All You Need To Know About 3D Touch

The newly introduced 3D Touch is one of the more popular new features in the latest iPhone and the users are probably still coming to grips on how to properly use the much talked about feature. This article will help you understand it better so you don’t run into any nuisances in the future.

Firstly, we shall begin with the basics, that is, how to turn the 3D Touch on or off. Kind people at Apple, fortunately, had made disabling or enabling the 3D Touch a fairly simple task, something that can be achieved with just a few taps. Here’s a step-by-step breakdown:

  1. Open Settings on your iPhone 6Sor 6S
  2. Make your way to General > Accessibility > 3D Touch
  3. Toggle the visible switch to either on or off.

And that’s it; a quick and easy, procedure of a few minutes.

Now, moving onto the somewhat complex portion: adjusting sensitivity. The pressure you apply on the iPhones screen is pertinent to how the 3D Touch operates, therefore it is imperative that you adjust the sensitivity accordingly. Maybe the device requires you to press down on it a little too hard on the screen, and this can lead to some slight problems; in such a case you should adjust the sensitivity so that you apply just the right amount of pressure. Here’s another step-by-step breakdown of the process:

  1. Open Settings on your iPhone 6s or 6s Plus.
  2. Make your way to General > Accessibility > 3D Touch
  3. Slide the sensitivity slider in the 3D Touch sensitivity section to change how hard you need to press the screen to activate the feature. There are three levels of pressures to choose from: Light, Medium, and Firm.

Finally, the last thing to teach you is how to turn your keypad into a trackpad using 3D Touch. Using 3D Touch, a user can easily bring up the trackpad in order to easily select and manipulate text with immense precision. Here’s how it’s done:

  1. Launch any application and tap on the text entry field to bring up the software keypad.
  2. Press the keypad firmly to enable the software trackpad

3D Touch is an easy-to-use feature that will make using the new iPhone a blast, or maybe if you’re not a big fan of it, read the first part and simply turn it off.
