There will also be a new thin-film sensor to be inserted in the display panel with this updated screen technology, although Kuo did not specify the exact benefit of this feature.

Indications of this alleged change surfaced past year when Barclays analysts suggested that Apple would eventually stop including the adapter with 2018 being the potential beginning of that change. Now, Kuo is looking to share light on more than just Apple. The traditional long press for options has worked well for Android devices over the past few years.

Daniel Ives, an analyst with GBH Insights, wrote in an investor note last week that Wall Street was in "full panic mode" over iPhone sales ahead of Apple's earnings report. It is therefore likely to reduce the cost of the iPhone 2018, made a decision to deprive the smartphone features 3D touch. "But the foundation for 3D Touch is solid and well-considered, and it's easy to see how the latent potential can turn into reality".
