3D Touch to Be Dropped From New iPhones

To maintain hefty profit margins, the use of LCD panels and aluminum housings are likely instead of the more expensive OLED panels and stainless steel.

The 3D Touch feature was introduced with the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.

Apple is all set to roll out its 2018 edition iPhones although rumours and news have made its way to the public ear long before. Some iPhone parts suppliers have indicated that demand has dropped off. Foxconn saw its revenue fall 4.1 percent in February, which could mean the iPhone X is struggling.

The 6.1-inch SE2 will be very similar to the original iPhone SE and will even keep the 3.5mm headphone jack that Apple removed to an uproar in 2016.

A few months ago, there were reports that Apple was planning to release three new iPhones this year.

The iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X are less than a year old but it appears that Apple has plans to provide more options for 2018.

According to Hemmerstoffer on Twitter, prior to sharing images of 3D CAD renders of the purported "iPhone SE 2", he said "if you've been following me for a while, you know I'm used to share only things I totally trust".


By expanding this scheme, Apple will attempt to convince investors that business is doing well amid claims that iPhone sales are beginning to decline. The results should also provide clues on the company's next strategy for its most-important product.

For most companies, one product facing growth headwinds wouldn't be a concern.

Apple is rumored to be working on its largest iPhone ever and two other phones.

According to the latest report by Counterpoint Research, Apple's share in premium segment smartphones plunged significantly in the first quarter of 2018 by a massive 55%.

Following corporation tax cuts unveiled by President Donald Trump in February, Apple announced that it would transfer $250 billion of cash stored overseas to the US. So if you using iPhone 6 or below models and want to play Augmented Reality games on Your iPhone, this will be a good time to upgrade.

But analysts aren't panicking just yet, and that's all thanks to Apple's other revenue streams. Bernstein analyst Toni Sacconaghi said weakness in the current iPhone lineup was caused by a structural slowdown in the growth of new customers and the high pricing of the X model. This is why Apple is offering iPhones as low as $349. Sacconaghi wrote in a recent note to investors.
