It would be an exciting experience if you don’t need to upgrade to the latest iPhone 6s or 6s Plus and still you can enjoy one of its best features of 3D touch.

Sounds like a dream? But wake up dude! All you need to do is to download a Jailbreak tweak on your old (I mean to say “existing”) iPhone and you can enjoy this new technology.

3D Touch is a hardware thing and therefore, you cannot actually feel this feature on your existing iPhone (iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 5s and 5) running iOS 8. Thanks to Elias Limneos, a Jailbreak developer, who has developed 3D Touch-inspired tweak.

This tweak creates a virtual mock-up on your iPhone and allows you to use a long press-and-hold gesture on the screen. The tweak is named Touch 3D by Limneos, who has also uploaded a video.

You have seen in the video that Limneos has created three shortcut gestures by using this tweak; he created shortcut gestures for Phone app, Settings app and Camera app. From this video, it seems that the developer might have used Activator support to customize invoke method for creating shortcut gestures.

One more thing I want to mention here is that the developer must have been inspired by Velox, one of the first Jailbreak tweaks to launch these kinds of shortcuts. However, Touch 3D has striking similarity how Apple provides its 3D touch feature on iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.

RevealMenu is one more Cydia tweak that delivers 3D touch to earlier iPhones. There are many Cydia tweaks that mimic 3D touch of iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, but RevealMenu is different from all of them. With RevealMenu you can long press on any app to unlock the shortcut right from your home screen.

But what makes RevealMenu different from other tweaks is that, you can slide your fingers directly to shortcut option without lifting your finger from the screen. This single gesture 3D touch makes RevealMenu worth installing; compared to other 3D touch Cydia tweaks.

This post gives birth to a question: how fast is Jailbreak community in introducing tweaks that connect the older iPhones with the latest ones. Keep visiting this blog as we have come to know that Limneos is also working on another tweak that will surely change the way you use Live Photos in iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.

    None..its safe to jailbreak..even if u does,,theres a quick way flashing to original state of ur phone to claim ur warranty if u need to..risk is just how u manage to use tweaks and other things u can do while jailbreak..and theres an app that can easily remove and revert back to stock if u dont want jailbreak anylonger..

  • So when you do a jailbreak, does it interfere with the performance of other apps? What are the risks involved with a jailbreak, besides the warranty issue. Thanks.
