Apple to drop 3D Touch on entry level iPhones, will use Cover glass sensor

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

As per the reminder seen by Feng, the iPhone's touch module will likewise be moved from the display board to the surface glass.

However, the mystery behind the thin-film sensor is not revealed in Kuo's note, but it might be some kind of an alternative to the 3D Touch feature.

As reported earlier and several times before, the affordable 6.1-inch iPhone will not have 3D Touch.

The two new models of the iPhone are expected to release in 2018, one with the 5.8 inch OLED iPhone X successor and the other one is the 6.5 inch OLED device to be tagged as iPhone X plus.

Back in January, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone won't feature Apple's pressure-sensitive display feature called 3D Touch. The new CGS technology will make the display lighter and more shock resistant.

The rumored 6.1-inch iPhone for 2018 won't have 3D Touch functionality. However, in doing that, Apple will be looking at an increased cost per panel, which could result in hiked prices for the end consumer.

The KGI report also states that starting from 2019, all iPhones, including the OLED models, will use the CGS process. However, it looks like the company is set to drop the feature since users are not using the feature. The Cupertino-based tech giant is planning shelve 3D Touch to pave way for CGS display.

Whenever Apple develops any nifty new technology for its iPhones, the rivals of the company conventionally try to copy it and implement them in their own devices.

The expulsion of 3D Touch doesn't appear to be excessively fantastical given it's very polarizing - a few clients think that its valuable, while others think that its pointless. Although Apple's 3D Touch functionality seemed quite elegant, it also had some serious issues.
