3D Touch is a new convenient feature introduced in the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. With it, the system recognizes the intensity of pressing and allows you to bring interaction with the device to a whole new level. However, to get used to the new product, it takes time, and at first from accidental clicks there is no escape. Reducing the likelihood of the latter is easy with iOS settings.
The "Universal Access" menu has long turned into a place to place various interesting options that allow you to customize the system interface to your liking. One of these options is the sensitivity of 3D Touch, which allows you to adjust how strong the pressure should be for the function to work. This is done in a few simple steps.
- Go to the "General" section of the "Settings" menu of the iOS device
- Select the subsection "Universal Access"
- Open the item "3D Touch"
In the menu that appears, you can select the pressure level necessary to enable 3D Touch. The system offers three options: weak, medium and strong, if you often call the option randomly, the latter may be an acceptable option. In the same menu, you can test the operation of 3D Touch at a selected level, as well as completely disable the function by moving the first switch to the off position. However, this is hardly advisable - in my opinion, 3D Touch accelerates the work with the device by an order of magnitude, and for your humble servant she managed to turn into an excellent assistant for every day.
We hope this tip helps make the iOS interface even more convenient. Have a nice touch!

How to set up 3D Touch (Haptic Touch) on iPad
It is curious that this section with the settings for the duration of pressing can be found only on the iPhone, but it was not in the operating system for tablets. This position of the company looks a little strange, because now for working with 3D Touch gestures, devices do not need a special hardware module that responds to heavy clicks. Now the technology can be considered software, similar to the Haptic Touch in the iPhone XR.
