    My 2013 MBP has it but my 2015 MBP doesn't have the option, instead of three finger drag I have to lightly click the trackpad and drag it, which is fine, just had to get used to it.

    I thought it didn't work but you just have to enable it in accessibility.

    I'll never understand why Apple has been modifying gestures in each OS X release. The set in Snow Leopard was already complete, no reason to modify it, except perhaps that the three-finger drag should be always enabled by default and that the slight touch should also be default. Always. But, with these two exceptions, all modifications done in each OS X release had been an annoyance, having to waste some minutes looking for where Apple hide the stuff. I'll never understand this.

    Most annoying is that in OS X installer and logonscreen you can't change gestures.

    Yeah, must have been when they added the Force Touch Trackpad. I swapped my iMac for a 2015 MBP and saw that the 3 finger option was missing from Trackpad menu in Settings. This is in Yosemite as well. Didn't know about the Accessibility move until I read this post.

    I'd die if they removed Three-Finger Drag, or probably just stay on Yosemite until I actually did die.

    So!
    If iPhone 6s and plus add force touch screen support, what would happen for them to change gestures used to do from long time ago?
    I mean, would they change some gestures for force touch screen exclusively?
    Well.........
