The iPhone 6S will have an upgraded version of Force Touch

54 sec read

We’re more or less certain that Apple is adding its Force Touch technology to the iPhone 6S, but Mark Gurman at 9to5Mac claims that iPhone’s version Force Touch will be different from what the company has added to its other products. According to Gurman’s sources, the iPhone 6S will actually have a next-generation version of Force Touch that will be able to sense three levels of pressure instead of two: a soft press, a hard press, and a tap. 

One of the cornerstone features of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, to be announced next Wednesday, is a screen based on the Force Touch technology from the latest MacBook trackpads and the Apple Watch. However, as we noted in previous articles such as our event expectations roundup from yesterday, the Force Touch feature in the new iPhones will actually be a next-generation version of the technology. According to sources familiar with the new iPhones, the new pressure-sensitive screen will likely be called the “3D Touch Display”… While the MacBook trackpads and Apple Watch sense two levels of pressure, the differentiation between a tap and a press, the new iPhones will actually sense three levels of pressure: a tap, a press, and a deeper press, according to sources. The 3D Touch name is therefore derived from the new Force Touch sensor’s ability to sense three dimensions of pressure, rather than two. This opens up the door to new user-interface tricks, such as shortcut gestures across the iPhone 6s version of iOS 9.
