Every now and then you read something and just go, WOW. This is what happened this morning when I stumbled upon a website that lets you weigh stuff on your iPhone 6s’ display just like a measuring scale. And best of all it actually WORKS.
The website uses Apple’s 3D Touch display technology and, by some form of internet voodoo, converts the iPhone 6s’ display into an accurate measuring scale. You don’t need an app to do it either, just navigate HERE from your iPhone 6s’ Safari browser.
If you have a case on your iPhone, remove it. Lay the iPhone flat on a table and place a smallish cup or spoon on the display. Pour whatever you want into this container and the iPhone 6s’ display will act as a scale, showing exactly how much the material weighs.
There is a limit to what you can weigh though — 385g. But, still, it’s a great little iPhone hack that hardly anyone knows about and one that shows just how accurate and detailed Apple’s 3D Touch technology actually is!
"iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus bring a powerful new dimension to iPhone’s revolutionary Multi-Touch interface with 3D Touch, which senses how deeply you press the display, letting you do essential things more quickly and simply. The new iPhones introduce Live Photos, which bring still images to life, transforming instants frozen in time into unforgettable living memories. Live Photos, 3D Touch, 12-megapixel iSight camera, 5-megapixel FaceTime HD camera with Retina Flash and more are powered by the Apple-designed A9 chip, the most advanced chip ever in a smartphone, delivering faster performance and great battery life. iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are designed with the strongest glass on any smartphone and 7000 series aluminium, the same alloy used in the aerospace industry, in gorgeous metallic finishes that now include rose gold."
