According to the latest report from the the Wall Street Journal, Apple may release an iPhone with a curved OLED screen next year. The company has asked its suppliers to submit prototypes of their displays for testing. The screens have higher resolution than those used by Samsung.
It is Sunday today, which means that we should discuss the most interesting stories of the last couple of days. Let’s not waste time and start about the posts worth your attention right now.
Apple is planning to equip the next-generation iPhone with a 3D camera. According to the latest report from people familiar with the matter, the company has teamed with LG Innotek to develop a new sensor. By the way, this is the same company that supplies Apple with dual cameras for the iPhone 7 Plus.
According to the latest report from DigiTimes, Apple will release a new 10.5-inch iPad next year. The production of the device is set to start in December.
Two new serious bugs have been recently found in iOS 10.1.1. According to the growing number of complaints on the Apple Support Communities forum, many iPhones with the latest version of the firmware on board jump from 30% to 1% charge in a few seconds and then turn themselves off. After the handsets are plugged in, they turn on and show 30% charge again.
Apple has never created a true transformer similar to the Surface Book. That is why ConceptsiPhone has created a new concept of a device with a large screen, metal frame and large full-size keyboard. Below you can take a look at the video showing this device.
The transformer called the Apple Book is supposed to work on macOS rather than iOS. It has a very strange design and frankly speaking I don’t think Apple will even make something similar to this transformer.
Here’s how the creators describe their concept:
New incredible 3D concept video that shows the 'Apple Book', new iDevice / Mac that combining iPad with MacBook!
What do you think about the transformer? Do you like it?
According to the latest report shared by a reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the next-generation iPhone will feature a glass back panel to support wireless charging. The expert believes that all 2017 iPhones will get glass back panels and that Pegatron will supply Apple with wireless chargers for these new handsets. Another reason for Apple to completely change the look of the iPhone 8 is Jonathan Ive’s desire to create a phone that looks like a sheet of glass.
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has recently published Apple’s patent application describing a foldable iPhone with flexible display.
The body of the handset will be foldable and may use different types of hinges. To make the smartphone display flexible enough, it would be placed in a way that would allow it to bend when the housing moves.
Phil Schiller has once again confirmed that using 32GB of RAM would affect the battery life of new MacBook Pro units. According to Apple executive, using more memory would require a different design of the logic board and physically smaller battery. Apart from that, since the 32GB DDR module requires much more power than the current LPDDR memory, there’s no way to install it without reducing the battery life and performance of the laptop.
Apple’s main rival, Samsung, is planning to release a Jet Black version of the Galaxy S7 as soon as early next month. The report comes from The Korea Herald and looks quite legitimate.
Apple has launched a new iPhone repair program. If you live in the United States and your iPhone 6s suddenly turns off from time to time, Apple will repair it at no cost provided that the handset has no signs of physical damage and third-party repairs.
It is Sunday today, which means it’s high time I told you about the most interesting posts of the last couple of days. Let’s not waste time and take a look at the articles worth your attention right now.
According to the latest report from a reliable Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, the stock availability of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus still leaves much to be desired. Apple is still trying to catch up with the demand. This suggests that not all users will get their phones in time during the holiday season.
Apple is reportedly planning to integrate Siri to the messages app to help people check and schedule events on their calendars and make payments using the virtual assistant.
Apple has announced the iPhone 6 Plus multi-touch repair program. The company is offering a display repair to those, who have encountered the so-called “Touch Disease” hardware fault. However, the program is a bit different from all other as Apple demands that the customers pay $150 for the repair, claiming the issue is caused by dropping the phone, not by hardware defect. The company also gives the money back to those who already paid for the repair.
