3D Touch Technology to Come to iOS 8 iPhone
Does it sound fun to have 3D Touch technology iOS 8 feature? iOS 9 iPhone 6s and 6s Plus will get the Force Touch option however if you have an older model you won’t be able to use it even if you upgrade to the upcoming Apple iOS 9 platform. At the same time you are able to bring 3D Touch to iOS 8 iPhone.
You need to be running iOS 8.4 or earlier 8 firmware version since you have to be jailbroken in order to use iOS 8 3D Touch feature [it is based on Force Touch technology]. Cydia developers are working on the special tweak that should bring the new interesting feature to older Apple gadgets.
If you are already jailbroken you should be careful with what you download and install. Use only trusted sources otherwise you might be forced to restore to iOS 8.4.1 or future iOS 9 and lose the jailbreak. Hackers are surely trying to find new exploits and untether this platform but they might need more time to succeed.
Dev Elias Limneos wants to bring 3D Touch option to iOS 8 gadgets [watch his video on YouTube]. It won’t be exactly what Apple adds to iPhone 6s and 6s Plus [for example, your phone will not distinguish between light and hard taps]. Still the new Cydia tweak should add 3D Touch shortcuts and actions to your phone. This way you’ll be able to click on the Phone application icon and place a phone call or use other shortcuts to make the experience better.
Just look at the soon release Limneos will offer and install it on your iPhone if you are jailbroken. This source is trusted and iOS 8 3D Touch shortcuts might look cute and nice on the older iPhone 5, 4S or other model.
