    Is anyone struggling with the keyboard now that one can't mover the cursor on keyboards around (stock or third party) because 3D touch is no longer a thing. Doesn't the keyboard now suck?

    It still works just as 3D Touch did. You just don’t force press, you long press.

    True, but you have to long press on the space bar as opposed to just anywhere on the keyboard like 3D Touch.

    I thought I’d miss 3D Touch but i guess i feel like the long press implementation works great. I still find myself pressing and feeling the same effect.

    Yes, but you have to start with the space bar.

    You can’t initiate it anywhere on the keyboard besides the space bar. After that you can scroll anywhere on the keyboard.

    Well then my iPhone is broken because I just started from the keys, not space bar and I was able to. Now maybe I’m ignorant but I have the XS Max. Is this a Pro thing or iOs13 thing? Sorry if it’s the XS Pro thing.

    I never fully used 3D touch but for stuff I did like clearing notifications or moving stuff on home screens etc. I had to stop myself trying to do it on the 11 Pro last night vs my X. I swear I'm going to break the screen accidentally by trying to press till I get a 3D touch haptic feedback thing. Working on training myself to do Android style long presses again instead of pushing.

    Same here. I'm trying to train myself to stop force pressing the screen.
    With the force touch it happened right away. Now there is a delay before the menu pops up.

    iPhone 11 and up thing. XS variants still have 3D Touch. These 11’s use the poor man’s version of 3D Touch (haptic).

    Edit: Should also mention this is the case for the XR as well.

    The only thing I’ve noticed that’s different between 3D Touch and the long press on iOS 13 is that long pressing the phone icon for instance to bring up my favorites, is a tad bit slower than on my iPhone XS Max. I never used the stock keyboard before always used swiftkey and then Gboard neither of which allowed you to scroll around that I was aware of. I’m digging the stock keyboard with dark mode.

    Another minor annoyance with the removal of 3D Touch is the method for rearranging/deleting apps from the home screen. Previously, you could force press to provide app options from the home screen and long press to rearrange/delete apps. Now, it's a long press to bring up the options instead of going right to deleting them. Then you have to select, "Rearrange apps". It's an extra step due to no longer having the ability to simply long press and do the same thing immediately.

    Unless I'm pressing wrong, this has been my experience. I enjoyed the force press options as a separate thing and the long press to rearrange/delete as a separate thing. Combining the two adds steps depending on what you want to do.

    Not enough to make me dislike the phone. But just a requirement of retraining how I use my device based on the removal of a feature Apple gave us and then took away lol.

    You don’t have to choose rearrange apps. You can keep holding past that and the icons will begin to wiggle like they always did.
