Would 3D touch "Crackgate" be a thing?

    All of a sudden we're suppose to press icons harder - without knowing which would respond to harder clicks. Inevitably some screens would crack, right; especially if people are pressing it wrong / hard continuously? Would there be a big surge in iPhone screen repairs?

    (You'd have thought they'd dropped shadow or something on 3D touch capable icons.)

    When LG can make a glass that flexes (LG Flex, obv), I'd be pretty confident that Apple's glass has some give to make up for the pressure. i don't think it'll be an issue.

    P.S. Not everything that goes wrong has to be a freaking "gate". Ugh.

    I'll bet they haven't thought of this.

    You should email Tim ASAP.

    they didn't think that a bigger phone could bend easier. they didnt think having the antenna where people put their hands would be an issue. dont sit there and act like they have never had an issue once the phone gets out in the public

    Well they did mention a new display glass that's supposedly the hardest in the industry. They learned their lesson with Bendgate.

    Hard is not the same as brittle, but OP is raving.

    Nope. If you used an Apple Watch you'd know that this won't be a problem. You don't have to press really hard to make it work.

    The OP2 is trying too hard. Trying to create a controversy where none exists.

    Have you never pressed an icon on your home screen before to remove it?

    You won't even think about it after you do it once.

    Will some people crack their screens and blame it on pressing too hard to activate 3D Touch?
    Absolutely

    Will someone have a demo on YouTube on Launch Day
    Without a doubt

    Just like some people claim they baby their iPhone obsessively and yet it bends, scratches, cracks, scuffs and every other problem ever conceived

    Will it really be a problem?
    Nope, not even

    Too bad that hotel wasn't called Watermyphone. At least then when these posts come up we could read about "Crackmyphone" or "Bendmyphone".

    Amen, brother. I wish mods would nuke threads with "gate" in the title.

    It has not been a problem on the apple watch, and you have to push with a pretty good amount of force.

    No.

    After using force touch on the Apple Watch, I can say... just, no.
