Apple is working on scaling up its 3D Touch technology for iPads and other large–screen products, but won’t have the tech ready for at least another year.
A source familiar with Apple’s plans claims that the new version of 3D Touch will be able to work across all iPhones and iPads when it eventually launches.
At the moment, 3D Touch only works on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus and, as such, cannot be scaled up to work on an iPad.
The news comes just days after it was revealed that the iPad Air 3, pegged for launch at a special event next March, will not feature 3D Touch.
The source behind this latest story says that the new version 3D Touch won’t even be ready for the iPhone 7. Instead, it appears the tech will forma core part of Apple products from 2017 onwards.
3D Touch offers users the chance to register presses as well as swipes on their iPhones, with shortcut menus making the user experience faster.
