recently I came across some apple developer article about playing haptic vibrations from a file. It says that you can create a special json formatted file with an extension .ahap. Inside you can code your own great unique vibration patterns. This haptic format is so rich that it can vibrate in different musical notes, make louder or quieter tick tick tick signals and many more.
Yesterday I figured out that if you import an ahap file into the "files" app, e.g. your icloud drive, you can play and feal them straight ahead! The only difference is that the play button doesn't make audio sound from the speaker, but true and unique vibrations and haptics! That's awesome!
It means that you can create and share vibrations by your favorite messenger, open it up and play it instantly!
Remember the days where your iphone could just make bzzzz vibrations in the same frequency?
Than apple released iPhone 6s with taptic engine and it started to get fealing of taps...
Than apple released iPhone 7 and the ringtones became accompanied by the synched vibration so iPhone started vibrating in rhythm.
And now we came to iOS 17! Custom haptics, custom vibrations, all are here!
I've made a small collection of ahaps on my website, hope it's legal to post.
You can try them out by visiting my collection of ahaps here
After some time, i hope i'll release a pip package for python to create your own great haptics. UPD: here's my github repo with my haptic creator written in python. You can mess around with it!
