Check out this unique table used by Apple Stores to promote 3D Touch
Two Apple Stores, one in New York and the other in San Francisco, have been outfitted with a special table that is designed to show off the 3D Touch feature on the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus. With 3D Touch, the screen can differentiate between a light tap on the screen, a regular tap, and a heavy tap. This opens up a whole new world for iPhone users. For example, while looking at an email listing, a light touch will allow you to "peek" and see a preview of the email. A harder tap will "pop" you into the email so that you can view the entire message, and respond to it.

Pressing on an iPhone 6s that is attached to this special table, users will see a rippling water effect. This dovetails with the animated fish wallpaper that is seen on the handset while you are testing out 3D Touch. The latter was supposed to be this year's "killer feature" for the new iPhone models, but there is a question about how strong sales are.

While Apple did set a record for an iPhone launch weekend by selling more than 13 million units, a new report released last week by Pacific Crest Securities chip analyst John Vinh, claims that Apple has reduced component orders for the new iPhones. The analyst now expects Apple to ring up 67 million units in the current holiday shopping quarter. That would be less than the 75 million to 80 million units that other analysts had predicted Apple would sell in the calendar fourth quarter, and would also fall short of the 74.5 million units sold in the same quarter last year.

The two tables in New York and San Francisco are the only ones like it in the world. It isn't known whether Apple plans on ordering more for its other retail locations. Check it out by clicking on the video below.
