Apple eliminate 3D Touch feedback from the iPhone to launch this year, according to Barclays analysts.
Analyst statements, based on reports from Apple's production chain in Asia, were collected by MacRumors, a site specializing in Apple issues. The Cupertino giant will eliminate 3D Touch, but use Haptic Touch instead, analysts said.
3D Touch is a type of interaction on the screen. This function, which offers on-screen vibration feedback when executed, has useful functions such as the display of secondary icons, function shortcuts and fast navigation from the keyboard.
Haptic Touch made its debut with the iPhone XR to place that feedback and some of the functions of 3D Touch on an LCD screen. However, Haptic Touch does not have the same functions and cannot be used in as many scenarios as 3D Touch.
The Wall Street Journal, in a report last January, predicted the removal of 3D Touch from the iPhone OLED for this year. Apple has not commented on its phone plans for 2019.
It is rumored that the company will launch three cell phones this year, the natural successors of the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR, known asY respectively. The phones will be very similar to last year's models, with slight changes, such as a three-lens camera for models with OLED screen and a double camera for the successor of the iPhone XR. These details are only a speculation, so it is necessary to wait for its official launch possibly between September and October to know the confirmed characteristics.
