    Look at the app in the dock.
    It's like 3D Touch!

    No. There is no 3D Touch option on the iPad. It Lacks the display and the haptic engine. What you are seeing, is called a long press that is in place of 3D Touch, which also can be used on the iPhone SE.

    I am super annoying that it didn't make it to the new ipad pro 10.5! Basically means that I will have an inconsistent user experience across the two devises...

    I think we're going to be waiting a while longer - it's likely a very difficult design challenge to scale 3D Touch up to a display that is so large. I expect they're working on it but we won't see it for at least another cycle or two. I'll be very happy once it arrives though (maybe in time for a bezeless 12.9" iPad Pro :)

    Tim Cook actually quoted that implementing 3D Touch an iPhone was extremely difficult, which I can only imagine a larger display with the iPad would make it also a challenge. But I easily see this technology making its way to the iPad eventually. Which would include the haptic home button and Haptic engine.

    And this is exactly why I ordered a refurb iPad Pro 9.7 yesterday....

    I was SO pissed. 10.5 with force touch would have been an instant sale.
