How to get Peek and Pop Feature on Older iPhones Running iOS 9?


The new feature in iPhone 6s is peek and pop. meaning, you can peek into the app, messages, look into it and then pop (open) it. It lets you be productive by taking a look inside the content fast. Actually, in 6s and 6s plus, this feature is made possible with, force touch support, by measuring the pressure at which you touch the screen.

For example in the messages app, you can peek the message and reply, forward or delete from there itself by swiping up. How cool is that?

This feature by default is not supported by older iPhones like 6, 5s, 5, and 4s running on iOS 9. Hopefully, there’s a great Cydia tweak that jailbroken devices may use to get the all new peek and pop feature on their iPhones.
