3D Touch is a technology that allows a device Apple to distinguish the strength of a user's pressing on a smartphone display. 3d touch is based on the previously patented Force Touch technology found in smartwatches Apple and select models MacBook. The ability of the display to 'feel' the pressure applied allows iOS to expand the range of possible actions depending on the pressure of the finger. Additional functionality becomes available and the usability of the smartphone increases.
What is 3D Touch
Starting with iPhone 6S Apple phones and tablets boast an interesting and useful option – 3D Touch. Its essence is that thanks to it, the display recognizes pressing force. Previously, a simple click launched the program, pressing a little harder allowed it to be moved or deleted. Now, if you press hard on the application icon, a special menu will appear. From here, the main actions related to the running program start. For example, if you hold down the camera icon, you will be able to immediately select the front module or record a video. The call icon menu includes the ability to add a new contact to the address book, find the required user from the list, or view recent calls.

Unfortunately, this feature is not available for all applications. About half of those that are initially installed in the gadget support the option. However, more and more third-party application developers are adding 3D Touch support. There is no doubt that soon each program will have its own additional menu.
