Apple might be planning to ditch 3D Touch with the upcoming 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. Furthermore, users are reporting that the 3D Touch functionality is not working properly with the now available iPhone 8. Also, with Apple ditching 3D touch, the cost of the new iPhones should drop significantly which will benefit the customers.

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.

The other two iPhone models are expected to release in 2018 -the 5.8-inch OLED iPhone and the 6.5-inch OLED smartphone which might be realised as an iPhone X Plus will still continue with the 3D Touch functionality.

In January, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a great track record when it comes to revealing yet-to-be-announced news on upcoming Apple products, said we should expect three new iPhones to be announced September, with one of them being a 6.1-inch model that is a cross between the iPhone X and iPhone 8.

Kuo adds that Apple will be using the cover glass sensor (CGS) technology for the 6.1-inch iPhone instead of the in-cell sensor, which integrates the touch layer in the display itself. The 6.1 inch LCD iPhone model is rumored to cost between $550 - $650 only.

The 3D feature is equally liked and hated. To keep the costs low, Apple might ditch 3D Touch.

Kuo also claims that this may just be the beginning of Apple's 3D Touch phase-out.

"There are a lot of things that have to fall into place, but 3D Touch overall feels like one of those ideas that only Apple can push into the mainstream - if Samsung or Huawei had delivered a similar feature, it would nearly certainly be a gimmick".
