Title says it all, do you guys miss 3D Touch on your iPad?
Not a bit. Only time I used it was by accident. I am afraid it never caught on with me.
I use it with most of the apps that offer 3D Touch functionality. I'm fairly reluctant to get an iPad and have to give up this feature.
If it is bothering you, then you could use Apple's return policy to bring the iPad back. In my opinion it's worth trying it out for yourself.
I use it all the time on my iPhone. It's become so second nature that I find myself trying to use it on my iPad.
My main use for 3D Touch is to control the cursor when editing/typing text. So I just use the two finger tap on my iPad to move it around.
I don't guess I miss it but I would love to see 3D Touch on Ipad.
I'm not sure 3D Touch makes sense on the iPad because of the way we hold and iPhone vs iPad. But I sure do miss it when I want to place the cursor in a specific spot
What's worse is that the new iPads don't have capacitive home buttons.
Never use it on my iP7+ and I think I shut it off on my iPhone 6s too.
also, could 3D touch intefer with how the display and Pencil work with each other? (I wouldn't know, just asking.)
Good idea. I might do this.
Didn't know about the two finger app tap.
I probably would find it very frustrating trying to quickly jump to a conversation in iMessage or straight to the search field in IMDB to only find out it's not achievable on an iPad.
Why is it worse?
And to respond to the OP original question. I have iPad air 2 and a 6s. I do not miss 3D touch at all on my iPad.
Every time I need to dismiss several days of notifications. I wish apple would fix the way notifications are grouped.
All they need to do is implement a long press to clear all notifications, kind of like long pressing to close all open tabs in safari.
I use it quite a lot when launching apps, quite handy for getting straight to a specific function.
Starting new mail, opening new tab, shortcut to phone calls etc. Nothing that couldn't be done with a long press (if it didn't start the wiggle), but still.
Oddly, I never miss it on my iPad for some reason.
I don't miss 3D Touch particularly, but do miss the haptic feedback from my iPhone 7 you get when scrolling through timer wheels and the like. Feels much less 'real', if that makes sense. Also I definitely prefer the capacitive home button to the iPad's mechanical.
I use 3D Touch all the time on my iPhone. That said, I think one of the requested features I see for the iPad is 3D Touch. The reason I see it as useful is it would at create a quicker shortcut to access specific parts of the application quicker, versus opening the whole application and having to navigate through the application across a larger display.
It's a jarring experience going from the button on the iPhone 7 to the iPad button - they should both be the same.
I really don't. Although I use 3D Touch quite a bit on my 7, I don't have much of a desire to have it on my Mini 4.
A "jarring experience?" Just my opinion but that sounds a little bit extreme. It is different, certainly, but not jarring. In fact, because of gestures on the iPad, I hardly ever touch the home button or need to!
Turning iPad on it wakes with the opening of the Smart Cover and I place my thumb on the home button to read my thumb and unlock the device. I don't even press down on it! Hardly "jarring" in my experience.
I find that I do need to press down on it after opening the Smart Cover (it displays "press home to open" once it's unlocked) unlike the capacitive button on the iPhone. It just feels old-fashioned having to physically press the home button.
Given all the high tech specs, I wonder why Apple didn't add the new button on the Pro.
Definitely one of the big misses on the iPad. I find that there a few specific things where 3D touch is very useful on the iPhone (which are perhaps very personal). In my case, for example the ability to reply to a text on the home screen. Not having them on iPad is very annoying.
I miss it
Going from watch to iPhone to iPad muscle memory
Is touch schizophrenia
Yep same here. Use that functionality daily on my iPhone 7.
There are little things I want before I get a new iPad. I want 3D Touch, the capacitive home button and matte black. Since the 10.5 didn't have those, I'm keeping the 9.7 in hopes of getting those in the new future.
But, here's the problem I know I'm going to face. When the new iPhone comes out, it'll have features I want in a new iPad. Then I'll be waiting for that too. It's a never ending cycle.
I thought they had brought 3D Touch to the iPad by now. It would be the perfect Option-Click/Right-Click! I MISS YOU 3D TOUCH
Yes, I miss it for only one function. The ability to move the cursor anywhere while typing. I catch myself pressing down on the screen trying to move the cursor almost everyday while using the iPad.
