According to the company, 3D Touch “technology senses how deeply users press the display, letting them do more than ever with your apps and games.”

The feature supports Quick Actions, Peek and Pop and also pressure sensitivity in creative apps. If you’re new to iPhone, Apple Support’s YouTube channel has uploaded a new video tutorial on how to master 3D Touch on your iPhone.

Check it out below:

Apple also has support documents on the web which detail more on how to change 3D Touch sensitivity and how to use 3D Touch with VoiceOver and Zoom.

    I can’t think of another feature on iPhone as useless and unintuitive as 3D Touch.

  • FragilityG4

    I find it handy where I can use it. I feel there’s a lot more potential that has been untapped.

  • Very useful to me, especially quick replies, and turning the keyboard into a track pad.

    Perhaps you haven’t explored all it has to offer?

  • FragilityG4

    Yeah the trackpad is soooo handy!

    Woah, I was gonna crap on 3D Touch as well, but that trackpad feature, which I was unaware of until reading the comments here, is actually super awesome. So I like one thing about 3D Touch and perhaps that’s enough to warrant it.
