In January, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that this year, Apple may launch three new iPhone models.

One of them is a 6.1-inch model that will have features of the iPhone X and iPhone 8. Prior to this, Kuo mentioned that this 6.1-inch model will not be equipped with 3D Touch.

Now, there is new information that explains why Apple may remove 3D Touch from the new iPhone. As mentioned by MacRumors, Ming-Chi Kuo estimates that the 6.1-inch iPhone model will have a screen with new technology.

This screen is mentioned will make production costs more expensive, making Kuo estimate that Apple will remove the 3D Touch module to reduce costs.

Kuo says this new 6.1-inch phone will have Cover Glass Sensor (CGS) technology that is rumored to be lighter and more resilient than regular screens.

The iPhone touch module will also be moved from the screen to the coating glass. In addition, the new iPhone will also have a "thin sensor", although not yet known what the functions of these sensors.

The decision to eliminate 3D Touch will reap debate among Apple fans. Some people find the feature useless while others often use it.

Indeed, Apple has been rumored to be busy developing new technology that allows users to exercise control without touch and curved screen.
