#PSA: iPhone SE Does NOT Support Haptic Feedback In Notifications By Design

If you’re about to, or perhaps have sprung for the new iPhone SE, you should know that Unlike the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, the iPhone SE is unable to expand notifications through Haptic Touch. That sounds like a bit of an edge case on first blush. But if you are coming from an iPhone that supported this functionality via Haptic Touch or the now seemingly dead 3D touch, this is going to tick you off. As it has ticked off many on this sub-Reddit.

Apparently this was done by design by Apple as confirmed by TechCrunch‘s Matthew Panzarino.

But Benjamin Mayo who is a well respected iOS developer sums it up this way:

I really don’t understand why Apple made this decision. It seems like they are creating one of their famous “gates” when they don’t need to. But there is a workaround of sorts. It’s possible to slide to the left on a notification and tap on the “View” option as a workaround for the missing ‌Haptic Touch‌ feature. Still. This seems like a major unforced error by Apple.
