How to Turn off Haptic Feedback on iPhone

Starting with the iPhone 7 and beyond, Haptic Feedback is a common tactile way for your iPhone to respond to some gestures in the form of a small vibration. For example, on the iPhone 7, there isn't a physically pressable Home button; so Apple added Haptic Feedback to the Home button, which you feel when "pressing" the Home button even though there's not actually a physical button to be pressed. You’ll find Haptic Feedback on the iPhone 7, iPhone 8, and iPhone X. But if you prefer to turn off Haptic Feedback altogether, you can easily do so from within Settings. Here’s how to turn off Haptic Feedback on iPhone.
