How to disable typing on a keyboard sound for AirPods?

The sounds of key clicks give you haptic feedback, a type of technology that gives you a tactile response you can physically feel when you perform an action as simple as scrolling through a picker or toggling a switch. It seeks to enhance touch gestures and interactions with your device in use but can be completely unnecessary at times. So, if you want to disable this typing on a keyboard sound for AirPods, follow these instructions.

  1. Unlock your iPhone by entering the passcode.
  2. Go to Settings.
  3. Select Sounds & Haptics.
  4. Scroll down to Keyboard Feedback.
  5. Disable Sound under Keyboard Feedback settings.
  6. Disable Haptic under Keyboard Feedback settings.

Haptic Touch can be a little annoying to work with because it requires you to hold your finger on a UI element for a longer period of time.

Should system haptics be on or off?

For some users, it’s nothing more than a battery drain. However, once you choose to disable this feature, your phone will no longer vibrate when you get a phone call or a text. So, it’s your personal choice whether to keep this feature enabled or not. However, if you are a person with no physical disability and do a lot of typing on your device, I would recommend disabling this feature.
