That's good news. I don't use 3D touch other than moving cursor.
This just reaffirms my decision to upgrade from a 6s Plus to the 8 Plus in September once its price is lowered by $100+ due to the new iPhones being released. I love 3D Touch and have zero interest in having to deal with the notch and Face ID.
I plan to hold on to the 8 Plus until they release touch ID under the screen or significantly reduce the size of the notch and improve Face ID (e.g. v2 or v3).
What aspect ratio will the 6.5" model be? Hopefully 16x9 so videos aren't cropped full screen.
I kinda like Force Touch. Wait - is that the same thing as 3D Touch?
No force touch module, good. Put back the headphone jack.
Ouch! Are you stating that you are obese???
This. If it weren’t for this one, I’d be in the ”who cares about 3D Touch?” camp, but with this feature included I’m a bit reluctant to let go of it.
Damn dude, you are 110% man. Everyone around you must be jealous.
3D Touch could possibly be replaced with something else... but to remove it just to save $3?
No sir! I wear regular straight jeans and pants, a dying breed if you ask me.
So Apple is cutting a feature based to offset a $3 per phone wholesale price increase -- or am I just misunderstanding this?
The idea is they will put Touch ID in the screen, eliminating the need for Face ID altogether and allowing for a 100% screen front. They must need to remove 3D Touch to accomplish this? Who knows this is all rumors at this point. On second thought they still need light sensor and front camera. Again, it’s all fiction for now.
How do you type without 3D touch?! It saves so much time, it's one of the reasons I can't use the SE. Also, the app switcher.
RE: "With this display technology, Apple will add a thin-film sensor to the touch film sensor included in the CGS, but the purpose of the new layer is unknown."
NOT true, it's purpose is to enable support for a "pseudo-Hardware Home Button" !
Kuo really should have been able to figure that out !! ... NOT Rocket Science !!!
Bulging pockets are way more embarrassing than "guys" wearing slim fit jeans.
Same. 3D Touch is essential for text entry but otherwise I don’t use it that much; maybe on Control Centre and some app icons sometimes.
I definitely couldn’t give it up entirely.
I have to say that neither would require ForceTouch if iOS wouldn't suck so much at text input and setting cursor position. Especially when it comes to selecting text it's probably the most frustrating OS I've ever used. The App-Switcher advantage is obsolete on the X design anyway.
Some other things like shortcuts are nice, but that as well wouldn't be necessary if the OS would allow to create a proper home/lock screen.
Yea, Face ID is a step forward.
Nah.. they are just unaware how this new tech works. 3D touch is great, although unutilized outside core iOS. I keep force pressing the screen wondering where is it, when I am using older iPhones.
Yes, I’ve been saying this for a long time! Give us a long press to access shortcuts and finally being the functionality to the iPad as well. The haptic feedback is like the animated zoom doc on the Mac - it’s cute for about a day. Good riddance indeed.
I also do not use 3D touch. In fact, I have it disabled. Very much looking forward to the 6.1inch model. It should end up being cheaper and slightly smaller in footprint than current Plus models.
Let's take it as fact before it happens.
I hardly ever use 3D Touch. Why not just hold down to activate a context sensitive menu?
so what would be comparable to iPhone 8, i have the 7 now, But want the plus size 2018 model?
