Why Force Touch on the iPhone will be awesome

“Following the arrival of Apple Watch, a lot of people are expecting to see Apple bring Force Touch to the iPhone,” MacNN writes. “It seems inevitable that Apple will do just that, with the possibility that it could arrive as soon as the next version of the iPhone, expected to arrive in the next couple of months. Not only will it work as a key feature differentiator, it will actually be a great addition for iPhone functionality, and I can’t wait for it to arrive.”

“If Apple implements Force Touch on the iPhone as it has on the Apple Watch, it will be a great way of allowing users to access certain additional functions within an iOS app that might otherwise have required a user to exit an app they are in and switch to the Settings app to control it from there,” MacNN writes. “Further, on the larger iPhone display, Force Touch on iOS could get Mac-like abilities, as seen in the way Apple has implemented similar technology in the Force Touch trackpad. Pressure sensitive drawing and the ability to press harder on the display in apps like iMovie for iOS to scrub through a video are real possibilities.”

  1. I like force touch on my AppleWatch specially if that means the Home button will disappear at some point in the future but I am concerned how force touch will impact older iPhone users. My Mom uses an iPhone and I am not sure if she will be strong and her hands steady enough for force touch. I keep my fingers crossed that the force touch will be optimized for different users’ capabilities.
