iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro are making waves thanks to a selection of innovative features, from the new Dynamic Island to satellite connectivity. But that doesn't mean Apple isn't bringing new updates to other iPhone owners, and this particular iOS 16 feature is worth turning on.

Finally, your iPhone's keyboard comes with haptic feedback. The on-screen keyboard in iOS was always wonderful to use, but bringing physical feedback to each letter, number, or emoji you touch makes typing even better. Having the sensation of a slight vibration as you text means knowing what you're pressing, and that could lead to fewer typos.

There is one disadvantage to turning on keyboard feedback, but if you're looking for some tactile feedback while typing on your iPhone, check out how to turn on the haptic keyboard on your iPhone. Plus, for more iOS 16 features you didn’t know about, we've got you covered.
