With the release of iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, we have seen lots of changes in hardware and one of them is 3D touch. If you already got your hands on the iPhone 6s, you might have experienced the 3D touch feature on your device. But the users with older iPhone models in their pockets couldn’t find a way to experience the latest feature introduced by Apple in iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.
Although, the feature is not available in the older iPhone models, a developer has found a way to experience the 3D touch on all iPhones installed with iOS 8. It’s possible with Force Touch Activator tweak which was released a couple of days back in BigBoss repo of Cydia store.

How Does the Force Touch Activator Works?
At times, the 3D touch might not work perfectly with this tweak as the device requires pressure sensitive screen and it is not present in the older models of iPhone. So to eliminate this problem, the Force Touch Activator tweak uses your finger’s radius to sense the touch. The more area of your finger is on the iPhone’s screen, it will quickly sense the gesture.
This tweak might impress many as it brings a new feature to your iPhone but frankly speaking, it did not impress us very much. The 3D touch is not accurate as seen in the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. But for those who want something new on their older devices, Force Touch Activator Cydia tweak is worth giving a try; at least it can give you one shortcut on your screen by long pressing it.
How to Use Force Touch Activator?
As you all know that this was a new tweak released recently and there are many users who are still not aware of how to use the Force Touch Activator tweak on iPhone. If you too are one of them, you need to follow the below given steps to make this tweak work:
- First thing you need to do is install the Force Touch Activator Cydia tweak on your iPhone from here.

- It is now possible to assign anyone of the actions in the activator for the 3D touch, say, for example, compose message or launch media player.
