I recently upgraded my iPhone 6s+ to iOS13.
Haptic Touch is getting in the way of how I use the phone. It's slower than 3D Touch, pops up and distracts me when my finger rests on the screen and provides no functionality I didn't already have.
Is the only way to get rid of Haptic Touch to restore from backup to iOS12?
Am I missing something about Haptic Touch? It seemed like a UI hack to allow 3D Touch features on budget iPhones, but for some reason was forced on everything?
For those searching on this:
"3D Touch" is used by pressing hard on the screen, e.g., in text areas, you can press hard on the keyboard and move a cursor around, pressing hard again to select words, sentences or dragging out a precise selection with only your thumb.
"Haptic Touch" is used by resting your finger on the screen and waiting until there's a vibration. E.g., the keyboard cursor can be activated by resting your thumb on the space bar then dragged around the text. You select by touching the screen with a second finger (without removing your first finger from the screen... you'll need two hands) then dragging one of your fingers to expand the selection.
Update: Tried 13.2, it's still not possible to disable only Haptic Touch in the settings menu.
