3D Touch on the iPhone 6s

One of the new features of the iPhone 6s is 3D Touch, a new technology that enables the device to not only detect traditional swipes and taps, but also presses into the screen.

The iPhone 6s can not only detect a forceful push on the display – it can also determine how hard you’re pushing it. That’s why Apple have called it 3D Touch – it takes interaction with our mobile devices quite literally into a new dimension.

The best way to demonstrate this new innovation is to show it in action, so please watch my latest video (above) to see it in action!

When I first heard about 3D Touch I thought it might be a bit of a gimmick, however I’m already finding that I use it every day – it really is rather useful.

This is only the beginning, as developers come up with ingenious ways to act on pushes “into” the screen we’ll no doubt begin to see all sorts of interesting new uses for this technology.

If you liked it, please give the video a thumbs up on YouTube and if you enjoyed the content, please subscribe to my channel where you can find lots more!

Comparing the iPhone 4, iPhone 5s and iPhone 6s Plus

October 17, 2015

Here’s a new video on my new YouTube channel I’ve started up to support my blog. There’s not much to write about as it’s all in the visuals! The video compares and contrasts three iPhones: the iPhone 4 (released in June 2010), the iPhone 5s (released in September 2013) and finally the newest of the […]

Adding a monitor arm to my desk setup

October 10, 2015

This week I added a new monitor arm to my desk setup. In this blog (and accompanying video) I describe why I chose the particular arm I went for and how I found using it since installing. I’ve had a computer for years. So I’ve had different monitors for years too. I’ve never had an […]

First YouTube post

September 30, 2015

To help support my text blog (and perhaps make me update it a bit more often) I’m going to occasionally upload a video to support what I’m banging on about. Let’s be honest, I’m not the most photogenic of individuals so I imagine most videos will involve me standing behind the camera so that you get […]

Netflix has got me!

May 19, 2015

Recently a new channel from Channel 5 launched on Freesat called Spike. It’s a stupid name for a TV channel, however television executives live on a different planet to the rest of us so I’ll let that one go. The only thing I can see worth watching on Spike is Breaking Bad. I’d heard of the programme (who […]

LG 31MU97 4K monitor

April 15, 2015

Ever since I bought my new cylindrical Mac Pro just over a year ago, I’ve wanted a retina display to plug in to it. That time has finally come as I’ve purchased an LG 31MU97 31″ true 4K monitor. A “retina” display is one that has so many pixels that you can’t see them. Most […]

Working standing up

December 29, 2014

For several months now I’ve been working at my desk standing up. Actually, that’s not quite right as I haven’t been standing constantly for months, there are times when I lie down (at night for example in bed) and I do sit down in the evening… but you know what I mean! I was first […]

December 2, 2014

Huge apologies for the lack of blogging over the last few months. With the nights drawing in there’s little in the way of excuses for not keeping these pages up to date! Here’s a few of the things I’m hoping to be blogging about over the coming weeks: Freesat Freetime and specifically the “on demand” […]

Where have I been

October 21, 2014

It’s been a while since my last blog post (several weeks in actual fact) so this is a quick post to say that I’ll be back blogging again soon! I’ve got loads to write about including OS X Yosemite, 4K (and even 5K) monitors, standing desks, the rise and rise of Southampton Football Club, dog […]
