The only one I can think of is if you use Firefox on your computer or other devices you can sync your bookmarks/tabs. I use Chrome on my Mac and have Chrome installed on my iPhone for this reason, though I still use Mobile Safari for 99.9% of my iPhone web browsing because of its integration with iOS.
There are some things you can do in Chrome or some other browsers that don't work in Safari. For example, using YouTube in Chrome you can make it so it will play anywhere else in your phone as Music does. Doesn't work in Safari.
iOS 9.3 enables 3D Touch quick actions for some existing stock apps, including App Store, Weather, Health, Settings, and yes, even the Compass. Need to make sure something is perfectly level and in a hurry? Now you’ll be able to reach the level feature of the Compass app with both celerity and style.
Here are screenshots showing the new 3D Touch quick actions for the aforementioned apps:
I didn’t think they were awful before—I would’ve given them a 3. With today’s update, they’ve earned a 5.
It kinda sucked that I paid (I believe it was a hefty $3 or $4) for ad removal yet I still got ads whenever I tapped on an article to read it. I found myself having to “Open in Safari” to get in-article ads removed. After the update, it seems they’re routing everything through Safari (along with your Safari ad-blocker of choice) so ads get removed without having to flip back and forth between the app and Safari. Heck, now you can even tell it to automatically go into Reader View if available, which is great for those of us who hate all the extraneous crap getting in the way of text.
It’s a truly great update, finally letting the app take advantage of the latest iOS technologies. Here’s a screenshot of the change log (missing app icon courtesy of Apple).
The developers setting “Rate App” as one of the 3D Touch Quick Actions (the first on the list, to be exact) was original (and somewhat sly), but that’s about it. I have two complaints about the developers wasting a 3D Touch Quick Action on “Rate App”:
Tapping on it does not take you directly to the “Write a Review” screen, which is where rating the app actually happens. It takes you to the app’s page on the App Store, but you still have to perform two more taps before you get to the “Write a Review” screen. Oh, and yeah, you’ll also have to enter your Apple ID password as usual before you’re allowed to write (or update) your review. So, that “Quick Action” was really not that quick of an action, after all.
3D Touch Quick Actions should be reserved for functions that the user is going to use often. How many times are they expecting me to want to update my review of their app?
