    All,

    Somewhere in the last week or so, my haptic feedback on my 2018 MacBook Pro became less pronounced. Like, someone turned the volume down on it?

    It changed around about the time one of the tech guys at work was at it, and I wonder if he did something to change a setting.

    Is there a setting to reset the intensity/power of the haptic feedback in the trackpad? Its still working. But its definitely less noticeable.

    I did a comparison with the unit of a friend who has the exact same model, and the trackpad ‘click’ feeling on hers is much, much stronger.

    Thanks,

    Nick

    Nice, that seems to be helping a bit. I still think it feels different to the way it felt before. But maybe I just need more time to get used to the new setting. Certainly an improvement tho. Thanks!

    Thanks. After a little while using it, it seems there is still an issue. Certainly your suggestion helped, but it to me there is still a quite tangible difference between mine and my friends (who's haptic settings are 'medium').

    The Taptic Engine might be failing, the battery might have swollen.

    Take it to Apple.

    Thanks all. I'll look into that, for sure.

    Interestingly, tonight it seems to be working again.

    Have you tried the old bag of tricks, I.e. SMC/PRAM reset?

    I had it feel soft a couple of times, almost as though it was being buffered, but doing that seemed to bring it back.

    It seems to be working great now. Not sure what the hell was going on. Incidentally, did do those things. But hard to say for sure if they had helped or not. Weird... something to keep an eye on
