    Hey everyone. So in recent news that iOS 13 will omit certain 3D Touch features around the OS, just curious to know if the 3D Touch feature that allows you to hold On The left side of the display to swipe between apps has also been removed.

    Can anyone with the beta confirm this? Thanks

    I guess us old geezers with Touch ID buttons will have to double-press them in the future, as the newer devices all have Face ID and the home indicator which makes it even easier by just swiping up or in a direction. Won't miss it, though.

    I see no reason why they would disable 3D Touch on older devices just because the newest ones don’t have it

    I have a 6S and 3D touch on the left-side still brings up the app switcher.

    Sure. But killing something that is already there I don’t know. I think you will be able to do both

    Ditto on my iPhone 8. And you can still directly swipe between apps.

    There are reports 3D touch is pretty much dead in IOS13 beta, being replaced system-wide with slow haptic touch. I hope this is only for the beta because it will piss a lot of people off otherwise.

    There almost no difference in response between my 6s with 3D Touch and my X-RAY with haptic touch.

    Wouldn't it make it possible for lawsuits as well? Having that feature must have weighed on at least some of the buyers minds when choosing which phone to purchase. Removing it's usability from older phones (therefore invalidating a piece of the hardware people paid for) seems like grounds for such.

    I’d say lawsuits would be likely. I’m holding out hope this is only a beta issue and they will include 3D Touch functionality in the final release. I say this because they still advertise it as a feature on the XS apple website. I can’t see them disabling it for 100s of millions of active iPhones but we live in interesting times.
