Designer’s Concept Shows How Force Touch Could Work on iPhone [VIDEO]

Apple’s next iPhone is rumoured to include Force Touch, a feature that debuted on the Apple Watch and the company’s newest MacBooks.

Designer Maximilian Keiner (via Cult of Mac) has shared a concept video of how this feature could look on the iPhone.

Here’s what he had to say about his concept:

The idea is to jump into any settings menu with a “Force Tap” on an icon, be it the Bluetooth-icon, or an App-icon.

Historically, settings has been one of the domains where Android had a UX lead over iOS. To introduce a universal interaction for improving it at this maturity-stage of the OS would be a big deal. I’d be curious what other UX-ideas on an OS-level people out there have.

Recently, we’ve seen alleged ‘iPhone 6s’ display parts leak that showcased a new sensor, which some believe to be in place to support Force Touch. Back in March, the WSJ reported Apple’s next iPhones would support Force Touch, while also introduce new colour options.

Do you want a Force Touch ‘shortcut’ for settings in iOS, or for your next iPhone for that matter?
