    Hey guys, this was just my luck as I have not read this mentioned anywhere. But you can actually access the multitasker by applying a slight force on the left edge of the screen and swiping right to view or peak at all your background apps running. This made me admire iOS even more and thought I should share. Oh and this is on an iPhone 7 running beta 10.2.1 preview .

    Exactly. It was shown on stage last year when they introduced the 6S.

    Part of the default actions that has been there since the introduction of 3D Touch (back in the iPhone 6s days).

    This has been around since the iPhone 6s on ios 9

    Apple demonstrated it on stage when they revealed the iPhone 6s in 2015

    There were many threads about this as well on this site and online since apple showed this feature off.

    It's new to the OP. He was sharing his findings with others who were not aware of this. So technically, it's a new feature for those not aware that pre-existed.

    Sorry guys hadn't had an iPhone since the 3G so I'm late to the scene, just got an i7 after years with Android/Nexus.

    Don't feel too bummed. I thought the same thing when I first received my iPhone 7 Plus as I had an iPhone 6 Plus before and 3D Touch was new to me, but then scanned the forum and saw it was not a new nugget. Ah well, hope you continue to enjoy your phone!

    And this is why 3D Touch is a flop. No one ever knows where or when it actually does something. In fact my sister has had her iPhone 6S for well over a year and she only recently discovered that "something happens when i touch the icons longer"

    I didnt know you could 3d touch on the keyboard to move the cursor for months. Not intuitive at all

    I bet plenty of people don't know how to "right click" on a Mac (or perhaps what that even is), yet the functionality is hardly a flop.

    Nope. Not a new feature. An undiscovered feature or maybe an unknown feature or even a new to mean feature, but not a new feature.

    I realize there is a new trend to change the definition of a word to suit ones narrative, but I'm on a mission to correct that. And it isn't going well.

    You're correct. It isn't going well....for you. Last I checked, the thread title was created by the OP, stating what he believed to be a new feature and shared his thoughts on why he believed it was new. For those reading this thread and was not aware this feature pre-existed, then it qualifies new to them and how to use the feature.

    And if you would read further back, you would see the OP has not had an iPhone since the 3G, thus being new to him.

    Respectfully, Mission Impossible seems more appropriate for your previous post.

    I do enjoy it very much. Thank you

    And now I just learned something new from you.

    Give it a break. This feature might've been more discussed back when 6S with 3D touch was first introduced but it isn't a common topic in the iPhone 7 forums and don't expect people to go back to 6S forum/threads to understand how the i7 works. As I mentioned before I wasn't following up on progress related to 3D touch so yes it is new to me. Try not to take it hard it's not a dk.

    Thank you for putting the point across.
