After pushing Siri hard with iOS 9, Apple aims to improve 3D Touch with iOS 10. Announced at WWDC today, the latest version of Apple's mobile OS will let you use 3D Touch on your lock screen, the Control Center and even in third-party apps like Uber. Additionally, Apple is finally opening up Siri to third-party developers, which should hopefully make it a more useful virtual assistant. As usual, it'll arrive this fall around the launch of new iPhones.

While 3D Touch was a nifty addition to iOS 9 with the iPhone 6S, it seems genuinely useful in iOS 10. From your lock screen, you can press on the right side of the screen to unlock the camera quickly, or the left side to open up widgets (things like weather and recent news). And when it comes to third-party apps, you can use 3D Touch to do things like see live action from ESPN's app, or track your car by pressing down on Uber's app.
