Despite having a large pool of apps which currently use 3D Touch, there are still some features we would like to see natively included within iOS and with certain apps:

Rearrange your Control Center or change icons: We would like to have the ability to move around the quick-launch icons at the bottom of our Control Center. This would give us more control (pun intended), over our apps.

WiFi Bluetooth settings: We would like the ability to quickly select a WiFi network or Bluetooth device that we’re connected to, by long-pressing on the WiFi and Bluetooth icons within the Control Center. 

Google Maps: Long-pressing on the Apple Maps app presents us with a few functionalities and we particularly like the ability to have quick directions home.

Music – Add more options over Beats 1: Having access to the Beats 1 music station is great and so is the search functionality, but we would like a simple ‘Shuffle all’ option. 

Slack: As we use Slack quite often in the office, we would like to have the ability to 3D Touch the app in order to quick message a contact.

Changing Wallpaper: It would be a useful feature for us to be able to change our static wallpaper straight from our home screen. This would involve long-pressing on an empty space on our home screen to change the static-wallpaper.

Apple Watch: Having an Apple Watch is always useful to check notifications, but having the ability to quickly Unpair or Mark As Missing would be useful through the 3D Touch functionality of the app’s icon.

Lockscreen functionalities: We would wish being able to swipe up or down using 3D Touch on the lockscreen to expand our notifications and better still open our Control Center. This principle could also be applied to the homescreen, but finding a way to make this work without it affecting apps might currently prove tricky.
