Hello,

 

In iOS 13, a menu comes up when you touch the screen with 3 fingers. This causes problems with many apps, most popular Fortnite and PUBG: https://www.idownloadblog.com/2019/09/20/ios-13-text-editing-gesture-gaming-issues/

 

I don’t mind this thing popping up, but then, you won’t get the touch-ended-event back. So if you have a counter that counts the touches, they will remain 3 after the gesture. Is there a solution like turning this menu off, or getting the touch events anyway?

@philipp3 This is a major problem for developers. I thought Apple would quickly come up with a way to disable the menu and allow 3 touches in apps but it seems like they are taking a while to do this.

 

Depending on what that third touch is controlling you could use a timer to evaluate the touches and reset them after a certain amount of time with continuous triple touches.  That was the only workaround I could think of and it's very inelegant.

 

Maybe someone else has a good hack?

I just tried a 3 finger touch and I couldn't get the menu to pop up on my iPhone X running 13.1.1. (Updating to 13.1.2 now)

Looks like it was disabled in one of the iOS 13 updates?  I have to check my devices and OS versions.  Let me know what happens with your update Rob.  Now I'm really curious.

The iOS 13.1.2 doesn't pop up a menu on a three-finger touch either.

Same, it seems that Apple responded quickly after all.  I have one device I haven't updated to iOS 13.0. - just for curiosity's sake I'll try take it to 13.0 and see if that is the only version that has the three fingers menus - although I think it persisted into the first update.

Wow, that was easy, my phone also updated last night, and now it’s gone :)  I might have skipped 13.1.1
