The Force click feature present in 2015 MacBook demands new features in OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 beta 3. Applications can have any region on the screen to respond to both a tap and a pressurized force touch. The force touch can provide more functionality on the same scale.

Accelerators would have a different role to play, the force touch can give even more accessibility to the users in media section like fast rewind/forward. The playback time is operational to different sensitivities on the trackpad

Pressure sensitivity would allow creative applications to respond users with greater control and accuracy. The brush can be given a thicker or thinner style in response pressure sensitivity.

Drag and Drop capabilities can be enhanced like an addition of a SpringLoaded feature to the controls. This would enable users to interact to a Force click while in the amid of performing a drag, to create new folder for the drop, for instance.
