Apple’s New 3D Touch to Change the Way You Use Your iPhone

6 October 2015

Seattle: We have almost passed one year since when the Force Touch was introduced on Apple Watch. The Force Touch feature on Apple Watch enabled the wearable to sense the pressure applied by the users. The users were able to press on to the screen deeply to reveal some hidden actions. If you just tap on an object, the option will be selected, but giving a Force Touch would reveal a menu of items or enable some different action to take place.

The Force Touch was later added to Macbook and now it is iPhone 6S’s turn to make use of force with its 3D Touch. The iPhone 6S is all set for Apple’s 3D Touch and has taken it a step ahead of what was introduced with Apple Watch, to apply it throughout iOS 9. For example, in the mail app of iPhone 6S, the users can make use of the 3D Touch feature to preview the mail and close it; they can open the mail fully by pressing harder on the screen.

How 3D Touch can be used?

  • On iPhone 6S, you can make use of 3D touch for app shortcuts. Just a tap on music app with a bit of pressure can quickly take you to search or Beats 1. Also, a Force Touch on the ‘phone app icon’ of your 6S brings up the list of your favorites. The 3D Touch’s pressure sensitivity can also be used by third party applications on the home screen. For instance, Facebook app allows you check into the locations or update the status. In Instagram, pressing a photo with pressure brings you the preview of the picture.
  • The use of Apple’s 3D Touch is expected to go beyond the app switcher as well. You can just swipe from the edge with a bit of force to reveal the recently opened apps. Apple also gave a demo of gaming using 3D touch at their fall event. When you are playing a game, you can now leave your finger on the screen and press down when it is time to shoot or jump. You can expect the use of 3D Touch in games with PixelToys which is yet to be launched.

Apple announced a lot more than just the 3D touch for iPhone 6S at the fall event. If you are planning to buy an iPhone, you can now get the device in silver gold, rose gold and space grey colors as well. Apple has also announced the improvement of camera, increased pixel density and faster A9 processor. Other features like screen size, physical design and TouchID fingerprint sensor are kept the same; we could see these features altered with the release of iPhone 7.
