Having begun the multi-touch phenomenon with the first iPhone, Apple takes the next step in innovation by introducing 3D Touch. Along with recognizing familiar gestures, such as swipe, pinch, etc., the iPhone 6s series will also recognize force, enabling new gestures, including peek and pop.
A light press will give you a peek at the content you're interested in; continue pressing and it pops you directly into the content itself. While peeking, you can flick up for more action options, flick right for common actions like marking an email as read, or flick to the left to delete it. Third-party developers are also taking advantage of 3D Touch by providing actionable options without having to even open the app.
