3D Touch enhancements
11 Applying 3D Touch to a folder on an iPhone’s Home screen reveals an option to rename that folder. When you tap that command, the folder opens with its name wholly selected so you can over-type it immediately. That’s two taps fewer than it takes to do this on devices that lack 3D Touch. 12 When a folder shows a badge notification, you don’t need to go digging around inside it to find the responsible app. Just apply 3D Touch to the folder and its Quick Actions will list apps inside that have notifications waiting for you. 13 Downloaded a cool app and want to tell someone about it? Save yourself the time of searching the App Store to share a link to it. Just 3D Touch its Home screen icon instead, choose the Share command from its Quick Actions, then pick a method from the Share sheet.
14 Concerned about your mobile data usage? Apply 3D Touch to the Settings app’s icon in iOS 10 for a shortcut to the Mobile Data page, where you can monitor and manage it, including Personal Hotspot. 15 Save yourself a couple of taps when retrospectively adding a time or location to a Reminders item by simply applying 3D Touch to it and picking the desired kind. 16 Some apps show a summary and extra shortcuts when you 3D Touch their Home screen icon. For example, Reminders shows timed items, Calendar shows upcoming events and alarms, and Maps details traffic conditions to where it expects you’ll go next. Tapping Add Widget at the top right adds this to Today view; but consider how many you want to add, in case that view becomes too crammed, and so less useful.
