Thanks for this one. Directly after updating to iOS15, my iPhone was vibrating madly. Fortunately, I discovered which one to turn off and peace reigned again. I couldn't believe how annoying this haptic feature was.

Looks like I'm the only one who doesn't mind this new feature. I could see it being especially useful for people who like to turn off the VO sounds, although I don't.

Thanks. I have no issues but I turn it off. I also havevibration off when phone is unmuted and on when mute. Nice job.

I disabled VoiceOver sounds since they annoyed me. I really like this new haptic feedback. As soon as I felt it, I knew what it was telling me. I applaud Apple for this intuitive use of haptics.

I usually turn VO sounds off due to the present bluetooth speaker volumebug, and this is quite handy.

Those rapid taps make me feel like bugs are crawling on my skin. I just disabled it. So much better.
