Did you know?

For the first time, Apple introduced the haptic feedback kind of feature to the iPhone with its Taptic Engine technology in iPhone 7, which enabled 3D Touch using slight vibrations to some limited action, such as tapping onto a notification. Later, Apple removed the 3D Touch with the arrival of iOS 13 and finally introduced the haptic Touch to certain elements in the user interface, for example, preview emails, move the cursor, rearrange icons, or open the camera and more.

Now, after three years, Apple has finally added this Haptic Touch feature to iPhone's keyboard with iOS 16.
