After Apple revamped iPhone this year and termed it as the future of phones, it was anticipated that this event would rekindle a wave of enthusiasm in the smartphone market and that this financial year would by iPhone at the current rates. The iPhone X had a bright, edge-to-edge display and 3D facial recognition, but the $999 (U.S.) starting price was too much for some consumers.
Apple's 3D Touch was added to its iPhones but not iPads, suggesting the company has been moving tentatively with the tech, rather than committing completely. The use of "CGS" technology will make the display lighter and more resistant to shocks. The information mentions that the company could use the Cover Glass Sensor technology for all of its iPhone releases next year. As a result 3D Touch has never reached its potential - and now it looks like it never will. What do you think about the 3D Touch feature?
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. As per the report, Apple's share in the premium segment dropped as the volumes went down by 55 percent due to a decline in shipments of its iPhone 8 and iPhone X smartphones.
Expect Apple to unveil its new affordable $550 iPhone with large 6.3-inch screen later this summer, if rumours prove accurate.
While the iPhone X has its fair share of shortcomings, saying that the smartphone will be discontinued is certainly on the extreme side of things. Kuo, who is easily the firm's most recognizable analyst by name, previously worked at Taiwanese news company Digitimes.
The analyst, Kuo, also believes that the entry-level iPhone will be the best seller of the trio. Fiscal second-quarter iPhone unit sales are expected to be 51.9 million, up from 50.8 million a year earlier, according to average analyst forecasts compiled by Bloomberg. When the iPhone series relinquishes its 3D Touch functionality, it would ultimately just be a matter of Apple standardizing the features on its devices across the board.
