LG Display will be no longer building LCD panels for non-OLED iPhones, the company has confirmed now. Moreover, its parent LG has warned investors that it is seriously considering exiting the smartphone business entirely due to declining shipments and strong competition.
Handsets equipped with OLED displays are particularly adept at displaying high-contrast colors due to the true blacks they exhibit, especially when compared to handsets sporting traditional LCD displays. On the other hand, OLED displays are also notorious for screen burn-in issues, and that’s where screensavers come in.
Modern iPhones such as the iPhone X, XS, and 11 Pro (including their larger counterparts) come standard with OLED displays, and while Apple has already done plenty to mitigate screen burn-in with these devices, they haven’t yet adopted screensavers on the iOS platform. With that in mind, a new jailbreak tweak release called ScreenSafe by iOS developer Kushy comes off as particularly interesting.
According to a new supply chain report relayed this morning by Taiwanese media, Apple is definitely expected to release a brand-new notebook with a sixteen-inch display alongside refreshed MacBook Air and MacBook Pro laptops in October of this year.
LCD technology is one of the ways Apple differentiates more affordable iPhones from flagship models. If the latest report is anything to go by, the Cupertino company is prepping to getting rid of LCD screens and transition its smartphone lineup to OLED-only models in 2020.
The Wall Street Journal on Friday reported that it has learned from people familiar with Apple's roadmap that the company plans on releasing three new iPhone models in 2019, with a refreshed iPhone XS Max picking up a triple-lens setup out the back and a second-generation iPhone XR gaining two rear cameras instead of one.
Although Apple advertises in support documents and elsewhere on its website that the new iPhone XR series features HDR10 and Dolby Vision support, these colorful smartphones in reality do not have a display compliant with the high dynamic range (HDR) specification.
Alongside Apple’s flagship iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max handsets, Apple also unveiled a budget handset known as the iPhone Xr at the company’s September 12th event.
In this piece, we’ll outline the under-the-hood specifications that come standard on the budget-friendly iPhone Xr:
Apple is expected to retire the tenth anniversary iPhone X next month after the handset spent less than a year on the market. Nonetheless, the iPhone X design will live on in the release of three new Apple handsets for 2018.
A plethora of Android smartphones on the market today support ‘always-on-display’ functionality in which the background remains dark, but the time and date appear in legible white font for your convenience.
Until now, you couldn’t experience this effect on an Apple handset, but a new jailbreak tweak dubbed Semperon by iOS developer LaughingQuoll mimics this functionality on any jailbroken iPhone or iPad running iOS 11.
As expected, Foxconn on Thursday broke ground on a new 20 million-square-foot complex in Wisconsin that will make LCD panels. The project, first announced in 2017, could bring thousands of new jobs to the midwest state.
During a Thursday ceremony in Wisconsin, President Donald Trump will no doubt call this week's groundbreaking of Foxconn's 20 million-square-foot complex that will make LCD panels an example of how his administration is "making America great again." That may be true for the citizens of Wisconsin in the long-run, but right now it has become a far costlier proposition than once imagined, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Apple reportedly expects to sell more iPhones in its coming 2018 lineup that will be outfitted with cheaper LCD screens than the models equipped with pricey OLEDs.
