How to Use Peek and Pop with 3D Touch on iPhone 6s/6s Plus

Prior to their release, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus had created much sensation among users with 3D Touch feature. After the launch of two smartphones, people have gone crazy about many functions of 3D Touch.

Apart from adjusting touch sensitivity, home screen actions, and disabling 3D Touch, this feature offers two other important functions: Peek and Pop.

If you want to see a preview of any message or email, or if you need to jump into the weblinks, Peek and Pop can help you a great deal. Basically, these two features save your time as you don’t have to open the full app on the screen. Once you open the Peek, the action will blur other apps on the screen and the selected app or link will be highlighted.
