It wasn’t available when the 6S launched, but one of the recent iOS 9 updates added peek and pop for apps in the store. It’s a great way to take a quick glance at an interesting app, then press a little harder to dive in deeper. Unfortunately, swiping up while peeking won’t offer any of the common shortcuts you’ll find with this gesture in other apps. It would be nice to share an app with this swipe or add them to our wishlist.
