3D Touch in iTunes and the App Store — not exactly what one would expect

IPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have probably had to get used to the 3D Touch, to understand the principle of operation and in some cases to use a feature intuitively. However, many fail to use it where I could. Probably because I just don’t know, in some cases, the 3D Touch can help. We have already talked about 3D Touch in some apps. Today it came to the App Store and iTunes.


By the way, the App Store and iTunes 3D Touch function is not working exactly as one would expect. But about all under the order. Let’s start with the actions available at strong pressing the icon. In the case of the App Store you can go to your purchases, enter the promo code or update all apps. Agree, it is convenient to look at the number of available updates on the App Store icon, then press him hard and to update all apps.

At strong pressing the icon iTunes you can go to purchases, downloads, search or enter the promo code.


Now all that relates to the preview content. You can press harder on the application icon or album in order to open the preview. However, for some reason, after a severe depression you can’t hold your finger up to send a link to the object being viewed in iTunes or the App Store. In addition, preview is not available everywhere and not for everything.

You can’t use the 3D Touch in the “Search” section, you can preview apps, music or movies on the banners at the top of the screen. Also preview is not available for individual tracks, episodes, podcasts, ringtones, and more. For what reason? Perhaps Apple was in a hurry.
