Although the taptic engine (the small motor in charge of creating vibrations in order to improve the tactile experience) is one of the basic elements of the iPhone since 2016, most iOS keyboards do not support it.
According to the 9to5Google site, Google today updated its Gboard application (virtual keyboard), allowing support for haptic feedback each time a key is pressed. To activate the functionality, go to Gboard settings and select ” Activate haptic feedback at each key“.
Note that this functionality is only available from iPhone 7.
While the basic iOS built-in keyboard does not offer the haptic function at all, certain third-party applications, such as Microsoft’s SwiftKey, do not fully support this functionality. For example, the user will feel a vibration when pressed for a long time to open the emoji menu.
It’s good to note that Gboard is free, unlike other apps in the App Store that offer full integration of haptic feedback.
