Many times the Apple company takes note of users’ requests to take up things they demand. In the second beta version of iOS 11.1, Apple has reintroduced the 3D Touch gesture for applications on 3D Touch equipped devices.
The feature was ” intentionally removed ” during the iOS 11 beta testing process and was not reimplemented before the official release of iOS 11, but Apple’s chief software engineer, Craig Federighi, promised that it would be added again in a future iOS 11 update , as it has been.
In an email to an Apple user, Federighi said that the feature needed to be temporarily removed in iOS 11 due to technical issues . Unfortunately we had to temporarily stop supporting this feature due to a technical limitation. We will bring it back in a future iOS 11.x update. Thanks (and sorry for the inconvenience) !”
The gesture, first implemented in iOS 9, allows users with a 3D Touch-compatible iPhone, from iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus , on the left edge of the screen to have the application switcher appear.
When it was withdrawn from the beta version, many iPhone users were disappointed by this disappearance, as it is a very suitable method for switching between applications with a single gesture . Without this gesture, the only way to open the app switch on an iPhone is by double-clicking the Home button.
iOS 11.1 beta 2 is currently available to developers , but a public beta should be available as soon as this week. We are still in the process of beta testing, there is a lot of polishing to be done, so it is not yet clear when a public version of iOS 11.1 will be seen. When it is available we will let you know as soon as possible .
