Perhaps the most significant feature Apple added to the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus is 3D Touch. The new pressure-sensitive touchscreen opens the door to exciting user interface interactions, such as peek and pop, which let you preview and open items with a simple press. There’s also support for Quick Actions, which allow you to press on a UI element and view a shortcut menu with a variety of commonly-used actions, such as “Create New Task” or “Open New Document”.
Live Photos may have been one of the most talked about features when the new iPhones made their debut. Live Photos is a very simple idea, but turns the way people see and view their photos into something a little bit more interesting. We are going to show you how to take and view your Live Photos.
iOS 9 already introduced a new way to switch between apps, but with the introduction of 3D touch, Apple decided to add one more option. With a focus on increasing multi-tasking abilities and paying detailed attention to all the ways touch could improve processes, 3D Touch on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus allows for smoother app switching.
I am sure that we have all received an email or message that we weren’t sure needed an immediate response or not. While you can preview few words of the messages, you’d have to launch the Messages or Mail app to really see what it said. With Peek and Pop, iPhone 6s and 6s Plus owners can quickly peek at Messages or emails and Pop right into the content. Let’s check it out.
Apple hails 3D Touch as, “The next generation of Multi‑Touch.” No longer are taps and swipes the main facets to a touch-screen device. 3D Touch was designed to make moving around your iPhone sharper, faster, and more intelligent than previous generations. You can now Peek to preview an email or use Quick Actions to get what you need to get done faster all with 3D Touch on iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Let’s go over how 3D Touch will help you on the Home Screen.
Live Photos was one of the features that I was most looking forward to testing out after watching the Apple Event. A simple, and not necessarily useful addition to the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus brings photos to life with a brief tap of the finger. Let’s check out exactly how to use the feature.
With 3D Touch, Apple has given us a whole new way to interact with the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, whether it’s using shortcuts from the home screen, previewing webpages and maps, or activating Live Photos. But there’s another cool 3D Touch feature you may not know about, and it turns your iPhone’s virtual keyboard into a trackpad.
