Apple Ditching 3D Touch In 2018 Entry-Level iPhone X2

In addition, Apple will launch a giant iPhone with a 6.5-inch screen and an update to the current iPhone X size, people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg earlier this year. The iPhone SE may also have 2G of RAM, according to separate reports, and can come with two storage options, 32GB and 128GB.

The 3D Touch feature was introduced with the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.

The iPhone X's parts cost $115 more than the iPhone 8's, according to a November analysis. The company is also planning to sell the iPhone X for a lot less money, this year around.

Popular and uncannily reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has issued a rather grave prediction for the iPhone series of 2018. To keep the price in check, these iPhones are likely to lose the 3D Touch technology as well. And it looks like the entry-level iPhone X2 will drop the 3D Touch feature to minimize the cost of display manufacturing.

Campling said that Apple will stop making iPhone X models because it is too expensive, with customers not purchasing the smartphone due to its $999 starting price.

As iPhone sales start to plateau, Apple is becoming more reliant on its services and other products to help boost growth.

Morgan Stanley recently slashed its forecast for iPhone sales in the June quarter to 34 million, implying a 17 per cent year-on-year decline.

Apple plans to return an extra $100 billion at least to shareholders, analysts predict, as it prepares to redistribute its repatriated overseas profits.

Concerns are also being raised over the future of mobile phone market after the first quarter of 2018 or the last quarter of the fiscal year 2017 saw the first year-over-year decrease in the sales. So if you using iPhone 6 or below models and want to play Augmented Reality games on Your iPhone, this will be a good time to upgrade. Munster sees 18-per-cent to 20-per-cent growth.
