Now, you no longer have to unlock your iPhone to reply to any notification or message. Simply 3D Touch a notification and reply it right from the Lock screen. Really, a lot has changed with the arrival of iOS 10.
Are you willing to use interactive notifications on your iPhone powered by the latest iOS version? Follow this quick guide to know how it works!

Note: Only iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are equipped with 3D Touch.
Step #1. When you receive any notification, simply tap and hold on the message to activate 3D Touch.
