10 of the best ways to work 3D Touch on your iPhone 6s

What's the point of having innovation at your fingertips if you don't know how to make the most of it?

There’s no question about it. 3D Touch is the most transformational element of the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.

It can be a little puzzling at first, with most people we’ve shown the new iPhones to tapping and holding on apps instead of long pressing them (3D Touching). The key to 3D Touch is to apply pressure right from the get go. Press hard. If you merely place your finger on the screen, it will obviously not work.

Trackpad transformation

Remember when you mistyped “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” as “supercalifragilisticrxpialidocious” and had to re-enter the entire word as you couldn’t get to the precise part of your mistake? Well, you can with 3D Touch.

Just 3D Touch the keyboard and it will transform into a trackpad. Now, you can move the cursor to the exact spot where your typo takes place. Why do things the hard way when you can do them the smart way, right?

Preview camera roll

At last count, we had 12,992 photos and 580 videos in our camera roll. It can get a little little difficult to figure out which photos we want to share. We could swipe through the entire camera roll, or we could Peek into individual photos, swipe up, and then decide which ones we want to select to share. Doesn’t take a genius to figure out which way’s quicker.
