Unlike other iPhones, the new Apple iPhone SE does not come support for Haptic Touch (or 3D Touch) for notifications. This means that you can’t hard-press or long-press a notification to have your iPhone display it in more detail and display other quick actions like archiving an email and replying to a text message. In this guide, we will show you an alternative to this and how to use it.
How to Use Haptic Touch for Notifications on iPhone SE (2020) (Alternative)
- First off, swipe down from the top of the screen of your iPhone. This will open up the notification center.
- Instead of long-pressing or hard-pressing the notification, swipe left on it.
- Now, tap on View. This will display the notification in detail as well as any quick options available for it.
Now, any notification actions offered by the app will be displayed along with a richer preview.
This is pretty much the same thing that appears when you long-press a notification on an iPhone with Haptic Touch. The options that will be displayed depend on the app.
Now, while this method isn’t as fast as long-pressing or hard-pressing a notification, the options are still pretty easily accessible.
You can also quickly disable notifications by swiping. To turn off a notification, simply swipe left over the notification, and then tap on “Manage” instead of View. In the menu that appears next, tap on the “Turn Off” option to stop seeing notifications from the app that sent the notification.
