How to Customize Your iPhone 6s’ Sensitivity to 3D Touch

3D Touch is a new way to interact with your iPhone’s display. It’s only available on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. It allows you to perform different actions in iOS based on how firmly you press on the screen. However, 3D Touch may require a press that is too hard or too light for some users. Luckily, Apple included options to customize the way it responds to your touch, so you can adjust it to your preference.

Adjusting 3D Touch

Customizing 3D Touch on your iPhone is easy. Just follow these steps in the Settings app: tap Settings, select General, choose Accessibility, and then tap 3D Touch.

Now you’re in the new 3D Touch settings. If you don’t like 3D Touch or find it’s getting in the way of your normal usage, you can turn it off entirely. Just tap the switch to turn it off, and your iPhone will not recognize or act upon extra force when touching the display.

To adjust 3D Touch sensitivity, use the slider. By default, it’s set to medium. If you slide it to the left for light sensitivity, it will require less pressure to trigger a 3D Touch action like Peek or Pop. On the flip side, sliding over to firm sensitivity means you’ll have to press harder to activate 3D Touch.

In my experience, light sensitivity works best for me. I was annoyed by the pressure required for 3D Touch on my iPhone 6s when I first got it, so I keep the setting on Light.
