1-Inch LCD iPhone Will Have Stronger Glass, But No 3D Touch

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

Kuo says that the the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will use a "Cover Glass Sensor" (CGS) technology, which allows Apple to place the touch module on to the surface of the glass instead of on the display panel.

However, the mystery behind the thin-film sensor is not revealed in Kuo's note, but it might be some kind of an alternative to the 3D Touch feature. Also, with Apple ditching 3D touch, the cost of the new iPhones should drop significantly which will benefit the customers.

Ford cuts auto offerings down to Mustang, Focus Active crossover
Ford sold 209,000 Fusion sedans in 2017 - it's best-selling sedan - compared to 265,000 in 2016, and down from 306,000 in 2014. The strategy to "feed" the healthier parts of its business was tipped earlier this year by CEO Jim Hackett .

Apple added 3D Touch to the iPhone lineup, starting with the iPhone 6S. The 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch models of the iPhone 9 will offer an OLED display, while the 6.1-inch variant will be integrated with a normal TFT LCD display. Hence, the removal of 3D touch in the 6.1-inch display will offset the cost.

According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, he claims that the 6.1 inch LCD model iPhone will not have 3D Touch feature. These sensors are designed in such a way that they are capable of measuring as to how much pressure is applied when the users touch their phone's display. This updated display will supposedly raise the total cost of screen construction to between $23 and $26. There's a catch. This tech isn't likely to appear until the 2019 iPhone release.

New York Special Elections Will Be Held on April 24
Simcha Felder may be on the political hot seat from now till November. Democrats had hoped to win both seats and take control of the Senate.

Since the launch of 3D touch, the company couldn't increase its integration into more areas of iOS. This type of technology could also result in a display that's lighter, but more shock-resistant, according to MacRumors.

"There are a lot of things that have to fall into place, but 3D Touch overall feels like one of those ideas that only Apple can push into the mainstream - if Samsung or Huawei had delivered a similar feature, it would nearly certainly be a gimmick".
