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

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

While it has been rumored that this model is just going to be called iPhone thanks to an earlier concerning a simpler naming approach, we'll be dubbing it as the iPhone for now. It'll be removed entirely from future models as Apple tries to cut costs in display construction. 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. For instance, a hard-press on the Photos app brings up a few options, including the Most Recent folder, Favorites, One Year Ago, and Search. The company is using LCD screen instead of OLED on the cheapest iPhone and will have Glass cover sensor. The glass would be lighter and better able to withstand drops but is also more expensive, so Apple would eliminate 3D Touch functionality with the cheapest model.

But there's a downside.

The new display supposedly would increase the costs to in between 23 dollars and 26 dollars. The dual SIM support is also said to arrive in the larger 6.5-inch model but not in the 5.8-inch OLED iPhone, which will be the successor to the current gen. iPhone X. Kuo says that the arrival of the dual-SIM supporting iPhone could introduce a completely new price segment for the smartphone series.

The 3D feature is equally liked and hated.

The main problem with 3D Touch is that it's expendable. However, so it the film could be some other new input method to replace 3D Touch.

The main reason behind the move is because of the cost factors involved with the production fo CGS screen.

The iPhone's 3D Touch feature, which enables gestures based on how much pressure is used when tapping the screen, may not be the most popular or useful thing about the device, but it's become well ingrained throughout iOS since its debut on the iPhone 6s in 2015.

Would you miss Apple's 3D Touch if your Phone come with the feature?
