How to Enable 3D Touch on Any iPhone (JB Tweak) (Video)

Fair warning, this is still a work in progress and only works on the home screen, but still, if you want to at least have some idea of what your missing out on your simply, not the latest, iPhone, here’s a good way to experience it.

A developer has created a new JB tweak that allows you to tap and hold to use the 3D touch features throughout the homescreen at least. Combine this with the Live Photos Tweak I did a video on last week and you have a pretty good idea of what 3D Touch is like (and begin to seriously question why the hell Apple needed to add hardware for this to work on the newer iPhones when you can clearly enable tap and hold to do it on all iPhones).

Here’s how to get it and use it.

Jailbreak Your Device

First, you must be jailbroken so please head to my jailbreaking section, click the link there for your version of iOS, complete it, and return here to continue once you have the Cydia store on your phone.

Install Forcy

Next we need to install the tweak from the Cydia store by doing the following:

1. Open Cydia.

2. Tap search at the bottom right.

3. Type in Forcy and tap it when it comes up.

4. Tap install at the top right.

5. Tap confirm and wait for it to install.

6. Tap restart springboard and wait for it to restart.

Use Forcy

There are no options to configure, you can now just tap and hold on icons on the homescreen that support 3D Touch to get their quick actions.

What do you guys think about the whole 3D Touch being a hardware required feature from Apple? Anyone else calling bullshit?

    1. Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do until there is a new update for the jailbreak. You’ll have to just be patient in the meantime. Soon as one comes out I’ll do a video.

    1. What are you referring to? There shouldn’t be any emails etc. You need to jailbreak the phone then download the tweak from the Cydia store. No need to email pay or anything else. If you were asked to email or pay then you didn’t use the correct program.

      If you have IOS above 9.0.2 (9.1, 9.2, etc) then you can NOT jailbreak your phone at the time of me posting this comment until there is a new jailbreak method. Soon as there is I’ll do a video on it but until then you’ll need to be patient like the rest of us.

  1. Greetings all the way from India! First of all thank you for all the clean videos and articles. The feel and backgrounds you use are quite pleasing to the eye.Very aesthetic!! Just wanted to tell you that in such videos you should give the repo link as well.

    1. Thanks so much! As for repository links I always put them in the videos this one didn’t require a repository when I did it so that’s why it didn’t have one in the video. Thanks again!
