Apple has taken the extra step and created and entire new display that measures the amount of force placed on the screen. This allowing the developer to set various options depending on the pressure. For example; before a soft or hard tap on the camera app would only open the camera and allow users to take pictures, but now you can tap softly to open the quick menu where options such as take selfie, record video, record slo-mo or take a picture are presented. Thus giving users the ability to access the feature they desire within the app instantly.
The 3D Touch also allows a peek function. This will allow a hover screen to be open when pressing on pictures, emails, websites, Facebook pages and much more. Once again the amount of pressure applied is crucial as users can get a quick view into emails to see content without opening the email.
