You may have noticed that your iPhone can react differently depending upon how hard you press on the screen. This feature is called 3D Touch, and it provides you with some additional options for interacting with your apps.
But becoming comfortable with 3D Touch and using it naturally can be difficult, and you might decide that it is simply easier to disable 3D Touch and use your iPhone without it. Our steps below will show you where to find the setting that can turn off the 3D Touch option on your iPhone 7.

Step 1: Open the Settings menu.
Step 2: Scroll down and select the General option.
Step 3: Select the Accessibility option.
Step 4: Scroll down and tap the 3D Touch button.
