But for now, if the newest report is to be believed, the company may be ditching 3D Touch feature in one of its upcoming iPhone handsets. As such, in an effort to cut costs, Kuo says Apple may abandon 3D Touch on the upcoming 6.1-inch LCD iPhone. Then the iOS software of the company could trigger various functions on the basis of the amount of pressure applied.

In one of Apple's many implementations, pressing lightly on an app opens it, while pressing hard brings up a list of quick shortcuts.

The current rumor is about the 6.1 "version of the iPhone, which will receive an LCD, which will be the cheapest version, which is expected in the autumn together with two OLED models, and there may also be a successor to the iPhone SE; it could be announced in the spring". Apple is probably going for a new "Cover Glass Sensor" (CGS) display technology that will help them strengthen the glass against shocks and will lighten the overall weight. This means that the purchase price of the panel will increase from US$ 23 to US$ 26.

According to MacRumors and a Chinese website named Feng, the new 6.1 inch iPhone will be using a newer type of display which will increase the price of the panel heavily.

5 reasons the NASCAR world should be pumped for Matt Kenseth's return
Perhaps it can happen in this reunion, with Kenseth helping the organization move back to the top of the standings. Matt Kenseth's 2003 Cup Series championship came in the midst of the peak of what's now Roush Fenway Racing .

The KGI report also states that starting from 2019, all iPhones, including the OLED models, will use the CGS process. This resulted in a decline in the use of 3D touch with people not really caring about the feature.

The 3D feature is equally liked and hated.

The expulsion of 3D Touch doesn't appear to be excessively fantastical given it's very polarizing - a few clients think that its valuable, while others think that its pointless.

Kuo also claims that this may just be the beginning of Apple's 3D Touch phase-out.
