Apple always tries best to amaze the public without giving consumers any chance of getting betrayed. The company with its hard-working employees keeps their endeavors continue to offer something eccentric and new in mobile technology. Since its first iPhone launch, the tech juggernaut has brought several revolutionary upgrades in its successive iPhone devices. And now, you have four iPhone devices with a great 3D Touch technology.
This display technology was introduced with the launch of iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus and then endowed the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus handsets as well with a wide color gamut upgrade.
When the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus were launched, they came with several upgrades, but 3D Touch display was praised a lot by the world and had become the show stopper at the launch event. This new technology has made the interaction with your handset more captivating than its predecessors and making people to upgrade to these Apple handsets. Let’s find out the reasons why this advanced technology has the capability to betray the other mobile manufacturers in technological advancement:
How It Works?
Until the introduction of 3D Touch, people had the accessibility to swipe, pinch and pan around the screen. But now, your device can sense the amount of pressure being applied to the screen and acts accordingly, that makes your display interacting with you in three dimensions.
The 3D Touch works with Taptic engine, which already works the iPhone devices to create vibration. When any pressure is sensed by the 3D Touch, taptic engine generates the vibration and tiny pulses which provides haptic feedback accordingly.
Three ways of Interacting via 3D Touch:
Apple has brought this technology to bestow its iPhone users with a completely new experience while interacting with the iPhone. So, you have three new ways or we could say actions to apply on your 3D Touch-enabled iPhone display. Let’s take a look at them:
Peek and Pop:
The first action is named Peek and Pop which act within the apps. If it’s Apple’s inbuilt apps, then voila1 you will love to interact within apps through this. But, if it’s a third party app, then it must support 3D Touch or develop accordingly. With this action, you can do a lot of things on the screen.
Let’s take an instance- when you lightly press a Message or email, then other content will fade down and a preview of the message or mail will appear on your screen. If you swipe the peek screen up, then you can launch the custom actions to perform on the peeked page. Your peek will remain active until you lift the hand of the screen. ‘Pop’ on the other side works when you press the screen harder. The hard press will let you access the content properly.
If you buy the Apple iPhone 6s Plus or 6s, or the new iPhone 7, you can now launch a set of quick actions by pressing on any app icon. This new technology lets you access both, static and dynamic types of Quick Actions. For instance, when you press the Message app, three contacts will display on the screen to send instant messages. If any app doesn’t have Quick Action enabled, then you will feel several vibrations on the touch to inform you about the unsupported to the new 3D Touch feature. This new action is best to save your time in tapping several times to access a part of an app.
Turn the Keyboard into Trackpad:
Peek & Pop and Quick Actions are best in terms of functionality, which will definitely make you fall in for the Apple smartphones come embedded with this new technology. But,, this is not all about this new 3D Touch technology. You can even turn the keyboard into the trackpad. Just keep your touch strong on the keyboard and see your virtual keyboard turning into the trackpad. Now, you can drag your finger up and down to move the cursor- the most effective way to position the cursor on the screen. This eases you from the hassle of tapping the finger on the text and then wishes for setting the cursor on the right position.
It’s all about the 3D Touch display, which is available to facilitate you with its rich features and functionalities on iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7, and iPhone 7 Plus. Now, you will have to decide which can cost you within budget and meets your expectations.
