No more 3D Touch Option After 2018 IPhones

3D Touch feature was initially introduced by Apple on iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s plus back in 2015. This means that users will get a slightly heavier than normal touch on the screen, apart from other app specific features. That gesture could be incorporated to Android Long-Press. However, in iPhone, 3D Touch feature can only trigger through actual pressure sensitive sensor when a little pressure is put on the display.

According to renowned analyst Ming- Chi Kuo, the 6.1 inch LCD iPhone will not feature 3D touch due to an extra thin layer of film required for the display. Barclay’s Analyst Blayne Curtis has recently visited Apple’s supply chain in China and released a new report.

According to the report by Mr. Curtis, the upcoming 2019 OLED iPhones will not feature 3D Touch capabilities. Therefore, we can conclude that the 6.5 inches and 5.8 inches iPhone X sequel which are shipped with OLED panels this year will be the last ones to feature this 3D Touch capability.

The report by Mr. Curtis also reveals that the new water resistant device Air Pod 2 will reach the stores in the fourth quarter of 2019. However, a new version of the Air Pod that support wireless charging will also be launched by next month.

Air Power charging mat will also be available in September 2018. Mr. Curtis also mentioned in his report stating that Apple should enter on the race competing on the feature of smart speakers by next year, being a new rival to Amazon’s Echo and Google Home.

Do you feel that Apple’s dedicated users will miss the 3D Touch on future iPhones? Yes, of course, until Apple finds a way to keep the features of 3D touch intact without the need of hardware. Like we mentioned earlier, the long-press feature also seemed to be the most practical way of interacting with screen.
