The screen on your iPhone 7 is very versatile, and can respond to your touch in many ways. It can even gauge the pressure that you are applying when you tap a region on the screen, and it can perform different actions based on the varying levels of pressure that you use. This is a setting called 3D Touch, and it adds a significant amount of versatility to the way that you interact with your apps.
But you may find that 3D Touch is making it difficult for you to perform the actions on your iPhone that you need to perform, and that you simply don’t use the 3D Touch features enough to make the inconvenience worthwhile. Fortunately it is something that you can disable if you would like. Our guide below will show you where to find the 3D Touch option in iOS 10 so that you can turn it off completely.
