3D Touch for iPhone is a pressure-sensitive display technology that enables iPhone users to make "Peek" and "Pop" gestures by exerting a little physical force onto the screen's glass panel. This causes a functional reaction, to access Quick Action shortcut menus, preview content within apps or animate Live Photos. It has the potential to transform user interface design and improve user experience significantly.

How is mobile going to drive the future of motor insurance?

Driving a vehicle without motor insurance is illegal anywhere in the world. You must have at least 3rd party insurance as a minimum legal requirement. This means you’re covered if you have an accident causing damage or injury to any other person, vehicle, animal or property.
