Apple iPhone 7 May Feature Enhanced Taptic Engine

Enhanced Taptic Engine for complex vibrations could be included in Apple iPhone 7. It’s reasonable to conclude that most of Apple’s fans and analysts find themselves discussing the future of Apple’s smartphone range on an almost daily basis.

Some publications, such as the Japanese website Nikkei are attempting to look beyond the current launch and are busy making guesses about the potential high end motor which might be included in the 2017 iPhone which could improve interaction and feedback. The report is simply a suggestion for Apple to improve its future iPhone models with inclusion of an enhanced Taptic Engine that would primarily be able to create more complex tactile vibration.

In excess of this it’s up to our imagination as to what Apple could actually do with it in terms of functionality that comes with the hardware improvements. However it is easy to conclude that the new motor would introduce additional haptic feedback to the user in addition to the fact that it will allow for overall improvements to the existing 3D touch experience on compatible devices.

All these improvements made to Apple’s 2017 device will be included in its so called ‘tick-tock-tock’ refresh cycle which is about to be popularized. The Cupertino based giant plans on coming up with major upgrades every 3 years for its iPhones instead of coming up with a face lifted iPhone every 2 years. In the face of this change it is quite possible that Apple will acquaint us with the iPhone 7 this coming September and instantaneously get to work on the next generation iPhone most probably dubbed the iPhone 8.

If this does happen and the guess work regarding a full edge to edge display with no bezel with Touch ID integrated into the display does actually happen, then a new and enhanced Taptic Engine could give Apple the juice it needs to simulate a Home button using the 3D touch on the display.

Such investigation and improvement of technology could theoretically result in the required functionality for Apple to dispose of a lot of hardware based buttons on its new iPhone models. We will report more on this rumor as soon as we get our hands on new information.
