something strange crawling inside my IPhone

Forum
iOS & iPadOS

HI all
there is something weird crawling inside my IPHone and I would like to know if this can be disabled. This happen when I unlock my screen with my finger print. I prefer that voice over tells me to try placing my finger again without the crawling sensation. Its a very strange weird feeling if I feel how something crawls inside my phone. I experience the crawling sensation on my hand as I place my finger on the home button. can this crawling be disabled? I have both the IPhone5s and IPhone6s. ON the 5s, there is no crawling sensation, but I use the 6s the most of the time because its storage is bigger. I've browsed settings a couple of times carefully but cannot find a setting to disable the crawling.
Many thanks for any help.

You are probably referring to haptics, although I'd never refer to those as crawling.
You can try to disable them and see if the crawling is gone:
• go to settings>sounds and haptics>system haptics and set it to off.
• Go to settings>accessibility>voiceover>audio>sounds and haptics>haptics and turn it off.
Hope that helps.

Either that or the termites have taken up residence in there. Might want to spray that puppy down with Rade, just in case!
LOL, seriously, it probably is the haptics, as noted in the previous post.
It can be a bit strange when you are first getting used to it.

I was hoping to get a laugh outta this, thinking maybe a bug or insect somehow had gotten up inside the thing. Oh well. LOL!
