    1. Keyboard (spacebar) to control cursor
    2. Force touching the leftmost side of the screen to swith app

    These features make my 6 Plus feel obsolete/outdated.

    I use peek and pop pretty often.

    I've known you could use some kind of control cursor, but I don't know how it's done, and I haven't bothered to find out.

    Didn't know that thing was called Force Touch until I came in here.

    Edit: A few hours after the message above, I decided to look up the cursor. Holy crap, that's useful. When I heard something about a "cursor", I was expecting something else.

    Safari, messages, email, photos, camera, pretty much every app that has it.

    It's a great shortcut and addicting to use once you get used to it.

    I know how you feel. I always forget to reply to them & then you know what happens.

    Same here hardly ever use the 3D touch but this one thing to move the cursor hit it out of the park for me.

    Mostly peek on links.

    In tweetbot peek on Twitter threads.

    Slowly using it on email previews

    One things for sure the people who say it's the same thing as long press are way off at when comparing to the jailbreak version. Could just be the lack of haptic vibration when it pops.

    I mainly use it for:

    1) moving the cursor
    2) shortcut to my friend on the messages app icon
    3) peek

    Keyboard cursor is my #1. I also dog the shortcuts on a lot of the app icons. I have to remember to use it though.

    The app switcher gesture is a little awkward and I usually prefer double clicking the home button still.

    Still keep forgetting it exists, but now you made me think about it I have seen that this forum supports 3D press to quote or reply on any post.

    That's more of a long press that exists without 3D Touch as well.

    I was most excited about the multitask switcher when it was announced, but now that I have the phone I can never get it to work consistently.

    Peak and pop (email and Instagram) and the keyboard trackpad are serious game changers for me. Everything else is just icing. Sweet, sweet icing.

    I think you can just turn read receipts off in settings, too. Still a cool feature if you want some to know you have read their message, but not others.
