If you do not want to use 3D Touch, you can disable it following these steps: Settings > General > Accessibility.
- Hard push on the Phone app on the Home screen will give access to convenient mini-menus. With help of these pop-ups you will be able to call one of favorite contacts or quickly add a new contact to your Contact list.

- New technology allows you to use some app features without actual using of an app: press on Mail icon and start writing a new email, press iBooks to search for certain book, Safari will open a new tab for you and Maps will start leading you towards home. Even cross platform apps use 3D Touch already – at least, Twitter and Instagram do.
- This technology allows you to get a notion of the content of the file without opening it with help of previews. For example, there is no need to open Mail to read the new email now – press the new email and it will show the preview and if you will hold your finger longer, it will open.
- There is a possibility to get a preview of the web page without leaving an app or email – just press on it.
- When you press on the keyboard, you can control the cursor and type more correctly and faster.
- 3D Touch improves the quality and convenience of drawing on Apple devices as the level of pressure indicates the thickness of the lines.
