3D Touch.
The next generation of Multi-Touch.

iPhone 6s introduces an entirely new way to interact with your phone. For the first time, iPhone senses how much pressure you apply to the display. In addition to familiar Multi-Touch gestures like Tap, Swipe and Pinch, 3D Touch introduces Peek and Pop. This brings a new dimension of functionality to the iPhone experience. And when you use 3D Touch, your iPhone responds with subtle taps. So not only will you see what a press can do — you’ll feel it.

Introducing Peek and Pop.

Peek and Pop let you preview all kinds of content and even act on it — without having to actually open it. For example, with a light press, you can Peek at each email in your inbox. Then when you want to open one, press a little deeper to Pop into it.

Peek at your emails before you open them.

Quick Actions.
A shortcut to the things you do the most.

Quick Actions let you do the things you do most often faster and in fewer steps. You can start a message to your favourite contacts. Or instantly bring up the camera to snap a selfie. Or immediately get directions home. Many of these actions can even be done with a single press, direct from the Home screen.

Many Quick Actions work direct from the Home screen and require only a single press. For example, just press the Phone icon to quickly call one of your favourite contacts.

Introducing Live Photos. Bring memories to life with a single touch.

A whole new way to look at photography, Live Photos go beyond snapshots to capture moments with motion and sound. Press a Live Photo to make it come alive. Experience the crack of a smile. The crash of a wave. Or the wag of a tail.

A whole new dimension of technology.

Using 3D Touch is simple. But the engineering behind it is incredibly advanced. When you press the display, capacitive sensors instantly measure microscopic changes in the distance between the cover glass and the backlight. iOS uses these measurements to provide a fast, accurate and continuous response to finger pressure, which could only happen with deep integration between software and hardware. iPhone 6s also provides you with responsive feedback in the form of subtle taps, letting you know that it’s sensing the pressure you’re applying.

Apps will never feel the same again.

3D Touch will let you do more than ever with iOS 9. But it will also deepen the experience of your favourite apps and games from the App Store. Developers will be able to add 3D Touch–enabled actions to their apps, such as pressure-sensitive drawing, Peek and Pop, Quick Actions and much more.
