Apple Says 3D Touch App Switcher Gesture Will Return in Future Update


Here’s the email:

Question from Zahn: Could we at least make the 3D Touch app switch gesture an option in iOS 11 so that I could retain the ability to switch apps that way instead of having to double tap the home button?

Response from Federighi: Hi Adam,

We regretfully had to temporarily drop support for this gesture due to a technical constraint. We will be bringing it back in an upcoming iOS 11.x update.

Thanks (and sorry for the inconvenience)!

Previously, with any 3D Touch iPhone running iOS 9 or 10, users could make a long press on the right side of the screen and drag left to activate the app switcher. The same feature can be accessed by double-clicking the Home button.
