Apple's 2018 6.1-inch iPhone might not come with 3D Touch

New screen tech may mean the end of 3D Touch on one of this year's new iPhones

Apple introduced 3D touch with iPhone 6s and while the company marketed it as an innovative product, it was nothing more than a gimmick. For example, lightly tapping an app icon on an iPhone home screen will open the app, but pressing firmly on the icon will open a menu of shortcuts and widgets. Because of the higher cost of the new display glass, Kuo believes that Apple will have to forgo the 3D Touch technology for the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone to offset the increased cost and maintain the device's cheaper price. This construction could benefit by making the screen of the iPhone stronger and much more resistant to cracking and breaking, which indeed would prove to be a much-required improvement.

According to MacRumors and a Chinese website named Feng, the new 6.1 inch iPhone will be using a newer type of display which will increase the price of the panel heavily.

Bill Cosby found guilty on all counts
BREAKING: Bill Cosby lashes out at prosecutor in expletive-laden tirade in courtroom after conviction in sexual assault retrial. She said she became drowsy and unable to move, at which point Cosby touched her and forced her to touch him inappropriately.

According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, he claims that the 6.1 inch LCD model iPhone will not have 3D Touch feature. In accordance with Ming-Chi Kuo, the renowned Apple analyst, the handset features a Cover Glass Sensor situated on the surface of the screen of the device, rather than the touch sensors built into the display like the previous phones of the company. As a user, you won't be able to use the apps which provide support for 3D Touch. This would be an interesting development as considering Apple's 3D touch is well integrated into the OS at this point. The Cupertino-based tech giant is planning shelve 3D Touch to pave way for CGS display. Although the analyst didn't say as much, it's possible that Apple might completely ditch the 3D Touch feature on all future iPhones beyond 2019.
