Haptic feedback is something that many smartphone owners like to have, but for whatever reason, is only sparingly used by the native operating system for niche and specific actions. Personally, I enjoy haptic feedback in moderation, and I think that Apple has been rather skimpy on its implantation out of the box.
If you’re anything like me and wish haptic feedback occurred more frequently while performing other common actions on your iPhone, then you might come to appreciate a newly released jailbreak tweak called Haptify by iOS developer Caleb G(kWaB), as it incorporates haptic feedback into several more of iOS’ native interfaces and performable actions.
Once installed, you’ll find a dedicated preference pane in the Settings app where you can configure Haptify to your liking:
Here, you can:
- Enable or disable Haptify on demand
- Enable haptic feedback on the Lock screen
- Enable haptic feedback for your volume buttons
- Enable haptic feedback for the power button
- Enable haptic feedback for the keyboard
- Enable haptic feedback for app launching
- Configure haptic feedback strength
According to the developer, this release is still technically an early beta version of the tweak, and so bugs are to be expected. Fortunately, users who experience any issues with haptic feedback in any expected use case can message the developer for a quick resolve.
Those interested in trying Haptify can purchase it for $1.00 from the Packix repository via their favorite package manager. The tweak supports jailbroken iOS 13 iPhones, as iPads and iPod touches do not support any form of haptic feedback.
