Erie adds haptic feedback to your iPhone’s button presses

One of the issues we see numerous within the jailbreak neighborhood are tweaks that carry haptic feedback to the iPhone, and a brand new loose unencumber known as Erie by means of iOS developer Sniper_GER follows in those footsteps.

While maximum tweaks alongside those strains carry haptic feedback by the use of display screen faucets, Erie takes a distinct manner by means of implementing haptic feedback each time you press a button on your tool.

Out of the field, Erie helps the next movements:

  • Pressing the Home Button
  • Authenticating with Touch ID
  • Pressing the sleep button
  • Pressing the quantity up/down buttons

You can configure Erie in complete from the tweak’s choice pane within the Settings app:

Here, you get the next choices:

  • Enable or disable the tweak on call for
  • Turn haptic feedback on or off for any of the movements we mentioned above
  • Enable distinguished haptics

The developer features a respring button within the choice pane so you’ll save any adjustments you are making.

Personally, I believe it’s nice how you’ll flip haptic feedback on or off on a per-button foundation. The vibrations can also be overwhelming in case you many times press the quantity up/down buttons to get the correct sound stage or use Touch ID steadily. Conversely, it really works nice with the Home and sleep buttons since you don’t use those as frequently.

If you employ an iPhone 7 or an iPhone 7 Plus, then what this looks like – you’ll get a small inkling of feedback as you press the button, and it feels equivalent (albeit now not fully an identical).

While the developer says Erie handiest works on gadgets with the Taptic Engine, I will be able to vouch for the truth that it appeared to paintings simply high-quality on my iPhone 6 Plus, which has a conventional vibrator motor as a substitute. That stated, it must paintings on any iPhone if it has a operating vibration mechanism.

Because I’ve all the time been partial to haptic feedback tweaks, I’m prone to say I really like how Erie feels. Whether or now not you experience haptic feedback will play an instrumental position in your selection to obtain Erie, however in case you do, then I like to recommend giving it a shot.

You can obtain Erie at no cost from Cydia’s BigBoss repository. The tweak works on all jailbroken iOS 10 iPhones, and the developer open-sourced the tweak on GitHub for any individual all for finding out about Erie’s internal operating mechanisms.
