1) Middle Thumb Wake
Sleep button or Unregistered Fingers are great suggestions for waking your phone. But I think the easiest adjustment we can make is to simply use the middle of your thumb. It’s still the same gesture but just an inch further.

2) Force Touch Highlighting
While “Force Touch Keyboard for Cursor Mode” isn’t new, what I haven’t seen mentioned is when you “Double Force Touch” the keyboard.

If you double tap while force touching the keyboard (don’t actually lift your finger) then it activates a cursor highlight mode to select blocks of text.

3) Force Touch Damage?
Will the amount of constant pressure on our screens result in damage? Im just curious if you know if it’s humanly possible for someone to crack iPhone glass with finger pressure. And That makes me question if Force Touch will go to the iPad because heavy pressure on a 13” screen seems like a potential problem.
