Hapticle Adds iPhone 6s Taptic Engine-Like Haptic Response To All iOS 9 Devices
Apple’s introduction of 3D Touch on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus was always going to spawn a whole never wave of jailbreak tweaks uploaded to various repositories within Cydia. Developers involved in the jailbreak community have literally been chomping at the bit for an iOS 9 jailbreak to be released so that they can show off and publish the packages that not only mimic 3D Touch on older devices, but also introduce additional features that compliment Apple’s latest pressure sensitive addition to the smartphone market.
Thanks to the Pangu Team, and the release of the untethered jailbreak solution for all iOS 9 devices, those developers have gotten their wish. In time we will see plenty of these types of tweaks popping up within Cydia, but for now, one of the latest to be released goes by the name of ‘Hapticle‘, and exists to mimic the Taptic Engine of the iPhone 6s by offering haptic feedback to additional jailbreak tweaks that attempt to imitate Apple’s 3D Touch functionality offered in iOS 9 on non-iPhone 6s devices. Hapticle essentially integrates with other tweaks to enhance their experience by providing haptic feedback to the user when the tweak is interacted with.
Hapticle is quite unique in the fact that it isn’t really a standalone tweak and is pretty useless without first installing other offerings that provide 3D Touch based functionality, such as the Forcy and RevealMenu packages that we discussed earlier today, which brings Quick Actions to older iOS devices that do not carry the 3D Touch tech. Hapticle will integrate with such packages – and more in the future – to give users a sense of interaction through haptic feedback when those tweaks are interacted with and used, just like the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.
If you plan on using any of the currently available 3D Touch based tweaks, and want to add a little something additional to the experience, then it’s probably worthwhile checking out Hapticle. Some individuals using it have mentioned that the haptic feedback needs to be a little stronger or have customization abilities, but we’re sure that the package will progress over time as it gains more popularity and exposure. It is currently available directly from the developer’s private repository at repo.fortysixandtwo.com, which will need to be added to Cydia as an additional source.
