3D Touch Support Will Soon Come to Facebook’s iOS App


When iPhone 6S was launched last year, Apple started taking the smartphone business into a new screen-centric direction and trying to set itself apart from other high-end devices in the market. This is how 3D Touch was introduced to Apple’s flagship product, a feature that causes the phone’s touchscreen to react differently when the user applies pressure on the display. The 3D Touch is aimed at diversifying the way we interact with iPhones. For example, Apple introduced “peek and pop,” a term that describes the options available when the iPhone 6S user hard presses a link in an article. After displaying a preview of the webpage linked, the user can opt to follow the link or close the preview. And speaking of Facebook, the social network told Techcrunch that 3D Touch support will soon come to Facebook’s iOS app – provided you own an iPhone 6S. Users will be able to use the hard press feature to get a “sneak peek” for someone’s profile.

  • Apple Isn't Being Nice to Its Biggest Fans

    At this week's developers conference, Apple made a whole bunch of announcements aimed at getting the hordes of people who make their living building apps and software for iOS, Mac, and Apple Watch excited to work with the company. Some of those announcements, especially Apple's plan to make its popular Swift programming language open source, got applause and cheers. But not everybody is happy with Apple at the moment. First off, a lot of things Apple announced make a lot of startups redundant. Developers call this well-documented phenomenon "sherlocking," in reference to the time in 2002 that Apple introduced an updated search feature called "Sherlock 3" into Mac OS X that made a commercial, outside product named "Watson" totally obsolete.
