This is How Force Touch Will Reportedly Work on the iPhone 6s

New details have emerged revealing how Force Touch will work on the iPhone 6s, reports 9to5Mac. The iOS version of Force Touch is apparently known internally as "Orb". Rather than opening up new full screen windows to display extra controls, Force Touch on the iPhone is said to skip existing lists of options or presses.

“There is consistent usage of Force Touch across the operating system to ‘shortcut’ actions,” rather than present new options like with the Apple Watch, according to a source.

Here's some examples:
● Let's say you've found a point of interest in Maps, a Force Touch on the destination would immediately begin turn-by-turn directions.
● In the Music app, a Force Touch on a track will present common actions. For example, a Force Touch on a song will bring up a menu with options to add song to playlist or save for offline listening. Similar to a press of the button on the right side of each track.
● Force Touching an app icon brings up a shortcut menu that can take you to specific areas of an app. For example, a Force Touch on the phone icon might bring up an option to go to the voicemail tab or a Force Touch on the News icon brings up an option to go to Favorites or For You.
● In Safari, Force Touching a link will bring up a preview of that webpage. Force Touch on an address or contact brings up a map preview or contact card, and Force Touch on a word brings up its definition.

On the new iPhone, Force Touch gestures reportedly function in one of three ways:

Force Touch will be represented in three ways: no additional user interface as with the subtle integration on the new MacBooks, a user interface that appears surrounding the finger where the Force Touch gesture is conducted, or a shortcut list toward the bottom of the display akin to a typical options list across iOS.

Haptic feedback given to users is described as "nice" and "consistent" across the system.

Apple is reportedly planning to open up access to the gesture to third party developers. In addition, the rumored 12.9-inch iPad Pro will also gain Force Touch support. That iPad could debut alongside iOS 9.1.

Apple is expected to unveil new iPhones, a new Apple TV, and perhaps updated iPads on September 9th. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.
