The iPhone's 3D Touch feature, which enables gestures based on how much pressure is used when tapping the screen, may not be the most popular or useful thing about the device, but it's become well ingrained throughout iOS since its debut on the iPhone 6s in 2015. Furthermore, users are reporting that the 3D Touch functionality is not working properly with the now available iPhone 8.
That means the new iPhone with this CGS tech will not only have a more shock resistant glass display but it'll be lighter too.
The 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLED iPhone models in 2018 will both retain the 3D Touch feature.

Since the whole point of this LCD iPhone is to keep it affordable to battle the likes of the upcoming OnePlus 6 and other similarly priced Android smartphones, Apple will omit 3D Touch in this model, which will likely keep the costs in check while adopting the newer technology. It's unclear at this time what this layer is for, however, it will be increasing the cost of the touch panel by 15%. This updated display will supposedly raise the total cost of screen construction to between $23 and $26.
The KGI report also states that starting from 2019, all iPhones, including the OLED models, will use the CGS process.
Back in January, KGI Securities expert Ming-Chi Kuo uncovered three potential new iPhone models Apple may discharge this year. As a user, you won't be able to use the apps which provide support for 3D Touch. However, in the case of 3D Touch, reportedly no other company has managed to get what Apple did.
Kuo also claims that this may just be the beginning of Apple's 3D Touch phase-out.
