Called '3D Touch', the new application allows iPhone 6s and 6s Plus users to hard press the app icon that will offer a handful of shortcuts, reports stated.

"The addition is one of the more highly anticipated rollouts of third-party support for '3D Touch', a new user interaction that's something of a spinoff of the similar 'Force Touch' option on Apple Watch," the report added.

'3D Touch' is another gesture you can use with your device for faster access to apps.

Facebook-owned Instagram was among the first to offer '3D Touch' support.

WhatsApp, Messenger, Moments, Groups and other popular Facebook applications are yet to support the new interaction.
