The vibration motor has to work harder to generate keystrokes in keyboard haptics, which is why they are known to consume battery life more quickly. Therefore, having the keyboard haptics turn on can consume the battery if you text a lot. However, the rate of the drain shouldn’t be high.

So, if you enjoy the haptic feedback on your iPhone keyboard, ignore your worries about battery life and continue using it as you want. The larger iPhone models, in particular, have excellent battery life.
