If you’ve used certain Android devices, you must have noticed the haptic feedback they provide whenever a key is pressed on the virtual keyboard. While many iPhone users are not used to it, some wished that this was an added feature in iOS. Fortunately, if you’re jailbroken, you can get this functionality with the use of a new jailbreak tweak known as HapticFeedback.
Haptic feedback has always been known to provide some sense of hardware feel when the device vibrates slightly in response to touches. The newly released tweak aims to bring this feature to iOS to let users get tactile feedback when performing certain actions.
The tweak provides haptic feedback when you press the Lock button, Home button or the physical volume buttons. In addition, it enables vibration when unlocking your device or pressing keys on the virtual iOS keyboard.
Once you’ve installed HapticFeedback, head to its preferences pane in Settings to discover a myriad of options that the tweak provides.
You can enable or disable the tweak via its preferences pane and choose the actions that will invoke vibration. Once you’re done with the configurations, tap on the respring button at the bottom of the pane to restart your device and apply the changes.
HapticFeedback is a solid tweak if you’ve been craving to get a little sense of tactile feedback on your iPhone. The only issue with it is that it doesn’t support third-party keyboards so it will only work with the stock iOS keyboard or the Emoji keyboard.
You can install HapticFeedback for free from Cydia’s BigBoss repo. If you decide to give it a try, make sure to let us know what you think about it in the comments section below.
