iOS 10 Will Allow You To Prioritize App Downloads Using 3D Touch
Apple’s 3D Touch was introduced in last year’s iPhone 6s and the 6s Plus. However, it wasn’t perfected for stuff that the company could potentially implement in the future. Mainly, the restrictions were due to its iOS 9 compatibility, that allowed it to achieve less than what we can do with the technology in iOS 10. Now, as Apple moved on to announcing its forthcoming firmware at the 2016 WWDC event, it is undoubtedly designed to take better advantage of the 3D Touch. Seemingly, Apple has added a new feature in iOS 10, that allows users to make use of the 3D Touch to prioritize app downloads.
Prioritize App Downloads Using 3D Touch In iOS 10
3D Touch is deeply integrated with the operating system, allowing system and third party apps to provide access to frequently used options and quick actions. In the same manner, if you happen to have a lot of app updates piled, waiting to be installed, you can simply 3D Touch on the app icon and select ‘Prioritize Download’ option. What this will do is easy, it will plainly make sure that it downloads first.
It’s not a hardcore feature that users have on their wishlists but it sounds pretty handy at times when you have an ample apps waiting to be installed or updated. This feature ensures that a specific app is given the first priority to be downloaded before the others in line. If you happen to have limited Wi-Fi access at any time of your routine, you can simply prioritize app downloads for a specific app before waiting for the pile to clear.
However, at this specific point in time, only iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are open to the feature. This is because only the latest iPhones feature 3D Touch technology. However, it could be that this feature is limited for the iPhone 6s in the first beta of iOS 10. Probably, Apple would add support for iPhone 6, 6 Plus and other iOS 10 compatible iPhones in the next beta via the Setting menu.
iOS 10 boasts a bevy of new additions ranging from the lock screen layout and design changes to system integrated features. The new operating system was long over due from Apple in terms of design and layout changes.
