Some iPhone 13 models to be released in 2021 may take advantage of LG-made OLED panels with low-power LPTO backplane technology, resulting in a more power-efficient device.
Apple's augmented reality (AR) glasses are expected to arrive in 2021, and now Sony has been mentioned as a probably supplier of sophisticated OLED panels for the rumored accessory.
The Spotify Music app is one of the best alternatives to Apple Music in terms of online music streaming for the iPhone or iPad, and while the application itself already sports a somewhat ‘dark’ aesthetic, there are certainly some areas where it could do with improvement for those who like using dark mode or who use an OLED display-equipped handset.
Blackout is a newly released and free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer atebitsy that brings improved dark mode and OLED display support to the Spotify Music app, and it does so by providing users with an always-blacked out Now Playing interface background, as depicted by the before and after screenshot examples above.
Apple made the right decision when switching from traditional LCD display panels to higher-end OLED display panels in its flagship smartphones, but one can’t help but question why iOS doesn’t take better advantage of the deeper black color tones made possible with OLED display technology.
If you have a jailbroken OLED display-equipped iPhone at your disposal and you’ve been asking yourself the aforementioned question since the day you first picked up the device, then we think you’re likely to enjoy a free jailbreak tweak dubbed Lisa by iOS developers Litten and Esquilli.
Apple reportedly paid Samsung's display-making arm nearly a billion dollars as a penalty for unfulfilled orders of pricey OLED panels for iPhones in the second quarter of 2020.
With this year's Worldwide Developers Conference now officially behind us, even more attention can be put ahead toward the iPhone 12 lineup, which is expected to arrive this fall (with iOS 14 on board!).
Ever since Apple first started integrating OLED display on its iPhones, starting with the iPhone X in 2017, we’ve witnessed a steady increase in the number of jailbreak tweaks attempting to bring a true always-on display experience to the platform. One of the latest attempts comes by way of respected veteran tweak developer Elias Limneos and has been aptly named Glow.
Like other always-on display tweaks before it, Glow takes full advantage of the OLED display in Apple’s high-end handsets to express true darks for the background. It simultaneously displays pertinent details such as the date, time, and battery level, along an indicator to let you know whether you’ve got any missed notifications. Best of all, it does all of this while consuming as little power as possible.
If you’ve got a jailbroken iOS device at your disposal and you’re in the market for a really cool new display experience for your iPhone, then you should probably take a few minutes to check out this new jailbreak tweak release called Photon by iOS developer cemck.
Photon appears to be a true ambient display experience for the Lock screen on iOS devices, and it displays pertinent information using a variety of different methods and in combination with existing popular Lock screen-centric tweaks such as Complications, Grupi, Jellyfish, Sylph, Xen HTML, and many others.
A new report aims to shed some light on just how Apple will implement its all-OLED lineup of iPhones later this year.
The checkra1n team is best known for its checkm8 bootrom exploit-based jailbreak tool for A9-A11 devices. But those closely following outspoken members of the team on Twitter, namely Luca Todesco (@qwertyoruiopz), likely took note of some particularly interesting teasers Tweeted Tuesday morning and afternoon.
A series of images shared by Todesco himself appear to depict checkra1n-centric hacks being deployed and displayed on a MacBook Pro’s OLED Touch Bar:
China's BOE has been working for some time now to become the third supplier of OLED panels to apple, with a new report alleging that the company has been investing heavily in iPhone-only lines in anticipation of Apple orders.
Ever since Apple first introduced an OLED display in its smartphone lineup, there’ve been countless jailbreak tweak releases attempting to take full advantage of it. From always-on displays, to revolutionary new notification indicators, there has been no shortage of innovation on this front.
The latest addition to the party is a newly released jailbreak tweak called Dots 2 by iOS developer Shyam Lad, and as depicted in the screenshot examples above, this tweak displays pulsating colorful dots for missed notifications at the top of an always-on pitch black display when the device is locked.
