    So I really got used to the haptic feedback when locking my phone in the previous beta. Now I'm used to it and it's gone in beta 4. Is there an option to re-enable it? Or is it just gone?

    I don't believe there's an option to enable it again. Hopefully it'll surface again in the next beta or by the GM release.

    I hope so! It would be a bummer if we only ever had that feature for 2 weeks and it's gone lol

    It's possible it will return. Just like how the new keyboard (main key sound) changed in developer beta 1, reverted back in developer beta 2 and returned in developer beta 3. Then expanded on in beta 4.

    I looked and haven't been able to find it anywhere. That being said, I could easily see it as a feature that is placed in accessibility in the next few betas or have it on when the silent switch is flipped so you know when the phone is locked.

    Or basically have it tied into the existing system that follows the vibrate/silent switch along with "vibrate on ring" and "vibrate on silent" options that apply to most other sounds/alerts.

    I kind of think Apple uses a tic-toc beta syestems... i've noticed that there are certain things that seem to disappear and then reappear on every other Beta... and not just with ios10...

    So it's kind a like certain things that they are testing on this beta might not necessarily make it into the next beta but could be in the beta after that.. because they're probably building multiple versions of the beta at the same time

    That's generally how a lot of betas go. Things get turned off on purpose to focus test an area that saw changes, to eliminate cross contamination of bugs.

    Or the turned off area got too buggy under changes made elsewhere, so it's temporarily off in a build till properly fixed.

    People were complaining the vibration made them think they got a notification. It's possible it's gone, but I'd love an option to enable it too. I loved it, made the phone feel like its really being physically locked.

    At the same time over the years it's never been like that and we've all been fine, and when it's added it seems like it can cause some confusion for various people as they wouldn't be used to it while they are using to notifications and would associate it with a notification.

    Yep, and of course the other possibility...they didn't like it, and nixed it.

    True, that's definitely a possibility. I'm leaning towards the same thing what I mentioned earlier in the thread of what happened with the new keyboard sound in beta 1, out in beta 2, back in beta 3, and expanded with more new key sounds in beta 4.

    The haptic feedback will probably come back and with an option in beta 5. Purely just speculation and based off what happened with the keyboard sound.

    Seems they may be doing the same for the sudo 3D Touch on Clear All for notifications using the Pencil on the iPad Pro. In for beta 2 & 3, out currently in beta 4.

    I didn't see it mentioned in the release notes so it could be gone forever. We won't know for sure until the next beta or GM.
