Taptic Engine

Apple's branding of its haptic feedback first implemented in the Apple Watch, which taps the user on the wrist. The Taptic Engine functions migrated to other Apple products including the iPhone 7, which previously used a linear accelerator to create vibrations. The Taptic Engine is also used to give the illusion of a click on Mac trackpads. See haptic interface.
