Apple to replace 3D Touch with Cover Glass Sensor in upcoming iPhones

Apple-iPhone-X

Because of the higher cost of the new display glass, Kuo believes that Apple will have to forgo the 3D Touch technology for the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone to offset the increased cost and maintain the device's cheaper price. This resulted in a decline in the use of 3D touch with people not really caring about the feature.

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.

According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, he claims that the 6.1 inch LCD model iPhone will not have 3D Touch feature. So, for this expensive display upgrade, the company might ditch the 3D Touch feature in order to balance out the costs.

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.

Apple spent five years developing 3D Touch on its newer iPhone models. This means that the purchase price of the panel will increase from US$ 23 to US$ 26. There's a catch. This tech isn't likely to appear until the 2019 iPhone release. The main reason for the strong advocacy behind the 3D touch is that several companies have optimized the software for the 3D Touch. Most 3D features can easily be replaced with a simple touch-and-hold method, or long-pressing as it's more commonly called. The future of 3D Touch is quite uncertain amid leaked reports of Apple's upcoming phones.

Analysts are of the opinion that removal of 3D Touch in favor of CGS display is not a good idea.
