Most of Apple's own apps have quick actions enabled, with third-party developers starting to release updates to enable the feature. However, it's important to note that after installing an app update that includes quick actions, you'll first need to launch the app before the actions will work. After that initial launch, quick actions will remain active. When an app doesn't have a quick action, you'll feel several gentle vibrations on your finger as an indicator that quick actions aren't supported.
While quick actions make it convenient to perform tasks from your home screen, Peek and Pop allow you to get more done on any screen, Developers have a few different options for implementing Peek and Pop, One example is commuter series case for apple iphone se, 5s and 5 - black in the Messages app, where by light-pressing on a message thread your device will display a small preview of the conversation, Think of this as a way to peek into the thread, without actually opening it (and marking the message as read), You can swipe up when peeking into a conversation, revealing a list of actions such as custom text replies, You can also peek at emails in the Mail app..
The "peek" will remain active as long as your finger remains on the screen; lifting it off will close it. Also, you don't have to keep applying pressure on the screen once it's activated. The "Pop" portion comes into play as you press harder on the screen when previewing a message or viewing content. A deep-press will fully open the content you are viewing, allowing you to interact with it. You can also peek at URLs, flight numbers, dates on your calendar and a long list of other bits of information presented on your screen. If a portion of a message has text underlined, odds are iOS has identified information in that message you can preview using Peek and Pop.

Apple added another dimension to how we interact with our iPhones. The company is calling it 3D Touch, which in essence, turns your phone's entire screen into one, big, pressure-sensitive button.
