    The new Linear Actuator is perfect for enhancing the typing experience, is it possible to use the motor when typing yet? It seems to make perfect sense, but then again Apple typically don't make a lot of sense lol.

    It's a nice idea but I don't think the linear actuator is precise or efficient enough for this purpose.

    Nope. Wait for a jailbreak, then get haptic pro.

    The motor is more than capable of doing what you want, but Apple has not given us the option to do it.

    Nope. My guess is Apple is holding out until they get touch latency down to a level where the click will be truly instantaneous.

    That's disappointing, I tried it in store and it felt so much better than a standard motor. I was hoping they'd use it to make it feel like you're clicking on real keys.. I guess Samsung will just use it for the GS7 and I'll have to wait until April.

    I don't get why you'd have this motor and not use it :\
