Facebook for iOS Earns More 3D Touch Powers
Facebook has updated its iOS app and added more 3D Touch features to the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. The latest version brings peek and pop functions into the main app itself, where users will be able to glance at "web links, profiles, pages, groups, events, photos, profile pictures, and cover photos," according to the company. The app already supports several 3D Touch-based actions from the home screen, such as updating user status or posting a picture. Facebook is exploring how else it might use 3D Touch, and plans to add more features over time. Facebook is free to download from the iTunes App Store.
