Facebook Expands 3-D Touch Options for iPhone 6S, 6S Plus

Facebook users accessing the social network’s flagship iOS application via the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus can now “peek and pop.”

Mashable reported that the latest update for users with those two devices expands upon the 3-D Touch features that were introduced last October, which allowed users to access a quick action menu from their home screens, offering them the options of writing posts, uploading photos or videos or taking photos or videos.

According to Mashable, the update allows users to take advantage of 3-D Touch features directly from News Feed. Pressing lightly on Timelines, linkspages, groups or photos will bring up previews of those respective elements, while increasing the pressure will open them.

Facebook told Mashable the update began rolling out to “a small number” of iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus users Thursday, and it will be expanded “in the coming months.”

Readers: Have you used the 3-D Touch features on the iPhone 6S or iPhone 6S Plus? What are your thoughts?
