According to Verge, the three-finger gesture on the iPhones was introduced to allow for more granular text editing options. Using three or more fingers triggers the new text editing bar. This toolbar only opens when the user taps inside text boxes on Messages, Signal and similar apps. Both Fortnite and PUBG often involve keeping two fingers on the screen for moving a character and controlling the camera at the same time a third finger is arched across the screen to aim down sights and perform other in-game functions.
