How To Customize 3D Touch Pressure Sensitivity on iPhone 6s or 6s Plus

Just as we saw the newly launched Apple iPhone 6s and 6s Plus break all previous records of the weekend sales immediate to the launch of the new flagship from Apple in US, what previously stood out as a major revamp in this new flagship lineup was the new dimension of touch Apple has brought to its smartphones with a 3D Touch Display. What this 3D Touch brings to the table is an incredible new way for you to interact with your iPhone’s display with a display mated to a more than 90 Capacitive pressure sensors that can help the smartphone granularly identify how much pressure a user is applying to the screen and perform a specific set to actions accordingly, thus enhancing the interactive capabilities.


With all of this, we again got to see the prowess Apple possesses in order to set up the most perfect amalgamation of the software and hardware together on these iPhones to make this 3D Touch implementation flawless as ever. So to say, you can now tap on the Camera icon on your iPhone and you would now be presented with various shortcuts that allow you to delve into any certain action directly, such as taking a selfie, rather than having to open up the Camera app first and then navigating to front camera to do the same. Also, with a feature such as peek and pop, you can now choose to preview content without actually opening up a new application with a light touch on the screen allowing for a ‘peek’ into the content and a longer press turning the peek gesture to ‘pop’ up the content there-in.


With all of this coming as more of a path-breaking launch, making way for a new dimension to be added to the way smartphones interact and respond, from the usual course of incremental updates to smartphones that had become more of a norm off-late, Apple has once again proved its mettle by coming out with such an incredible feature on its new flagships. Well with all of that being said, Apple, consequent upon the launch of its flagships, has also mated a function that lets the users customize 3D Touch Pressure Sensitivity on iPhone 6s or 6s Plus. What that would then do is allow you to set the amount of pressure that a certain function or action gets initiated upon, thus allowing you to take control of the pressure sensitivity mechanism on your 3D Touch enabled iPhone. In order to do the same, we today bring you a simple step-by-step tutorial on How-to customize 3D Touch Pressure Sensitivity on iPhone 6s or 6s Plus. Take a look!

How To Customize 3D Touch Pressure Sensitivity on iPhone 6s or 6s Plus

Step #1: First up, fire up the default Settings menu on your iPhone and navigate to General>Accessibility>3D Touch.

Step #2: Next up, you would now see a slider that you help you adjust and choose from the 3 different pressure sensitivity ranges viz. Light, Medium and Firm to let the 3D touch sensors act accordingly.


Step #3: Setting the slider to Light would work the best as the further you increase the pressure sensitivity, the more pressure you would be required to apply on the display to initiate an action/function allotted to that specific touch gesture.
