The launch of Apple’s 3D Touch function has been a blessing which owners of iPhone 6 and other models released since have fully embraced and never had to look back. The 3D touch function allows for users to interact with notifications and reply to messages easily. The function also now makes multi-tasking a whole lot easier, so we can see why iPhone Touch Screen Repair can be quite a costly affair & has now become a favourite among users.
On occasion though, users have reported that the function tends to act up. This could be due to a number of either hard-ware or software related issues. If you find that the function has started to act up after your phone has fallen or is on account of a water-related problem, then it’s likely that it’s a hardware issue that’s at fault. If this is the case, you may need to get professional help with getting this issue sorted out. If, however, the function is malfunctioning after a settings update, then it’s likely that the issue is software-related. In either case, it’s helpful to try these steps outlined underneath.
- Make sure that the 3D Touch option is first turned on. Just navigate over to Settings > General > Accessibility and ensure that the function is switched on.
- The 3D Touch option has 3 different pressure functions ranging from Light, Medium and finally to Firm, depending on your preference. If you find that the function doesn’t work for you, try switching between the sensitivity options to find one that works best for you. The function can be found under Settings > General > Accessibility > 3D Touch.
- Perhaps it could be on account of an app-related issue that your 3D Touch function doesn’t work. Make sure all your apps which use the 3D Touch function are updated. You can check whether all your apps are up-to-date that on the App Store, if not, a quick update can often do the trick. If you do find that the 3D function doesn’t work only on a specific app, just delete and reinstall the app.
- If you’ve tried the steps above and still find that the function doesn’t work for you, resetting your phone may help resolve this issue. You can try this by going to Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. Once you enter your passcode to confirm, it will restore your phone’s settings without erasing all your precious data.
