Did Apple Just Make 3D Touch a Premium Feature?

14 September, 2018 Apple

Apple unveiled everything about the new iPhones and the new Apple Watch two days ago at their keynote and you probably already know the gist of everything they unveiled at the show. However, would you agree if we told you that Steve Cook and Co just confirmed the 3D Touch's failure to make any significant impact? Well, it depends on your point of view of course, but there's ample evidence to support one of two theories; either Apple failed to recognize or capitalize on the potentially great technology, or they just found it to be an unnecessary gimmick.


The reason as to why we are going on about this is of course the fact that the cheapest of the three iPhones, aka the iPhone XR doesn't have it! If you are going to tell me that a $749 (base model) smartphone can't support 3D Touch, which has been around for three whole years on older gen iPhones now, then I am going to tell you to get your fanboy hat off and look at things as they are!


If you are willing to pay $999 or $1099 for the base models of the iPhone XS or XS Max though, the 3D Touch is still retained there. This of course, leads us to the third conclusion; Apple just made a 3-year old technology premium-grade! The company is getting more and more ridiculous, one year at a time.
