The physical sensation it generates is similar to how you feel when pressing keys on a real keyboard, although the feeling is slightly different, and it is easy to turn it on. Here’s how to enable it.

Step 2: Scroll down to Sound and Haptics.

Step 3: Hit Keyboard Feedback.

Step 4: Turn on the toggle switch next to the Haptic option.

That’s all. There is no need to restart your iPhone, the effect will take place immediately. From now on, every time you type a little bit of physical feedback is delivered back through your finger. You will appreciate this seemingly insignificant feature all the more if you’re typing without looking at your iPhone screen.

iPad users, on the other hand, will have to wait until the release of iPadOS 16 to get Keyboard Feedback. Apple plans to roll out the update worldwide next month.
