Apple’s new 3D touch is a new way for people to interact with their iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. The new 3D touch feature is called “Peek and Pop”. In other words, its a new tap that allows one to feel what they are doing. Without actually opening, the user can preview and act on all contents. For example, the user can peek at each message in the inbox with a light press. With a harder press, they can pop into the message to fully open it. The feature enables a person to quickly go through an email in his inbox; simply press it lightly to peek at it. On the top of the inbox, the content of that email will appear. That is enough to read a short email. When the user stops pressing, they will get back to the inbox. If the email is a large one then the user will press a litter harder on that email to pop into it and read the full content.
A user can peek at a website by pressing lightly on its link; they will not leave the screen on which they were. they will return to the screen when they stop pressing it. In order to open the website, they will need to press a little harder on the link so they can pop into that page. Similarly, one can view freshly taken pics while taking new ones. When they press lightly on the thumbnail image, they peek into the snap. If they press the same pic a little harder, they will Pop into the image to open it. Using the same lighter and harder presses, users can Peek and Pop into locations and take quick actions on their iPhone 6S (plus) including taking selfies, shooting videos, finding directions, reaching contacts etc.
