Apple has a new way to touch: 3D touch explained
Unveiling of iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, re-branded the previously used on MacBook Pro 2015’s, and iWatch’s main attraction Force touch for the first time on an iPhone as 3D touch. A new way to interact with your phone, and the most intuitive way to interact by the claims made by Apple.
So far, rumors heard on the street are proving to be spot on. Case in point: the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, announced moments ago on stage by Apple, will indeed feature 3D Touch tech.“So what’s 3D Touch tech? Alike to Force Touch in the Apple Watch, it means that the touchscreens on the new iPhones will be able to tell apart between light, medium, and hard taps, allowing for a completely new layer of functionality. Apple actually demo’d a number of examples, all of which looked very compelling.For starters, 3D Touch will let you access pre-defined actions within built-in apps, including navigation to home by hard-pressing on the Apple Maps app icon, or serve as a shortcut to the selfie camera after hard-pressing the Camera app. Within E-mail, you can hard-press on a message to take a peek at the content, and you can immediately check that address that a friend just texted you on a map by just pressing. What’s more, after you’ve activated 3D Touch already, you can continue holding your finger down in order to enter full-screen instead of looking at just a preview window.”
