With the help of a grid of 96 sensors that detect microscopic changes in the distance between the glass cover and the backlight, your iPhone can detect different degrees of pressure. This header feature called 3D Touch is used to show content previews and context menus in applications, as well as quick actions on application icons on the home screen.

Do you feel like the 3D Touch is forcing you to squeeze the screen too hard? In this case, iOS provides a handy guide on how to change the pressure you need to enable the feature.

How to set the 3D touch sensitivity

Step 1: Startup settings on your iPhone.

Step 2: Navigate to section General → Accessibility → 3D Touch .

Step 3: In the 3D Touch Sensitivity section, slide the sensitivity slider to change how hard you have to press the screen to activate the feature. You can choose between three pressure levels: light, medium and firm.

“Adjust the pressure required to activate 3D Touch,” says the description of the feature. “Sensitivity to light reduces the pressure required; a fixed sensitivity increases it.”

Scroll down and press the image in the “3D Touch Sensitivity Test” section to test the sensitivity level you currently have selected for features like Peek and Pop.

You can also turn the 3D Touch on and off on the same screen.
