How does System Haptics work on an iPhone?

When you get a hold of a new iPhone, you’ll notice that it vibrates on every tap you make on the screen. It does this because of the so-called haptic feedback that’s enabled in the system by default. So, when you perform actions involving system apps and services like touching and holding the stock camera app icon on the Home screen produces haptic feedback in a form of vibration.

While this isn’t a big deal to many iPhone owners, some aren’t comfortable having this feature on. Thus, Apple offered an option to disable or enable the haptic feedback feature 

And that’s it!
