iOS 10 has seen a 3D Touch overhaul and frankly, I’m a fan. There’s just so much more you can do with 3D Touch now. While a lot of it are little things, they’re little things that end up shaving off seconds from your total interaction. Case in point, the new 3D Touch gesture for controlling app downloads.
