    So I've read all the descriptions of how to use 3D Touch to access the switcher. I've watched the videos.

    In practice, I can only do it maybe 1 time out of 5, and it seems random whether it goes back one app or pops into the switcher.

    Anyone have any best practices for getting 3D Touch Multitasking to work reliably?

    The best advice I could give you is to lower the 3d touch to light in the settings, which makes it easier to trip the 3d touch functions.

    Also, make sure when you do it, swipe all the way across to just switch apps. If you go to fast and let go early it will pop it into multitask mode.

    Works every time for me. Just press firmly on the left edge then scroll to the right. Don't wait for the cards to show you don't have to. Just press firmly and scroll.

    Imagine a strip on the left hand side of the screen, between the bezel and the left-most row of icons. That is where you want to be pressing.

    This is good info

    It doesn't help that I have a glass screen protector that's not full screen , so I'm pressing on edge of the screen protector

    I'll just double tap the home button like before

    It works fine for me. I am using a otter box defender at this very moment. If I can do it with the otter box on you shouldn't have a issue with just a screen protector.
