    Twitter rolling out landscape support to iPhone 6 Plus users




    In yet another staggered feature rollout, Twitter has begun enabling full landscape support for its iOS app on the iPhone 6 Plus. Like with many of Apple’s bundled applications, Twitter app users on the larger, 5.5-inch iPhone can navigate their Timelines, Tweet, and Direct Message in landscape mode…

    This mode allows users to view past message threads while replying to a current thread for example. However, especially in the Timeline view, the application does not take full advantage of the extra space in landscape mode. As this landscape view has not been enabled for all users, it is possible that Twitter will tweak and improve the feature before it debuts it for everyone.

    How to Change 3D Touch Pressure Sensitivity on iPhone 6S




    The new iPhone 3D Touch display detects the level of pressure placed on the screen and, depending on the app, action, or home screen icon, offers different responses and interactions. These “peak” and “pop” features are throughout iOS and offer shortcuts of sorts to perform various functions, and they’re really a great feature of the iPhone 6S lineup. Using 3D Touch takes a little bit of practice, particularly in regard to applying the correct amount of screen pressure to get the intended action, but one way to greatly improve the 3D Touch experience is to manually adjust the touch screen pressure sensitivity required to activate the various features.

    iPhone users can easily change the amount of screen pressure required to activate 3D Touch, but because the setting is going to be unique to each person and how they use the feature, you’ll want to test out the various levels of pressure required with the handy adjustment ‘sensitivity test’ area to determine if the settings are appropriate for your needs.


    How to Adjust 3D Touch Screen Pressure Sensitivity

    This obviously requires an iPhone with a 3D Touch display, whether that’s an iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus, other models will not have this setting available:

    Open the Settings app in iOS and go to “General” then to “Accessibility”
    Go to “3D Touch” and locate the “3D Touch Sensitivity” portion of the settings, the slider below this is what you’ll want to change to fit your preferences, pick one of the following:
    Light — a soft amount of screen pressure activates 3D Touch peak, and a slightly more firm amount of pressure activates 3D Touch pop
    Medium — the default level of pressure sensitivity for 3D Touch displays
    Firm — a notably harder amount of screen pressure is required to activate 3D Touch peak and pop







    Next scroll down to the “3D Touch Sensitivity Test” area and press at varying degrees on the image, the initial 3D Touch press will ‘peak’ on the image, and a harder press will ‘pop’ the image

    When satisfied, leave Settings as usual and try the effect elsewhere in iOS







    If you find yourself activating 3D Touch when you don’t always want to, you’ll probably want to use the “Firm” option, whereas if you find the required pressure is too great, using the “Light” feature is ideal.

    This is really largely a matter of personal preference, but it also depends on what you’re using to activate the touch screen, if you use a case on the iPhone, and your general usage patterns, and whether or not you use a finger, toe, stylus, or other pointing device.

    My personal preference is for the “Light” setting but when demonstrating the feature to a friend they found it way too easy to activate, so they strongly preferred the Firm setting. Try it out yourself and see what works for you, you can always make another change again by returning to 3D Touch settings.

    There’s finally a solution that lets you use the iPhone 6s Plus with one hand




    I wrote about my time with Apple’s iPhone 6s Plus back in October, and not much has changed since then. With the iPhone 6s as my main phone now, I still miss some things about the Plus version – mainly that big gorgeous display and the optical image stabilization that helps improve image and video quality. I use my smartphone far too much with one hand to keep the Plus though, and since publishing that post I’ve corresponded with dozens of people who feel the same way.

    Well, if you’re willing to do a bit of tweaking, there’s now a solution that will let you keep your Plus-sized iPhone and actually use it comfortably with one hand.

    iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone 6 Plus owners may have just found their new favorite app, and it’s called OneHandWizard. Unfortunately, I have good news and bad news.

    The good news is that OneHandWizard delivers on its promise, making the iPhone 6 Plus and 6s Plus much easier to use with one hand. In fact, it actually manages to make these huge phones comfortable to use with one hand. But the bad news is that you’ll need to jailbreak your handset in order to install the app.

    Here’s how it works: on a standard iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s or 6s Plus, a double-touch on the home button triggers what Apple calls “Reachability.” It’s a terrific feature that temporarily shifts the entire display downward so you can easily reach things that are normally too far to touch. In the past, we’ve called Reachability the single most important trick iPhone owners need to know.

    With OneHandWizard installed, Reachability is replaced by a new feature that shrinks the entire screen down to a preconfigured size and places it in the bottom corner of the display. This way, for as long as you want, you’ll be able to reach every corner of your display without having to shift your grip or use a second hand. Then, when you want to go back to the standard view, just double-touch the home button again and you’re done.


    A video from YouTube user myjailbreakmovies that shows OneHandWizard in action is embedded below, and the app can be downloaded from the Cydia store by following the link on the OneHandWizrard website.
