    this is a interesting topic.. without knowing how it actually feels I did wonder how it would different from a long touch as previously mentioned. Like is it going to be varied results on how hard you press or can a hard press be firm and semi soft? see what I'm saying? like how hard do you have to press. They claimed its natural.. I can't wait until next friday to find out. The one thing I learned in the past is apple most the time perfects this type of thing.. anyone remember the blackberry storm where the screen was a button it ended up being a flop.. just hope this does not turn into that which I don't think it will

    3D Touch is the beauty of Apple and its vision. They introduce a feature that seems subtle, sometimes insignificant. And it becomes a major feature that many fine irreplaceable. I have found this to be true so mNy times with Apple products. I thought this about the iPad. Just thought that it was a bigger iPhone. And it is just a bigger iPhone and I love it. It is my favorite device. I thought this about the Lightning connector. Didn't see what made it so special. Then I realized that I can plug my phone in without looking to see if it is the right side up or not. And the charging port doesn't break like with other smartphones. The home button, Touch ID, non removable battery, no micro sd slot, Siri, etc. at some point I thought all of these things were underwhelming. And today, all of these things make my Apple experience so amazing.

    The crazy thing about this topic is that back in 2010 my HTC evo had haptic feedback for typing, sometimes I miss it. I think it wouldn't take much for Apple to include it because now on iOS 9 there is a haptic feedback on the screen when using Siri.
    IF Apple allows developers to access haptic controls we may see a third party keyboard that gives feedback. It would be a nice feature, and you could turn it off if not needed.

    I think the 3D Touch looks awesome, and I'm sure it's already been allowed through developers applications? Which is good, we had to wait 6 months for Apple Watch

    Force touch has been disappointing on my macbook; I agree. The most I use it for is the dictionary.

    I wish more of the in-crowd people were subject to PUPPAH.

    Agreed, it's practically useless on my MacBook. It looks to be more useful on the iPhone, at least in the videos I've seen.

    None of my devices support it, but it does look useful in theory--almost like a right click.

    First of all Apple done a lot a research and development before they released the 3D Touch version of the iPhone 6s and I am excited to try out the technology.

    I ordered a new 6s 64 in rose gold and I can't wait until it gets here. I have been more then satisfied with my iPhone 6 64 which has performed flawlessly, so the next generation should be great product just like its predecessors.

    I really think the iPhone 7 is going to be disappointing. With it's new look, new features and slightly better battery life, I'm not impressed.

    That being said, I won't knock it until I try it. Does it peak my interest? Yes. Am I overwhelmingly excited over it? No. Will it become a useful feature? I'm sure in some cases it will, in others not so much. But all the videos I've seen (and I've seen a dozen or so) don't really do it justice. Not only that, seeing as it's only useful (at the moment) on just native apps, it will be limited. But I'm sure the app makers will follow, as they always do.

    Light hold onto your banking app, insert a PIN and you've got account balanced
    Hard hold onto the same app, insert a PIN and you can transfer funds

    Light hold onto Alien Blue, options to pull up front page or a set location
    Hard hold on the same app and you can choose to go to a specific sub

    Light hold onto Microsoft Word, a quick list of recent documents you can open
    Hard hold on the same, you can create, edit or delete something

    The possibilities are endless when you really think about it. You can light/hard press alerts on the main screen, alarms can be either snoozed or turned off, settings can be changed on the fly. It goes on and on and on.

    So in conclusion my point is give it time and at the very least wait until you have the phone in your hands before making a FINAL decision.
