why would it make people without it happy? They’ve clearly done it to have a u I died operating system across all devices. if you still had the function it would have no effect on my happiness.
I don’t think there’s any debate that it was superior it was just under used. I really liked it but I barely ever remembered to use it.So much this!!! Which is an inadvertent acknowledgment on their part that 3D is far superior.
This is fundamentally not true. If your device has 3D Touch hardware, you can still use a force touch in place of a long press in iOS 13. The difference is that anything that could only be done with a force touch (e.g. the pop part of peek and pop) has been modified so that non-3D Touch devices can still perform those actions too. And so the set of actions is now the same across all devices. If you are on a 3D Touch device, you force press as usual to activate (and it is still faster than a long press). For all other devices, the same 3D Touch functionality is now available with a long press. It is true that devices with 3D Touch hardware can also use the long press method to access 3D Touch features. But, I’m not sure why you’d ever want to since a force touch is by definition faster.Force touch is officially gone, with all of its glory. People (including me) may say it is still there but with functionality change. But, in reality, I can also say force touch is gone for good and Never see the light of the day despite being integrated in iPhone 6s, 7, 8, X and Xs lineup.
For functionality, almost all force touch gestures are implemented using long press except keyboard cursor (space bar version is inferior) and text selection (cannot do on iPhone easily and buggy on iPad, less intuitive), As well as aforementioned peek and pop. Also, I hate force touching app context menus trigger wiggle mode. I want wiggle mode much harder to trigger or even get Removed entirely, yet wiggle mode can be triggered much easier than ever.
Easy. Just hold and drag icons around to rearrange. Wiggle mode is mainly for deleting App.I’m not sure what you’re on about with rearranging app icons from the contextual menus. That change was necessary to accommodate non-3D Touch devices. How do you propose to rearrange your home screen icons if Apple removes wiggle mode completely?
