Apple could boost the power of its 3D Touch technology as part of its heavily–touted iPhone 8, if a new rumour is on the money.
Analyst Ming Chi Kuo believes that Apple will utilise a more sensitive touchscreen panel within its upcoming iPhone 8, allowing it to offer a more complex version of 3D Touch.
At the moment, 3D Touch allows iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 owners to register presses as well as swipes, giving them a number of options when they hold down their finger on the display.
This new tech, however, could mean that the iPhone 8 could register more varying pressure levels. This could potentially give apps more depth and take Apple’s device well beyond those offered by rival smartphone makers.
Kuo is renowned for having impeccable sources in Apple’s supply chain, so this rumour could well play out once the iPhone 8 launches later in the year.
Previous gossip has pointed towards Apple’s new phone featuring an all–glass design, curved display and improved dual lens camera.
