As the desire to save money may bury a unique feature, to disappoint the developers and hit users. And most importantly: why use 3D Touch right now.
Analyst Ming Chi Kuo in late January reported that Apple is working on multiple new iPhone. One of them (with display 6.1 inch) will be left without detection technology, touch, 3D touch. While the news is on the level of rumors, treat it with skepticism. But the reasons for the misgivings: first, it’s really obvious way to cut the cost of production, and second, rumor has positively supported by the fans. Nobody seems worried about the fate of the 3D Touch. And for good reason.
3D Touch is the most underrated technologies. Apple just earlier abandoned its marketing promotion. The pressure of a detector is turned in homework. But the weak is not supposed to be a bury a useful feature.
To quickly erase all notifications from the lock screen? 3D Touch. To adjust the level of illumination of the flashlight? 3D Touch. Even if there is a standard application, a list of small features and Goodies is almost endless. With strong pressure you to close tabs, add widgets, view notifications. Sometimes it saves one click, sometimes a dozen clicks.
To unsubscribe from a source of convenient solutions – a betrayal by Apple. Technology should be publicly available and not premium. In addition, the unit cost of the sensor layer, which is responsible for the recognition of the high pressure, over time.
As with any advanced technology, 3D Touch puts the developers with new challenges. Developers need to think of how to complement the software, without violating the foundations of his work. It is a challenge, from which users will benefit. We could never get comfortable comfortable switch to “access Point”, if not 3D Touch. Similarly, in “the Chamber” would not have appeared, for example, quick access to self.
At the start of the 3D mouse is implemented on smartphones. But a couple of years later, it became obvious. Is the ability to “hack” the interface, which, thanks to the Taptic vibration motor Engine, a pleasure to use.
It is foolish to deny that many do not use 3D Touch. Almost every bit of news about this technology. People admit: good old clicks.
All this, of course, should be served without negative connotation. What 3D Touch is not necessary to use – a big advantage. Technology can no longer be presented in the form of an ultimatum – “enjoy or die.” Always need options that will allow you to dissolve between the more advanced audience and the everyday user. Oddly enough, pressure has become such a separator in the Apple ecosystem. They are the ones who want to get from a smartphone maximum. But this does not mean that they should pay the extra $ 100- $ 200.
We have already received one compulsory “innovation” – the rejection of the headphone Jack. Seem to have a choice much better.
A number of programs in recent years. For example, Automator Workflow, where you can define the chains of applications and services. To use the scripts for best results, hold the icon Workflow on the start screen. The same situation with the “Weather” – there is no need to open the program. Similar situation with “Reminders”, “Calendar”, numerous semitechnical and customers of social networks.
3D Touch for “Weather” and Telegram
If the cheapest (and, of, most popular), the iPhone will remain without sensitive to touch the display, it will look like a slap in the face to developers. Is Apple support going to show them a disappointment in their own technology. Think in the future.
While the refusal of the 3D Touch remains unconfirmed, rumors, it’s time to taste the technology. I can not name all of the instances, but the list of your favorite life hacks – both within the system and for third-party applications.
- Quick record slow-mo video.
Often the most spectacular moments are fleeting. To record video with high framrates (240 fps), you can mess with the camera app is open, scroll through several modes. Much easier to hold down the icon “Camera”, and you choose the slow-mo mode.
For 3D Touch “Camera” and Workflow
The 3D Touch makes the iPhone the ultimate tool for writing text. Now, instead of of having to take your finger and put the cursor on you. Just press on the virtual keyboard and it will turn into the trackpad.
I have a long list of playlists. Had to do too many clicks: click on a song, then on the shortcut menu, and even to go back. It replaces the 3D Touch – just press the cover and choose the desired action: add to playlist, delete, like and so on. A detail which will save hours of time for music lovers.
Obviously I write a lot from a smartphone. I have a few specialized applications: Notes as a messy dump, Bear to drafts of articles, Ulysses for longido, Evernote for organizing texts and ricerca. Each with a different interface and logic of usage, but due to the 3D touch work uniform.
3D Touch for Bear and Ulysses
Not really a fair, but tricky lifehack. If you are in the Telegram, received a message, the reply to which is not want you. Then open the preview window – it allows you to read a message without changing its status. The main thing is not to swipe the preview up, then you will see the chat.
And the last one. IOS 11, Apple has integrated some emulation of the iPhone. This is the case with the iPhone. Just a little Apple standardized the interface and pulled the old models. However, if you roll back to a lower level of the new iPhone, even in favor of lower prices, this can only lead to a dead end. Such technologies should not be exclusive. Their purpose is to be everywhere.
