The feature was "intentionally removed" during the iOS 11 beta testing

process and was not reimplemented ahead of the official iOS 11 launch, but

Apple software engineering chief Craig Federighi promised it would be

re-added in a future iOS 11 update.


														
							

In the second beta of iOS 11.1, Apple has reintroduced the 3D Touch App Switcher gesture on devices that are equipped with 3D Touch.

The gesture, first implemented in iOS 9, allows users with a compatible iPhone to 3D Touch at the left edge of the display to bring up the App Switcher. When it was pulled from the beta, many iPhone users were disappointed as it is a convenient method for switching between apps with a single gesture. Sans gesture, the only way to bring up the App Switcher on an iPhone is by a double press on the Home button.

iOS 11.1 beta 2 is currently available for developers, but a public beta should be coming later this week. We’re still early in the beta testing process, so it’s not yet clear when iOS 11.1 will see a public release.
