All native iOS apps are designed to support the new 3D Touch actions. The new iPhones also have a new gesture to switch between apps, pressing on the left side, to bring the other activities running on the devices to the screen.

Third-party apps will also be available from the launch of the new iPhones, with 3D Touch support.

The new iPhones feature 12-megapixel iSight cameras, with improvements in color capture, noise reduction and depth recognition of images. Panoramas can be photographed with up to 63 megapixels and footage can be taken in 4K, at 30 frames per second.

In addition to photos, Apple created a new feature for the new cameras, called Live Photos. In addition to the static picture, the cameras can retain fractions of a second from the moment they were taken, making them move quickly remembering that moment, both in the photo gallery, as in third-party apps, and even on Macs and iPads. On the Apple Watch, they can be used live as faces for the watch.
