Apple’s new 3D Touch technology will work even if you cover your display with a protective screen, says Apple’s senior VP of marketing, Phil Schiller.

3D Touch will be available exclusively on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus once the devices launch on September 25th. The new technology will provide users with a new surface-level UI that gives shortcuts to various functions on the home screen and within various apps.
