How Does iPhone 6s Force Touch Feature Work

Multiple sources are talking about Apple’s iPhone 6s Force Touch feature. They state that Apple's upcoming two next-generation smartphones iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will come equipped with a screen that responds to different level of pressure.

In addition there ‘s some pretty proved evidence that iOS 9 on these new iPhones will feature built-in Force Touch support it potentially mean a wider release of the feature on future iOS devices.

How Force Touch Works On The Next-Generation iPhones

On the new iPhones, Force Touch will be represented in three ways: no additional user interface as with the subtle integration on the new MacBooks, a user interface that appears surrounding the finger where the Force Touch gesture is conducted, or a shortcut list toward the bottom of the display akin to a typical options list across iOS.

Here’s a short description on how iPhone 6s Plus Force Touch feature will be implemented throughout some of Apple’s stock iOS applications.

Home screen

Deep-pressing on the Home screen icon presents you with shortcuts to specific tabs of that app. For example, if a user deep presses on the Phone app icon, he will be able to shortcut directly to the Voicemail tab.

Music app

Pressing on the listing for a song brings up a menu with options including quickly add the song to a playlist or save it for offline listening, saving your finger a trip to the ellipsis icon on the rightmost side of each track listing.

Apple Maps

Firmly pressing on the place of interest in Apple Maps it does a quick look up of the location. Firmly pressing on the destination immediately starts turn-by-turn navigation. Currently, if a user wants to start navigating to a destination, he must search for the place of interest, tap the navigation logo on the map view, then tap another button to actually start navigating. In this case, the Force Touch gesture will skip two steps.

Force Touch shortcuts

Pressing firmly an address or contact name brings up previews of a map view or contact card, respectively. Deep pressing a link in Safari instantly previews that webpage. If you want to look up word definition in any app you need to deep-press on it.

Force Touch feedback

Currently Apple Watch and 2015 MacBooks gain Force Touch trackpads that provide additional context to firm presses in the form of haptic feedback. But actually it is not clear if the new iPhones will implement haptics. Some form of physical feedback is reportedly in the works for Force Touch.

So as you notice iPhone 6s Force Touch feature bring some fresh experience for Apple's products fans and it simplify the device usage.
