The new iPhone will also include a new "touch film sensor" to the glass. The company is preparing a new lower-cost iPhone that looks similar to the iPhone X and has some of its most-appealing features, Bloomberg reported earlier this 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. Kuo believes that this new displays setup will be used in all iPhone 2019 variants. Other times, Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that Apple would ditch the headphone jack in iPhone 7 along with several other speculations like stereo speakers, water resistant, a glossy jet black color and more.

So what will Apple replace 3D Touch with?

As for its official unveiling, Apple is due to hold its Worldwide Developers Conference on 4 June 2018, with the iPhone SE 2 tipped to make an appearance. If any, the blame for the death of 3D Touch lies with Apple, since the company did not really roll out the feature to its other existing devices.

Indications of this alleged change surfaced past year when Barclays analysts suggested that Apple would eventually stop including the adapter with 2018 being the potential beginning of that change.

The Cupertino company is said to drop the 3D Touch on the entry-level iPhone X2 to offset the increased cost thanks to the use of the technology as mentioned above.

Rumours have also found its way to the mainstream suggesting that a "Lite" version of the iPhone X will be available. iPhone X being sold at a higher rate owing to its premium label will likely be succeeded by a more affordable version. How often do you use this feature?

Apple spent five years developing 3D Touch on its newer iPhone models.
