The future of 3D Touch
Right now you can use 3D touch with:
* Peek and Pop
* Opening the App Switcher on iPhone 6s, 7 and 8
Peek and Pop
With the speed of the iPhone X, this is useless. Opening and closing is probably even faster then Peek and Pop. So I would remove this.
Opening the App Switcher
With the iPhone X you can use swipes to do this, so this is useless too.
This feature is great and is the fastest way to select text. This feature should definitely remain.
I think that this is where 3D Touch should focus on, do things faster. It shouldn’t be the only option to do something, but just faster.
Example new shortcuts:
– 3D touching a link → option to add it to reminders, open, copy or share.
– 3D touching a chat → option to silence the conversation, select as read, delete conversation
What do you guys think?
