With the unveiling of the new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, Apple has gotten rid of 3D Touch.
3D Touch was the feature that first came with the iPhone 6S back in 2015. It was essentially a right-click like you would see on the computer that would be a shortcut and easier access in certain apps.
For apps like the Camera app, you are able to take a selfie, record a video, record a slo-mo video and to take a regular photo. From third-party apps like Tweetbot, you are able to do things like make and send a quick tweet or tweet the latest photo you took.
Apple will instead be adding Haptic Touch to the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro models. AppleInsider explains it best:
“Haptic Touch does without 3D Touch hardware, specifically a capacitive sensing layer, by delivering a similar user experience through software. Instead of pressing firmly on a 3D Touch display, users touch and hold UI elements to invoke secondary commands like app Quick Actions and contextual ‘Peek and Pop’ views.”
Haptic Touch is also set to lower production costs for Apple, which is significant to them, as they are expected to be paying more in production for the iPhone another Apple products starting in 2020 due to the tariff between the United States and China.
