Apple, iPhone, and 3D Touch

These past few years since the first iPhone was released in 2007 and each year after that, Apple releases different and exceptional versions as it grows. Apple, or particularly iPhone fans had been anticipating each new release every year since then.

Last year, Apple launched its latest gadgets which included the iPhone 6s Plus, a 5.5 inches’ mobile phone which clearly innovates itself by adding a 3D touch technology. This iPhone version added subtle taps which is very helpful when checking emails quickly and efficiently. 

The first 3D Touch was introduced and used on Apple Watch but was redesigned for iPhones.

Unlike multi-touch technology that only limits usage to tapping, swiping and pinching, the 3D Touch will allow you to "peek" and "pop" as Apple labels it. Peeking allows you to view the content by lightly pressing on the screen. And when you "pop" or press the screen longer, it means it can expand its content, enabling you to interact. 


The Consumer Electronics Show is the best venue for major brands like Apple as well as startups to showcase tech gadgets every year.
