Apple CEO Tim Cook Reveals His Favourite iPhone 6s Feature
Before the iPhone 6s launch, rumours and multiple leaks of the iPhone 6s had suggested that it would come with a massive battery, USB Type-C port and fast-charging tech. Unfortunately, we weren’t so lucky. The few new features Apple did announce were upgraded cameras, new Force Touch and an upgraded body.
Now, Apple CEO in a conversation with Buzzfeed News revealed his favourite new feature about the iPhone 6s – the 3D Touch. This feature is an ungraded version of Force Touch, which was introduced with the MacBook. Just like Force Touch, it also senses your action depending on the amount of pressure you apply on the iPhone screen. Adding to the multi-touch gestures like Tap, Swipe, Pinch, 3D Touch brings Peek and Pop. Tim Cook admitted that these features “save so much time.”
With Peek and Pop you can preview the content without opening it entirely. For example, If someone sends you a link to a website, you can Peek at it without leaving the screen you’re on. If you want to open the full page in Safari, press the link a little more deeply to Pop into it.
I personally think 3D Touch is a game changer, I find that my efficiency is way up with 3D touch, because I can go through so many emails so quickly. It really does cut out a number of navigational steps to get where you’re going.
In the same interview, Tim Cook revealed that, going forward, the company may decide to make stock iOS apps optional. Some of the apps we will be able delete are Tips, Podcasts, Compass, Stocks and iBooks. This would mean good news for people who have opted for the lower storage space iPhones.
