iOS 13 Hints at Lack of 3D Touch on 2019 iPhone Family, Apple Confirms 'Peek', 'Quick Actions' Coming to Compatible Models

Currently, Apple has shown that all of the iPhone and iPad versions which will operate iOS 13 and iPadOS will possess”Peek” previews along with”Quick action” menus. This implies the formal end of hardware-based 3D Touch feature that’s part of the iPhone family since the launch of the iPhone 6s back in September 2015. Especially, the iPhone XR premiered last year without 3D Touch support and utilised the built-in software-based Haptic Touch performance to provide a similar experience. The 2019 iPhone versions are now expected to utilize Haptic Touch instead of 3D Touch.

The official record on the Apple site highlights the iOS 13 will encourage the Peek attribute to preview email messages and Web links by pressing and holding to showcase a hint of the content. Similarly, there will be Quick actions that will emerge after pressing and pressing an app icon to rapidly perform actions specific to the program.

Notably, the Peek and Quick actions attributes were previously related to the iPhone models sporting 3D Touch and were originally described since the Peek and Pop gestures. Apple, however, has become apparently intending to provide them to its iPhone and iPad versions which don’t have the hardware-specific, pressure-sensing technology.

The list confirms that the existing non-3D Touch apparatus, for example, iPhone XR and iPad Air 2, will get Peek previews and fast actions menus through iOS 13. IOS 12.1.1 in December improved the original software-based Haptic Touch experience by enabling notification previews with a long-press gesture onto the screen.

According to a report from MacRumors, users around the iPhone 6s and newer models, except the iPhone SE and iPhone XR, were majorly able to utilize Peek and Quick Actions choices via long presses after installing the initial iOS 13 programmer preview, tipping a software-based approach on models with hardware 3D Touch. Some users were allegedly unable to get 3D Touch settings, though.

When we go by the rumours, iOS 13 would set the stage for future iPhone models sans 3D Touch technology. A report by The Wall Street Journal in January suggested that all 2019 iPhone versions would absence 3D Touch. A research note by a team of Barclays analysts, also shared with MacRumors, additionally maintained that Apple will eliminate 3D Touch from all of its next-generation iPhones.
