Smartphone iPhone XR which went on sale on October 26, as is known, possesses a 3D Touch. Instead of “affordable” flagship Apple has received its counterpart – the Haptic Touch. And Apple, apparently, wants to engage in the development of this function. As reported by 9to5Mac, the public version of iOS 12.1.1, which will be released in the near future will provide more functionality for Haptic Touch.

According to user reports, the first innovation associated with Haptic Touch appeared in the second beta version of iOS 12.1.1. For example, now notifications on the lock screen, you can “open” one tap and thus to view them completely. Previously, such capability was available via a swipe to the left and click “View”. Now for this purpose you can use long press.


Haptic technology is a Touch different from the 3D Touch that is the strong pressing used for extended periods. To receive haptic feedback, as before, uses the vibration motor Taptic Engine. One of the main disadvantages of technology is that this will not all features are available 3D Touch. For example, you cannot access the options application c desktop. In addition, Haptic Touch is not on the entire surface of the screen, and only a small part of it.

Recall that a minor iOS update 12.1.1 tested users since the end of October. Output update scheduled for late November — early December. The new version will focus on fixing bugs and improve optimization of all compatible devices.
