The iPhone SE 2020 has an important lack and it is not a bug — 2022

we know wellHow often do you have to format an iPhone?and of course devices like the brand new iPhone SE 2020 do not fall into the pools as they were launched on the market at the end of last week. There are already thousands of users who have this device to their credit and beyond the performance they are obtaining, several people have reported a bug in this device that is common to all and that weakens one of the most interesting possibilities of iOS: the quick accesses in notifications with 3D touch. Below we tell you more details.

No features added by 3d Touch in notifications

It has been almost 5 years since Apple launched the iPhone 6s with an interesting novelty that went somewhat unnoticed, but little by little something routine has been done in our iOS devices. We refer to3D touch, which is achieved through a specialized engine to detect the level of pressure exerted on the screen for those devices that range from the iPhone 6s to the iPhone XS. In the iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max this engine was removed, although the gestures were maintained through software.

The iPhone SE 2020 is another of the terminals that achieves contextual menus and 3D Touch previews through software, detecting the time the screen is pressed. However, in this one the possibility of finding those gestures in the notification menu. In other words, it is not possible to access a quick reply to a message, delete an email or anything similar of all that can be done from this place thanks to 3D Touch.

I received my SE yesterday and quickly realized that Haptic Touch does not support notifications. I don't see this reported anywhere, I haven't seen a review that mentions it, no video I watched mentioned it. Haptic Touch works for peek and pop, and on icons on the home screen, but if it's on the lock screen or Notification Center and you're trying to long-press an email to file or a text to quickly reply, you're out of luck. .

This bug will not be fixed in future versions of iOS

There are some bugs that despite not being intentional appear on numerous devices, as is the case with this failure in the 3D Touch of the iPhone SE. However, there are indications that this will not be solved in future versions of the operating system, but will remain. This is stated by Matthew Panzarino, a specialized journalist for TechCrunch.

We understand that this is an additional functionality that perhaps not everyone takes advantage of, but it is still a notable lack considering that the rest of the devices that update to iOS 13 have it, regardless of its features or that they have the Taptic Engine or not. Thus, those users who have this device or are thinking of acquiring it, will have to carry out these actions through other methods such as swipe notification and click on View, being an effective alternative but not as intuitive and fast. However, in the end, this does not make it an ideal device for many people, to the point of being a greatiPhone for seniors.
