Force Touch on Apple iPhone 6s dubbed '3D Touch', with three pressure levels

Three dimensions of pressure, not two

Apple's going past simple Force Touch, says the latest rumours with new tech it's apparently calling a "3D Touch Display" on its iPhone 6s.

The 3D Touch means that the phones will go beyond just a tap and press, but include a deeper press, adding three dimensions of pressure. Adding a new pressure gesture would enable users to skip lengthy steps, meaning instead of clicking to a new screen or button, users could just engage in a deeper press. For instance, using the gesture to substitute for clicking on the actions button on the right of a song in the Music app.

Besides adding shortcuts in using apps, the new Force Touch would add an interesting dimension to games and is likely to work with a new Taptic Engine for providing physical feedback to users.

With all that new tech, early iPhone 6 adopters might probably feel some envy but hey, they could always just wait till next year and upgrade to the iPhone 7 instead.
