Apple's newly introduced 3D Touch feature is described as "a new interface revolution" by Wired. The update responds to different levels of pressure and lets users access advanced phone features with a simple tap.

While most touchscreens don't respond to varying pressure points, this updated Apple interface aims to change that with enhanced features that are said to make the life of phone users more convenient. The 3D Touch-based enhancements include word definition capabilities that are accessed with a firm press to one's screen.

Described as highly responsive and intuitive, this new system also boasts improvements like light phone taps that access calling features while an app continues to run on one's home screen. Furthermore, users are given quick access to camera and messaging features with specific taps that don't interfere with open web pages or applications.
