A new jailbreak tweak brings vibratory feedback to iPhones when physical buttons on the device are actioned.

Haptic feedback jailbreak tweaks for the iPhone have always been one of the most popular offerings in the jailbreak community. iOS developer Sniper_GER has released a new tweak called Erie that differs from the traditional apps we've seen that offer vibratory response to touch functions.

Most haptic feedback tweaks vibrate when the screen is tapped, but with Erie, users will feel a vibration whenever a button is pressed on their device. Once installed and activated, a response will be felt when:

  • Pressing the Home Button

  • Authentication via Touch ID

  • Pressing the sleep/wake button

  • Pressing the volume buttons

Erie can be customized in the Settings app and navigating to the preference pane. Be sure to respring your device to save any changes made.

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus users already experience feedback when pressing the home button, but the response from Erie feels slightly different.

Sniper_GER says that Erie will only work on iOS devices with the Taptic Engine, however, users have reported the tweak works properly on an iPhone 6 Plus which has the vibrator motor. In theory, this tweak should work on any iPhone with a functioning vibration mechanism.

Erie is available as a free download in Cydia for all jailbroken iPhones running iOS 10 from the BigBoss repository. The developer has also made the tweak's source code available on GitHub.
