[Guide] Disable haptic feedback on your iPhone 7 or 7 Plus

The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus come with a superior Taptic Engine, responsible for producing vibration as you interact with your device. Furthermore, Apple now provides access to the new API for developers.

This means devs can add haptic feedback to their own apps which is nice if you like all the vibrations the new Taptic Engine can make since it’s quite sensitive and it can make your phone vibrate in more ways than one.

However, if you don’t like these vibrations, you can disable haptic feedback on your iPhone 7 or 7 Plus. Sadly the feature can’t be turned off completely. It can only be disabled for system interactions which include stock apps so your iPhone will still vibrate when you use 3D Touch or you have an incoming call for example.

How to disable haptic feedback on your iPhone 7 or 7 Plus

If you’d like for your iPhone to vibrate as little as possible, it’s still worth disabling this feature.

Open the Settings app and tap on ‘Sounds & Haptics’ (you’ll need to scroll down a bit to find this feature).

On this screen, you can customize sounds for various events that happen on your iPhone like new emails, reminders, new tweets and Facebook posts, and others. You can also toggle off Keyboard Clicks and disable the Lock Sound if you’d like to.

However, for the purpose of this guide, you will need to scroll down to the bottom of the menu and toggle off the switch next to ‘System Haptics’.

That’s pretty much it but if you ever change your mind, you can return to the same Settings screen to re-enable haptic feedback.
