Mobile phone vibration motor in the iPhone 6s application

What’s so special about the iPhone 6s Taptic Engine?

Actually iPhone 6 and Plus has begun using linear vibrating motor, and the volume of a vibration motor obvious greaten a lot, especially the iPhone 6 (6 Plus it is strange that the vibration of motor instead of smaller, probably expect six Plus battery capacity can be bigger than big), exiguous in iPhone takes so much space, seems to have few dare components in this kind of drive.

Compared to the vibrations of the iPhone 6 and 5s, the 6s is a step up.It’s often said that when a phone clicks a button on the screen, the vibration feedback is more sensitive, crisp, and “sharp.” what causes this?

Just how powerful is the Taptic Engine on the iPhone 6s?

We compare the 6s’s vibrator to a high-speed sports car, and the 5s’s vibrator to an affordable compact car.In the 0-100 acceleration, the sports car’s explosive force is enough to leave the latter far behind;And when the brakes are applied at the same time, the former brakes faster.This is also an indicator of how long it takes for the vibrating motor to get from 0% to 90%. The acceleration is the key, which means that when the user presses his finger on the screen, the vibrating motor gives the response up to the maximum amplitude, naturally the faster the better, while braking as fast as possible when he needs to stop.That’s what makes for crisp, sensitive feelings, and that’s how paranoid humans are about millisecond responses.

Linear motors have this advantage in their construction, so if you put an iPhone 6 and iPhone 5s in your left and right hands, you can clearly sense that the 5s is soft at the end of the shake and ends more slowly.The Taptic Engine on the iPhone 6s has reached new heights: according to apple, it takes at least 10 vibrations to reach full load, while the Taptic Engine can be started and stopped in just one cycle, and the “mini tap” can achieve 10ms of vibration microcontrol, which is said to be very close to “real-time feedback”.

Because apple has released so little information about the Taptic Engine, there’s no way to know its technical secrets or specific principles, but iDownloadBlog recently compared it to the iPhone 6 for how it vibrates.The main difference is that the 6s’s vibration is more elegant and subtle, while the iPhone 6 is significantly more dynamic when it vibrates.

And, more importantly, in iOS diverse message vibrate options (a lot of people may not know, the iPhone support different rhythm &vibra activation, such as heartbeat, staccato, orchestra, etc.), more iPhone 6 s, a synchronous vibration option by default, it can be almost completely synchronous vibrations and prompt rhythm, as previously mentioned need excellent vibration start-stop performance, passing the iPhone, even the iPhone 6 this has also used the linear vibration motor equipment is also do;

It could be the future of touchscreen phones

What about apple’s paranoia over a vibrating motor?This can be seen from the fact that the Apple Watch is the first to enable this Taptic Engine.In the extremely limited space of the Apple Watch, which is still teased by people to last forever, Apple also resolutely lets the Taptic Engine take up a lot of space in the space (although it is integrated with the speaker).Considering that the iPhone 6s also has a larger Taptic Engine built into it, apple does take vibration feedback seriously.

Isn’t it just a vibrating motor?Why should be so popular, but also specially took a name, printed on the LOGO.And to be honest, the iPhone 6s’ vibration experience isn’t that great. It’s not that far off from the iPhone of yore.But based on apple’s drive, it’s possible to predict the future by getting ready for a big push into tactile feedback.

The Apple Watch’s Taptic Engine is said to achieve a context-based vibration feedback — that is, different feedback depending on the actual situation — that replicating clicks, heartbeats, jolts, etc., so that others can feel it.For now, at least, the goal seems ambitious, given the difficulty of tweaking the amplitude and frequency of these complex feedbacks.

From apple’s point of view, when the screen of a phone or mobile device has reached such a level of display and touch operation, it is time to consider improving the most intuitive control experience by giving touch feedback.That’s why Forbes called the iPhone 6s an important step toward the future of the touch screen.

The word Taptic probably comes from the word “Haptic”, which means touch.In its infancy, Haptic was primarily used to simulate, and its earliest application was for pilots to sense the vibrations of a rocker;Development has been extended to remote environment simulation;Around us at the moment, maybe you think, vibration motor only when you are watching a movie at the cinema, in order not to influence the people around you and open a way to inform, but in fact it future can even extend to the screen of the application of different materials, we touch feeling is different, such as higher than eccentric rotor motor and linear vibration motor of the piezoelectric actuator, microtremor only on the screen, and its response time can be less than 2 ms.The experience may not be far away.

The characteristics of

At the beginning, the function machine is more strict to the vibration effect. The first-line brand requires the mobile phone to be placed on the plane. After the vibration is turned on, the mobile phone can rotate on the plane for the best.Smartphones are less sensitive to vibration, and touch-screen phones are more sensitive to touch.
