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

Stable shipments and on-time shipping are targeted this season, believes KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

In addition, Apple will launch a giant iPhone with a 6.5-inch screen and an update to the current iPhone X size, people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg News earlier this year. Apple used reasonably flexible OLED displays from Samsung for the original iPhone X, which can bend slightly at the bottom.

Apple iPhone screens can now crack quite easily, even in the case of the latest iPhone X. Most 3D features can easily be replaced with a simple touch-and-hold method, or long-pressing as it's more commonly called. 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. However, the new iPhone will not receive the support of face recognition technology and 3D touch technology. One of these upcoming variants will be the 6.1-inch iPhone model that will use the same features of the iPhone 8 and the current iPhone X flagship.

Kuo also claims that this may just be the beginning of Apple's 3D Touch phase-out.

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

The analyst, Kuo, also believes that the entry-level iPhone will be the best seller of the trio. He also lowered his iPhone sales expectations for this year and next.

The two leaders also agreed to set up a joint economic project in Afghanistan, which is strategically important to both nations. In addition, New Delhi is suspicious of China's moves to build ties with India's longtime rival Pakistan.

Apple will be launching the iPhone trio simultaneously in November 2018. While I am not sold on the news completely, I do see a possibility of that happening especially since iPhone X isn't doing so well right now.

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.
