Strong pressing on the screen, causing various actions, can interfere with the use of the iPhone or just annoy. This can be easily removed. 3D Touch is one of the few interesting and unique features in the iPhone that has not received decent recognition from users. Some owners of Apple smartphones have determined its usefulness and convenience for themselves, while others, on the contrary, consider this technology as distracting or even irritable. For all those who do not like the constantly pop-up on a strong pressing of the window, the editors of Treshboksa prepared a simple instruction to turn off 3D Touch.

Despite some of the advantages offered by 3D Touch, the technology does sometimes interfere when working on the iPhone. For example, if you have never used a preview, available actions and context menus by hard pressing the screen, then the usual process of removing an application from the Home screen can be difficult. Moreover, finding the 3D Touch settings is not so easy, and Apple itself is gradually abandoning displays with pressure sensitivity – it is no longer in the new iPhone XR and, according to rumors, will not be in the next generation iPhone.

If you are using an older iPhone with 3D Touch support and plan to upgrade to an iPhone XR, then you may need to turn off 3D Touch now so you can get used to the lack of this feature.
