    The haptic feedback in my 7 keeps disappearing. It remains on the home button and alert vibrations but in OS haptics like the buzz from 3D Touch disappears as does the little bumps etc on the pull down menus etc.

    If I restart the phone it comes back. Any ideas? I wondered if some app I'm using turns it off?!

    The problem has been present on every version of iOS 10

    I had the exact same issue. I took it to the Genius bar and told them about it, and they replaced the phone for me.

    I got my iPhone 7 a few weeks after it was launched, so I guess it was a bad batch.

    Lucky, I hate the haptic feedback and wish it could be turned off completely.

    But seriously have them check your phone.

    Happens to me too. I think its a bug in IOS10 because it happens to my parents iPhone 7 Plus's too

    I find this happening every 20 or so 3D touches on the home screen. The trouble is replicating it in store, as the majority of the time it works fine.

    I also noticed that this was happening after using Skype on my 7 Plus. I haven't used Skype in a week now - and no issues with the Taptic Engine cutting out in the last week.

    Well I tried! If I ever discover how I got mine to stop all together I will post it! ;)
    But I am pretty sure the haptic on my phone is broken but I have no plans to tell Apple. :rolleyes:
