Upcoming 6.1 inch cheaper iPhone to lack 3D Touch

New screen tech may mean the end of 3D Touch on one of this year's new iPhones Apple to drop 3D Touch on entry level iPhones, will use Cover glass sensor

The iPhone 6s debuted one of the most revolutionary technologies that became key to an iPhone's appeal - 3D Touch. However, new reports about the next iPhone suggest that a version of the iPhone 11 will not support 3D Touch.

The company is said to leave behind the particular display technology from its "affordable" 6.1-inch iPhone that is also rumoured to sport a LCD screen instead of OLED like the other two.

As per Kuo, the new 6.1-inch iPhone will utilize something many refer to as Cover Glass Sensor (CGS) innovation which will allegedly enable the display to be lighter and more effect safe. Kuo beforehand noticed that the 6.1-inch model wouldn't have 3D Touch, and now we have more insights about it. There's a catch. This tech isn't likely to appear until the 2019 iPhone release. It's unclear at this time what this layer is for, however, it will be increasing the cost of the touch panel by 15%. This means that the purchase price of the panel will increase from US$ 23 to US$ 26. However, it looks like the company is set to drop the feature since users are not using the feature.




However in order to mitigate the cost apple would certainly remove the 3D touch functionality prevalent n the 6.1 inch iPhone and it would be quite a move increasing the speculations given that 3D touch which is now used is well integrated throughout the operating system.

Ming-Chi Kuo, one of the most prominent names in the world of iPhone leaks, suggests that Apple won't be considering the inclusion of 3D Touch for the more affordable mainstream iPhone model of 2018 - the rumoured 6.1-inch iPhone with an LCD display. In this case, however, it might not be that Apple's rivals were unable to copy 3D Touch, they simply may have realized that the technology isn't particularly useful.
