That said, getting used to Haptic Touch, which is now everywhere, can be pretty annoying. At first, it may seem too sensitive and even downright embarrassing. When was the last time you touched the screen accidentally for a fraction of a section and you triggered something unexpected? Break this stream, right?
Fortunately, you can adjust the sensitivity of Haptic Touch to make it less boring. Although you can not completely disable the feature (Apple really wants you to use it), reducing the duration of the long press will make things easier.
And for those of you who find Haptic Touch too slow, it may be interesting to take a look at the Haptic Touch settings on your iPhone, no matter. You may have already slowed down and forgotten everything about it.
Adjust haptic tactile sensitivity
The iPhone has two sensitivity modes for Haptic Touch: fast and slow. By default, Apple sets the Haptic Touch to Fast mode, which can be too sensitive if you get used to the feature. Therefore, changing to slow mode by following the steps below may prevent accidental releases of Haptic Touch. If you have previously switched to slow mode and want to return to Quick mode, these steps should also help you.
Step 1: Open the Settings app on your iPhone. Scroll through the list of settings and press Accessibility. On the next screen, tap Touch.
2nd step: Tap the setting labeled Haptic Touch. You will then find the Haptic Touch sensitivity settings on the next screen.
Note: If your device supports 3D Touch, the Haptic Touch setting is called 3D & Haptic Touch.
Step 3: You can adjust the sensitivity of Haptic Touch using the two modes listed in the Touch Duration section. To decrease the sensitivity, press Slow. If you want to increase the speed, press Fast (if it had been set to Slow before).
Remember to press and hold the thumbnail in the Touch Time Test section to check the difference in sensitivity between the two modes. Once you have selected the sensitivity setting of your choice, go back or exit the Settings application. You can continue.
Change 3D Touch settings
On iPhone with 3D Touch support, you also have a list of additional settings with the same screen that includes the Haptic Touch Sensitivity Controls – iPhone Settings> Accessibility> Touch> 3D and Haptic Keys.
You can choose to disable 3D Touch completely. You can also adjust its sensitivity with the help of the slider provided. If you want to use only Haptic Touch, disable 3D Touch or increase the pressure required to activate it.
If you prefer to use 3D Touch instead, put Haptic Touch in slow mode so that the presence of the latter is less visible on your device. Why does not Apple offer the option to disable Haptic Touch on devices with 3D Touch, we will not know.
What about the iPad?
Although the iPad also has Haptic touch controls, essentially identical to those of the iPhone, iPadOS does not adjust its sensitivity. It is locked by default on the Slow setting, which can be irritating when you switch from one iPhone to another in Quick mode.
However, providing faster duration for iPad Haptic Touch will interfere with some multitasking gestures (for example, dragging applications out of the dock to launch a shared view). Let's hope that Apple will add some control to adjust the sensitivity to Haptic Touch actions that do not generate conflict afterwards.
Disable haptic feedback
When you perform a Haptic Touch operation, you get a satisfactory "click" through the Taptic engine built into your iPhone. However, some of you may not like it. If that is the case, you can turn it off. However, you will also end up completely disabling the vibrations of your iPhone, including those of emergency alerts. So think twice about disabling the feature.
Go to touch settings (iPhone Settings> Accessibility> Touch). At the bottom of the screen, turn off the switch next to Vibration.
This should stop all comments from Haptic Touch. Again, remember that it will also stop all other vibrations on your iPhone. If you want to go back to the previous situation, go to the Touch Settings screen, and then turn on the switch next to Vibration.
Too fast, too slow
Haptic Touch is now almost tied with 3D Touch, and adds a whole new dimension to all iOS devices. Although this may seem awkward at first, decreasing the sensitivity should allow you to progressively use this feature. And with the latest batch of iPhones having no 3D Touch feature, you'd better get used to it quickly.
