    So I don't know if this was a feature on the 6S or it came with iOS 10, but the System Haptics on my 7 Plus are pretty cool. This is especially true for spinners where it clicks the haptic engine as fast as you can spin the selector.

    Other things like sliders have a center click and pinch to zoom, etc. It's actually usable feedback in situations like when you are on a moving vehicle (tram, shuttle bus, for example) and that click gives you the snap-to setting you want.

    Anyone else find this useful?

    Can't understand why this is a iPhone 7 only feature. The iPhone 6S and 6S Plus users don't have taptic feedback with their Taptic Engine V1.

    Very cool indeed. Like when zooming in on a picture to the potion where you can't zoom in anymore, the Taptic will let you know.

    I don't even think that the iPhone 6/6+ have a haptic feedback feature

    I meant iPhone 6S and 6S Plus.

    Maybe it's coming with iOS10.1 to the 6S and 6S Plus users.

    The 6S taptic is not as precise and so will not have the same effect.

    It's precise enough. Try the stock ringtones.

    This is an iPhone 7 feature they brought it up at keynote. No update will change it. Have to think like Apple, new features for new phone:)

    You can't compare ringtone with slide the wheel in Timer.

    So when are we going to get haptic feedback when using IOS keyboard ? I love that when using friends' android devices and if they had that in iPhone 7 that would be a reason to buy.

    You can. There is a public API to program the Taptic Engine. Download Xcode and give it a try. It works great on iPhone 6S.

    That gets a 2020 iPhone 9 feature only.

    So: Whats the reason of the Taptic Engine in the 6S?

    You have paid for the Taptic Engine but you cannot get Taptic feedback because it's not precise enough. :D

    I'm still 100% sure: Taptic feedback is coming to 6S users with iOS10.1.
