How to Disable Haptic Feedback on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus

I have just put my hands on the brand new iPhone 7 Plus. The lightning fast speed and the powerful dual-camera have really won me over.

The new iPhone has packed in with a robust Taptic Engine which produces vibrations. Apple has allowed developers the access to the new API. As a result, they have added custom vibratory feedback for their apps as well. What if you don’t like this vibratory feedback? There is a way to turn off the haptics for system controls as well as other interactions. Here is how it works!

How to Disable Haptic Feedback on iPhone 7 and 7 Plus

  • Even if you disable haptics, the vibrations for 3D Touch as well as incoming phone calls won’t be disabled
  • If you want to manage vibratory feedback for phone calls on iPhone 7, simply open Settings → Sounds & Haptics and set it as desired

Step #1. First off, you have to launch Settings on your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus.

Step #2. Next, scroll down and tap on Sounds & Haptics.

Tap on Settings then Sounds & Haptics on iPhone

Step #3. Scroll down and toggle off the switch next to System Haptics.

That’s it!

Later if you changed your mind and want to enable the vibratory feedback, simply follow the steps mentioned above and turn on the switch next to System Haptics.

With the introduction of pressure-sensitive Home button on iPhone 7, few things like force rebooting the device or putting it on DFU Mode or even taking a screenshot have changed.

Unlike before, the 5.5-inch phablet has outsold the 4.7-inch model by a good margin. What has been the biggest highlight of the ultra-large phablet is the dual-system camera.
