A Revolution In Touch!

3D Touch is undeniably the most thrilling new feature in iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.

It doesn’t bring anything new to the table which you weren’t accustomed to but it just minimizes the number of steps and that lets you do what you want to do faster than ever before!

Let’s have a look at a few tips and tricks.

1

Quick Action

With 3D Touch, you can now start a Quick Action by opening an app straight from the particular section you want. Simply press down on an icon on your home screen for a pop up of options; that you can choose as a shortcut to the specific action. It also works with the iMessage, Camera, apps and Maps too.

Peek at emails like never before

Instead of tapping on each email to read it, you can now get a glimpse at it in an efficient way with 3D Touch to see if there’s anything important that needs to be read. With simply a light tap on your email, you will find the full message to appear over your inbox. You can then press harder to open the full email, swipe left to delete it, swipe right to mark it as unread, or lift your finger to return to your inbox.

Glance at a location

Now you can just soft press on the message containing an address and a popup will appear with the location. Simply press a little harder to open it in Maps and discover the location with more details or simply lift your finger to return to your message without opening the map app.

Take a quick look at photos in Camera mode

Soft press on the thumbnail image icon in the Camera app and your previous photos will come into view. You can just swipe to look at more photos. If you want to open a photo for sharing or editing, just press a little harder on any photo or simply lift your finger to go back to taking pictures.

No need to open Safari

When you receive a link to a website in a text message or email, just flippantly press on the link and the contents of the site will emerge over the message. Press a little harder to open the site in Safari, or remove your finger to go back to your message.

Sketching is fun

If you like scribbling, you will particularly like the pressure sensitivity when sketching something in the Notes app. You will observe that the line thickness changes as you apply more pressure on the display. A light touch will give you a lean line, and pressing harder will add depth to it.

Aren’t these features amazing! What do you think about them?

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
