Force Touch makes early iPhone appearance in concept video

Force Touch

Given that we’ve already seen how Force Touch is implemented on the Apple Watch and MacBook, this neat conceptual video shows some of the many ways we may use the technology in new iPhones.

Created by Cult of Mac reader Maximilian Kiener, the video shows how the iPhone’s Control Center could be modified so a light tap would toggle features like Airplane Mode and Wi-Fi, while a sustained hard tap brings up the Settings menu.

Check it out below:

“I created the prototype like most of my other prototypes in JavaScript, HTML and CSS,” Kiener says. “I then just open it in Safari and save it to the home screen. Then I can let it run in fullscreen.”

KGI Securities’ Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has previously claimed Force Touch on the iPhone 6s will be a bit different from the implementations users have currently seen. Instead of detecting pressure from users’ fingers, it will monitor “the contact area on which the finger touches the screen to decide how big the pressure is.”
