1. A non-transitory computer-readable storage medium storing one or more programs, the one or more programs comprising instructions, which when executed by a device with a display and a touch-sensitive surface, wherein the device includes one or more sensors to detect pressure of contacts with the touch-sensitive surface, cause the electronic device to:

  • display, on the display, one or more user interface objects that are configured to be conditionally activated in response to inputs detected on the touch-sensitive surface;

    while displaying the one or more user interface objects on the display, detect a first input that includes a first contact on the touch-sensitive surface at a location that corresponds to a first user interface object of the one or more user interface objects, wherein the first contact has a duration and a pressure; and

    in response to detecting the first input;

    in accordance with a determination that the first input satisfies a respective input threshold without satisfying first activation criteria, perform a first operation associated with the first user interface object without performing a second operation associated with the first user interface object; and

    in accordance with a determination that the first input satisfies the first activation criteria for the first user interface object, wherein the first activation criteria for the first user interface object include a combination of pressure criteria and temporal criteria that are evaluated by comparing the duration of the first contact with one or more temporal thresholds and comparing the pressure of the first contact with one or more pressure thresholds, perform the second operation associated with the first user interface object, wherein the duration of the first contact is a duration that the first contact has been detected on the touch-sensitive surface starting from a time prior to when the first input satisfied the respective input threshold, and wherein the second operation is different from the first operation.
