Apple's next iPhone may ditch 3D Touch

Apple could be set to fix one of its greatest problems that has plagued its iPhones for years, including the iPhone X - that cracking screen. However, new reports about the next iPhone suggest that a version of the iPhone 11 will not support 3D Touch.

As per Kuo, the new 6.1-inch iPhone will utilize something many refer to as Cover Glass Sensor (CGS) innovation which will allegedly enable the display to be lighter and more effect safe.

The rumored 6.1-inch iPhone for 2018 won't have 3D Touch functionality. The 3D Touch is a very compelling and complex technology which makes use of special sensors that are integrated with the Apple iPhone's display. It's unclear at this time what this layer is for, however, it will be increasing the cost of the touch panel by 15%.

The new display supposedly would increase the costs to in between 23 dollars and 26 dollars. A new report about those entry-level iPhone came today from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo from a research that the upcoming 6.1 inches iPhone 2018 will not feature 3D Touch. However, Kuo says that Apple wants to incorporate CGS technology to all of its future iPhone models starting in 2019. Though it's hard to imagine for anyone to be disappointed if this feature was to be removed, there are a bunch of 3D Touch loyalists out there, as Gizmodo notes, and they swear by its convenience.

According to the analyst's memo, as seen by Feng, Apple plans to move the iPhone's touch module will also be moved from the display panel to the surface glass, and it will add a "thin-film sensor", whatever that means. Although Apple's 3D Touch functionality seemed quite elegant, it also had some serious issues.
