The next-generation Apple iPhone may vibrate to indicte a command has been registered on its touchscreen.
Users of the current iPhone can be left unsure of whether their command has been registered or not, as there is no feedback but according to tech website Palluxo, this may be set to change on the new model, which is expected to be launched in June.
Immersion's VibeTonz uses haptic technology to offer sensory feedback, in the form of a vibration or pressure, when the touchscreen on a mobile phone is used. This ensures users know their command has been registered on the phone and is already in use in more than 10 million mobile phones including some Samsung and LG models.
Immersion's president and CEO Clent Richardson has also held prominent positions at a number of tech companies including Apple.
