Craig Federighi says 3D Touch app switching will return.JPG

MacRumors reports that Apple’s software engineering head, Craig Federighi, has told a MacRumors reader that the popular 3D Touch App Switcher access gesture will be returning in a future iOS 11 update.

Replying to Adam Zahn’s email, Federighi explained that support for the gesture was only dropped temporarily due to a “technical constraint,” further details of which he didn’t elaborate on, and that it would be returning “in an upcoming iOS 11.x update.”

Replying to another question from a MacRumors reader about a possible Nightstand Mode for iPhone X, Federighi said that it was “definitely something we’ve considered. This probably makes the most sense for customers who charge their phone in a dock that tilts up the phone.”

However, Federighi did go on to say that “it’s not currently super common” for people to charge their phones in that position, so it’s possible that having thought about the idea, Apple decided not to implement it, and he made no mention of it being implemented in a future update.
