Admittedly, I’m the type of person who enjoys an ounce of haptic feedback when operating my iPhone, and for that reason, I’m always testing out the latest haptic feedback-related jailbreak tweaks as they surface.
One of the newest add-ons in this department is one called Hapticker by iOS developer Soh Satoh, and from what we can gather, it provides haptic feedback for just about anything in iOS that you would ever want it for.
Once installed, you’ll find a dedicated preference pane in the Settings app where you can configure your preferred haptic feedback options:
Here, you can:
- Toggle haptic feedback on or off on demand
- Choose your preferred haptic feedback intensity
- Enable haptic feedback when opening or closing Control Center
- Enable haptic feedback when using any of Control Center’s buttons
- Enable haptic feedback when operating the volume buttons
- Enable haptic feedback when operating the Lock button
- Enable haptic feedback when operating the Home button
- Enable haptic feedback when tapping on Home screen icons
- Enable haptic feedback when typing on the keyboard
Most of the time, I only use haptic feedback when typing on my keyboard, as it tends to make the typing experience feel slightly more natural in my hand. But I’ve come to appreciate feeling a subtle vibration when using Control Center and when launching apps, among other things.
If you, like me, enjoy haptic feedback, then you can’t go wrong with Hapticker. The tweak is available as a $0.98 purchase from the Packix repository in Cydia or Sileo and it supports all jailbroken devices running iOS 11 or 12.
