How to Turn on iOS 18 Music Haptics

When Music Haptics is enabled, your iPhone’s Taptic Engine converts audio signals from music into tactile feedback, such as taps, textures, and refined vibrations, making it possible for you to “feel” the music.

To turn on the Music Haptics feature in iOS 18, follow these steps:

  • Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
  • Select Accessibility.
  • Find and tap on Music Haptics.
  • Toggle the switch to turn it on.

This will activate Music Haptics, allowing you to experience music through tactile feedback provided by the Taptic Engine. Keep in mind that prolonged use of Music Haptics can drain your iPhone's battery quickly.

Music Haptics Not Showing in Settings?

Many users have reported that the Music Haptics option is not visible in their Accessibility settings, even though it appears in the search results. This is a known bug in the iOS 18 beta version. Fortunately, there is a workaround to resolve this issue.

To fix the issue of the Music Haptics option not showing, try force-closing the Settings app and reopening it to see if the option appears. If that doesn’t work, reboot your iPhone. These solutions have been effective for many users experiencing this problem.
