Upcoming iPhone looks more like Android clone than iPhone X

iPhone X: Apple Might Be Retiring A Popular Feature For 2018

Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst at KGI Securities, believes that this may be the start of a general phase-out of 3D Touch across the iPhone range, and that by 2019 the technology will have disappeared completely. For instance, the analyst accurately predicted the iPhone X back in 2016 saying that the company is working on a device with a 5.8-inch display featuring a glass back and a metal frame.

The new, lower-cost iPhone will use an LCD display that's about half the cost of the OLED screen in the iPhone X. It's also likely to use an aluminium casing versus stainless steel. Apple has included the $9 Lightning to 3.5mm headphone adapter since the iPhone 7 arrived without a headphone jack and continued to do so with its 2017 iPhone lineup. Most 3D features can easily be replaced with a simple touch-and-hold method, or long-pressing as it's more commonly called.

Both devices will reportedly continue to offer "3D Touch" functionality.

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

Coming back to Apple, the company had a very weak Q1 2018, as demand for its iPhone 8 and X series declined sequentially in contrast to the Chinese market.

The primary focus on the latest sofware update is to fix an issue where touch input wouldn't work on the iPhone 8 that were serviced with "non-geniune replacement displays". In India, the base-level iPhone X is being sold at Rs 84,999. Also, he adds that it will make up for 65-75 percent of the iPhone sales next year.

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.

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.

The iPhone X's parts cost $175 more than the iPhone 8's, according to a November analysis.

The main problem with 3D Touch is that it's expendable.

It is important to note that the iPhone X provides features like a larger screen, animated emojis, and Face ID and has been priced at $999. How often do you use this feature?
