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

Apple reports second quarter profits of USD 13.8 billion, up 25.3 per cent

Apple's $22.8 Billion in Executed Repurchases Set Another Record

Starting in 2019, Apple could remove the feature from all iPhone models, according to Kuo.

The CGS technology in the 6.1-inch iPhone 2018 device is expected to make the display lighter and more resistant to impact.

It is also believed that the Apple iPhone could be coming with LCD displays instead of OLED.

Apple may have not yet confirmed that the iPhone X is not dead, but it certainly looks like the high-end smartphone is not in danger of being killed off. Most 3D features can easily be replaced with a simple touch-and-hold method, or long-pressing as it's more commonly called.

The 3D Touch feature was introduced with the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. If something as trivial as 3D Touch increases costs in production but offers very little in terms of functionality, then it's only logical for Apple to have it removed.

No frostiness in Indo-China ties, says Ram Madhav
Before leaving, PM Modi reciprocated by inviting Xi to India for a similar informal summit next year. They recognised terrorism as common threat and committed to cooperate further on counter terrorism.

But be rest assured, it's only the entry-level iPhone that will be ditching the 3D Touch feature. The company is also working on technology such as touchless gesture control which could be a replacement to the 3D touch when it becomes available. However, its sales growth slumped significantly from over 40 percent it had reported for previous five years.

Though there are numerous reports of slow iPhone X demand but still we expect the 2018 iPhone's to follow the similar design. iPhone X successor should come in more affordable price while iPhone X Plus should regain the top spot in the line-up. That would be the new iPhone X and iPhone X Plus.

The main problem with 3D Touch is that it's expendable. Everyone who wants a smartphone has a smartphone, and thanks to a relative lack of innovation, people are holding onto their devices for longer than ever. iPhones will be important for Apple going forward, but the company is more than just one product. How often do you use this feature?

Barclays thinks the trio of Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhones expected to launch this fall won't include a Lightning to 3.5mm Headphone Jack Adapter in the box.
