The iPhone XR does not have 3D Touch, but uses something called the Haptic Touch. It offers almost the same features and is now an exclusive iPhone XR. How to set it up.
If you are new to the iPhone XR, you may not notice that you have Haptic Touch and you would not be the first. Haptic Touch is the iPhone XR 3D touch replacement device that most iPhone owners have played with and then forgot.
What is Haptic Touch?
Haptic Touch acts as a right-click, allowing iPhone XR owners to activate menus and buttons that would normally be unavailable. For example, if you enable Haptic Touch for notification, additional notification management options will be displayed. Another example of where Haptic Touch can be helpful is the Control Center, where users can touch and hold an icon for more detailed control over a feature.
To alert users that Haptic Touch has been activated, iOS generates a small vibration to emulate a click.
Differences between 3D Touch and Haptic Touch
The differences between the two are relatively small, with the implementation of the two functions being the main difference. While 3D Touch requires firm pressure on the iPhone's display, Haptic Touch holds it down until they feel a haptic response.
The differences between Haptic Touch and Haptic Touch continue to vary. Mostly everything that works with 3D Touch is also possible with Haptic Touch, two exceptions. First, you can not access app-based shortcuts from the Home screen. Second, Haptic Touch does not support "Peek & Pop," a feature that previews images to URLs. That's the biggest failure of the two, but you pay your money, the choice is yours.
If you're an iPhone XR owner, you should at least take Haptic Touch for a round.
Setting up Haptic Touch
If you're new to Haptic Touch or a 3D Touch veteran, open Settings to get the ball rolling and tap General.
Then tap on "Accessibility". It's not the obvious place for such an option, but it's true.
To access the Haptic Touch options, tap the entry of the same name.
The last screen allows you to change the duration of Haptic Touch activation while offering a test button to test the change without leaving the settings. Oddly enough, Apple has decided not to disable Haptic Touch (as with 3D Touch)
If you accidentally turn on Haptic Touch, set the Touch Duration to "Slow" and see if this is an improvement.
