    I am really having a hard time getting used to it for some reason. I am sure I will eventually but just wanted to know in the meantime who actually turned it off?

    It's an awesome feature that I use many times every day, so no...and I never will. :)

    I don't use it much. Why turn it off? I doesn't do any harm.

    I use it a lot for home screen shortcuts and multitasking back to the last app. Your preference but why not leave it on and just tap instead of press the screen?

    I use it constantly. So, no, definitely haven't turned it off.

    If you want to turn off 3D Touch permanently just downgrade to an iPhone 6 (or maybe an SE?). Problem solved.

    Buys an iPhone 6s and turns off 3D Touch. *facepalm*

    Most people don't use 3D Touch and some have forgotten it was there...reason why I don't consider it an innovation....just your vibrating average right click .......

    There are meaningful stats showing that?

    Actually you can turn it off or so it seems. General/Accessibility/3D Touch (on/off)

    And just a phone that could catch fire at any moment? What's the point of this?

    I don't even know what it is/how to use it, but unless a performance boost or something else is gained from turning it off I can't really see any reason to.

    It makes things easier. What do you when you want to make a phone call or send a quick message? It's so much easier just to 3D touch. Also instead of double tapping the home button you can swipe from the left to access the multitasking menu

    Seems pointless turning it off even if you don't use it much as there will be a time when you find it useful

    But blown phone and/ or human. Apple is the best compromise. And like Tim would say, "Only Apple could do this... give you the best compromise between usability and safety. It is simply unbelievable."

    How would disabling it enable you to get used to it in the mean time?

    Never going to turn it off.

    A few that I find very useful & that weren't mentioned :

    3D Touch anywhere on the keyboard to move the carret / text selector (same as two fingers on iPad)

    3D Touch on backspace to speed up block deletion

    3D Touch to clear all notifications

    Just wished there would be more shortcuts & actions already !!

    I went from an iPhone 6 to a 7. The thing that bugs me about it is when I'm in safari sometimes I have trouble clicking links now. It doesn't always open the first tap. Sometimes it thinks I want to do the peek thing or it highlights what I'm trying to open and blurs out everything around what I'm tapping. I don't really use it on the home screen either. One and awhile I've been trying it but mostly only on the settings app when I want to get to the battery stats quickly. Otherwise I don't see much use for anything else! Why not just open the app? Most of the short cuts open the app to a place in the app anyway. What's faster? Force pressing then releasing to open the app in a specific spot in the app or just tapping the app open and tapping to the place you wanted to be? Not much difference. In other words, I guess it's kind of neat but really isn't necessary in most cases. I'm thinking about turning it off so I can use safari without having to think about how hard I tap on links again. It's slowing me down!

    I would suggest just turning the 3D touch sensitivity all the way up. It will be there when you need it, but you also will not accidentally activate it.

    Didn't even know that was an adjustable setting. Thanks!
