getting started with 3d touch

When using your new iPhone 6s or 6s Plus, it’s not immediately obvious how and when to use the new 3D Touch feature, which reveals extra controls when you press harder on your phone’s screen. Here are 10 tips for making the most out of this cool new way to interact with your phone, from peeking at emails or websites to quickly accessing app menus. 1 Adjust 3D Touch Sensitivity or Disable It Altogether If you want to change the responsiveness of 3D Touch or turn it off completely, go to Settings > General > Accessibility > 3D Touch.

FEATURED CARROT Fit ($2.99) For some of us, gentle encouragement just doesn’t cut it.
