Apple investors express concern as iPhone sales stall

3D Touch

KGISecurities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo states that Apple will opt for a new display which is not compatible with 3DTouch. Many people would not have done that last year because of the high price of the iPhone X. Analyst Jun Zhan expects that Apple this year will produce 60 million copies of the LCD model, compared to 50 million devices with an OLED display. The iPhone X had a bright, edge-to-edge display and 3-D facial recognition, but the $999 starting price was too much for some consumers. This makes the 3D Touch unit of the current-generation iPhones (save for the iPhone SE, of course) incompatible with the incoming model. So if you using iPhone 6 or below models and want to play Augmented Reality games on Your iPhone, this will be a good time to upgrade.

A few months ago, there were reports that Apple was planning to release three new iPhones this year.

Apple could be ditching its pressure sensitive "3D Touch" feature on one of its iPhones this year. 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.

Azerbaijan Grand Prix: Hamilton capitalises after Bottas blow-out
Ferrari's Finnish driver Kimi Raikkonen and Force India's Mexican driver Sergio Perez came second and third respectively. Bottas was comfortably holding off Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton when he suffered a freak puncture on lap 48.

The phone is estimated to be priced at around £340 or £349, which positions it as a cheaper alternative to the iPhone X, which still costs more than £800 without tax.

"We believe there is a lengthening of the replacement cycle and diminishing utility of high-end phones across markets, to which Apple is not immune", Uerkwitz said. Official and unofficial reports from Apple's suppliers suggest that demand for iPhone parts, in particular for the iPhone X, is a lot weaker than the company had hoped. This will have a new type of display which uses a technology called Cover Glass Sensor, instead of having touch sensors built into the display.

Since the CGS tech will increase the production cost for Apple, it should mean losing 3D Touch. "That launch itself could move iPhone sales up 5% a year", said Gene Munster, co-founder of Loup Ventures and a longtime Apple analyst.
