In addition to familiar Multi-Touch gestures like Tap, Swipe, and Pinch, 3D Touch now adds a new dimension by sensing how much pressure is applied to the display. 3D Touch uses sensors that measure the distance between iPhone’s glass cover and the backlight layer and combine these with data delivered by other touch and acceleration sensors.
