The upcoming iPhone with 6.1 "LCD is likely to be equipped with a layer of sturdier glass at the front".
Maybe the new goal that apple has is the introduction of the iPhones with touch less gesture controls and maybe the CGS and the thin film sensor that is to be present I the new iPhones are surely a step towards that. This updated display will supposedly raise the total cost of screen construction to between $23 and $26.

But now there's word from Ming-Chi Kuo, the reliable, well-connected analyst with KGI Securities, that after only three years Apple may be ditching 3D Touch for one of this year's new iPhones. To keep the costs low, Apple might ditch 3D Touch. A couple of advantages Apple may have with CGS is that the panel is more durable and lighter as well.
Would you miss Apple's 3D Touch if your Phone come with the feature? It is this model that has been a hot topic this week as KGI's Ming-Chi Kuo has shared a few details about this iPhone, via Chinese site Feng.
If Apple chose to not include 3D Touch, it'd be interesting to see what users think, as the feature is considered useful by some and pointless by others.
