Did you know that you can change how quickly your smartphone responds to touch? Usually, the default setting works fine on most smartphones, but you may have to adjust the touchscreen sensitivity when your phone gets old. If you applied a new screen protector on your phone, you will need to increase the touch screen sensitivity to keep up with the delayed touch reaction. In this article, we show you the two most easy ways to change the touchscreen sensitivity on Android and iPhone.
How to change touch screen sensitivity on Android
Step 1: Open the app drawer on your phone and go to Settings.
Step 2: Go to ‘General management’, scroll down and select ‘Pointer Speed’ from the ‘Mouse/Trackpad’ section.
Step 3: Drag the slider to change the touchscreen sensitivity. Moving the slider to the left reduces the sensitivity while moving it to the right increases the touchscreen sensitivity.
Step 4: You can also increase the touch screen sensitivity by going to Settings>Display and turning the toggle bar on for ‘Touch sensitivity.’
How to change touch screen sensitivity on an iPhone
Step 1: Go to Settings, scroll down and select ‘Accessibility.’
Step 2: Select ‘Touch’ from the ‘Physical and Motor’ section.
Step 3: Select Haptic Touch.
Step 4: Choose from ‘fast’ or ‘slow’ under the touch duration options. For a better idea of how the two speeds work, use the touch duration test listed below the options.
Make your selection and go back. Your changes will be applied to the phone.
This is how you can change the touchscreen sensitivity on Android and iPhone. It is not advised that you increase the touchscreen sensitivity to its maximum limit if you are not using a screen protector. The maximum sensitivity level drains your smartphone’s battery and may register a lot of unwanted and unnecessary touches.
