With the release of new iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, Apple introduced somewhat older force touch in latest iPhone and called it 3D touch. This technology works with a dedicated pressure sensitive surface above the display panel. Here in this article we are going to guide you about how you can get the similar 3D touch feature on iPhone, iPad, or iPod touchusing Forcy Cydia tweak.
Many people are saying that it is just a gimmick and nothing new as compared to long press, which is already available in Android as well as iOS. But what people not recognize is this that long press is still available in iPhone 6S and 6S Plus.
3D touch is a completely new way of interacting with your iPhone cause you are literally applying pressure on the display to do different tasks. Do you want to know more about 3D touch? Read our detailed article here about 3D Touch technology.
When it comes down to customization in iOS, you simply cannot do much without jailbreak. As jailbreak was made available for iOS 9 by PanGu recently, a developer made a Cydia tweak to reproduce “3D Touch like” functionality on any iOS device running iOS 9 or later.
The tweak is called Forcy Cydia tweak and it allows you to reproduce 3D touch menu on your homescreen simply by swiping the app icon to up. Instead of 3D touching the app icon, you reproduce same menu with a swipe up gesture.
Frankly speaking, this gesture works just as fast as the 3D touch.
Of course there are some limitations to the Forcy jailbreak tweak, it enables this gesture only on the homescreen of your iOS 9 device, not on any links, contacts or other apps.
How to Download and Install Forcy Cydia Tweak
To install this tweak, you definitely need to have a jailbroken iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
