Apple’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are the company’s most successful iPhone launch, with over 13 million sold in its first weekend of sales. Customers are now flooding online forums with videos and reports of major issues with the smartphone and phablet. Fix 3D touch on iPhone 6S not working!!
When Apple introduced 3D Touch with the iPhone 6s, I was impressed by what a great job the company did in implementing the feature. The careful detection of forceful presses on the screen, combined with feedback from the Taptic Engine, meant that I could activate 3D Touch when I wanted to, and I’d know when it happened.
Unfortunately, after six months of using an iPhone 6s, I’m afraid that I’ve completely stopped using 3D Touch, to the point where I forget it’s there. My opinion about how brilliantly implemented this feature is hasn’t changed a bit, but I feel like Apple needs to rethink the meaning of the 3D Touch in iOS 10 for it to be a more useful feature.
I should be clear: I know that some people use 3D Touch, and like it. Those people aren’t monsters. But I’ve also talked to a lot of people who have been, like me, left cold by the feature, abandoning it after the novelty has worn off. This is a cool feature and it should be more useful.
One place where I feel like 3D Touch is executed well is the Quick Launch menu that appears on individual apps. This is an entirely new feature that makes the Home screen more useful than ever before. But it’s extremely limited, with just a few options. I’d like for it to be more dynamic. Imagine being able to 3D Touch on the MLB At Bat icon to see your favorite team’s current score and jump straight to audio or video of the game.
Adjust 3D Touch sensitivity:
3D Touch works by recognizing the pressure of your touch. You can follow these instructions to learn how to adjust the pressure for 3D Touch transitions.
Using 3D Touch with third-party apps:
Third-party apps have to support 3D Touch for Quick Actions and Peek and Pop features to work. You can check the App Store description of the app you’re using to see if it supports 3D Touch. Remember, even if an app does support 3D Touch it may not support all the features.
Not All Apps Are Capable of 3D Touch
That’s true. Not all apps will be running through 3D Touch in your respective iPhone. Although, 3D touch can be used to do different things using Stock or in-built apps, but some third party apps may not provide 3D Touch facility. The following Stoke apps will run 3D Touch system,
- App Store
- Find My Friends
- Game Center
- iTunes Store
- Voice Memos
Some third party apps like Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter etc. work with 3D Touch. However, if you are trying to get 3D Touch in other apps, make sure it has the compatibility. You can also contact with the developer of that to know the ETA.
3D Touch Needs Opened Apps To Show More Options
There are two types of options that 3D Touch displays. Static options and Dynamic options. For example, if you have Twitter app and want to use 3D Touch without opening the app, you will get Compose Tweet option only.
However, if you have opened the app previously and then trying to do something using 3D Touch, you will get more other options like Tweet to Someone etc.
If you find that you are having trouble getting 3D Touch to work, you can adjust the sensitivity to trigger actions with a lighter or harder press. It might be a good idea to adjust your settings to lighter for a while, until you get a feel for how it feels.
To adjust the pressure settings for 3D Touch, open the Settings app and tap on General. Then, select Accessibility, and then 3D Touch from the available options. Then, slide the bar to the left or right to adjust the sensitivity. A preview is available for you to test the best sensitivity for your needs.
