“By weaving 3D Touch more deeply into the fabric of iOS 10 — and specifically, making it an essential part of its lock screen — Apple finally arms potentially revolutionary feature with true purpose,” Barrett reports. “You may not use 3D Touch much today, but after iOS 10 arrives this fall, you may wonder how you lived without it.”
“3D touch is instrumental to Apple’s newly rethought lock screen, in a way that could fundamentally change how you interact with your iPhone,” Barrett reports. “Other smartphones… don’t offer the one thing that makes the iOS lock screen truly unique: 3D Touch.
