try out iOS 16 for yourself, you'll need to update your iPhone software.
