    With 3D Touch you can force touch on a homescreen icon, rest your finger on the screen, hover to the to the wanted menu item and remove your finger from the display.

    With Haptic Touch you habe to long press, but you have to remove finger from the screen and the menu appears. Then you can tap a menu item.

    I‘m not sure if this behaviour is only a bug in iOS13 Beta 1 or it‘s working as dedigned.

    The only reason why you have to remove your finger before the menu list appears is to choose between a Haptic Touch and a Move/Delete app icon.

    I hope they restore proper 3D Touch functionality in iOS 13. It's hard to get used to having to remove my finger from the screen in order to get the menu to appear. I'm assuming that it's a bug in DB 1.

    I have an iPhone 8.

    My biggest gripe with iOS 13 is exactly that. I'm fine with older devices getting 3D Touch like functionality but please Apple, don't give me the same way of interacting with my 3D Touch capable device. I loved peek & pop and that's gone now. Let's hope they restore proper functionality of it in beta 2.

    If 3D Touch is really going away, can someone running the beta tell me if the 3D Touch multitasking gesture goes away completely, or is that at least retained in iOS 13 as a long press thing? I use that all the time rather than the home button to get back to the home screen.

    If by 3d touch multitasking gesture you mean 3d touch on the left edge and swipe right to access the "next" app, then that's still there. I don't think the gesture exists on the newer phones.
