An added feature can quickly turn into a gimmick that is there for the feature's sake, that is why last week we wanted to ask you how often do you use 3D Touch on your new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. Well, it turns out that more than half of our respondents have just fired it up to show to friends and family, or, after the novelty has worn off, are using it every now and then, and that's that. About 13% say they are using it all the time, while 32% can't be bothered with any pressure-sensitive shenanigans.
The frequent users percentage will likely increase with future iterations and usage scenarios of the technology, as often happens when something gets introduced for the first time, but for now our respondents are seemingly taking a moderate approach to the 3D Touch tech on the new iPhones.
Huawei might have been first to announce a phone with Force Touch screen tech, but the Mate S version in question is yet to hit shelves, while Apple opened the pressure-sensitive floodgates with the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, equipping them with its own take, aptly named 3D Touch. Unlike theForce Touch tech on the Apple Watch, the 3D Touch screen functionality of the new iPhones can distinguish between light tap, and a medium or harder press, allowing for inventive new ways to interact with your apps and games.
The "Peek" option can preview pictures in the gallery with a medium touch, for example, while pressing harder will give you the "Pop" options, entering the picture itself in full screen mode. We already previewed a set of popular apps that have been updated with 3D Touch support, as well assome unique ways that the pressure-sensitive display of the new iPhones let you interact with them.
