All signs point to Apple releasing at least one OLED iPhone in 2017. The most recent report, from Nikkei Asian Review (via MacRumors), claims that later this year Apple will release two iPhone models with LCD displays, and one 5.8-inch iPhone model with an "organic light-emitting diode display." The Nikkei report is in step with previous rumors that claim Apple plans to release a larger iPhone 8 model without a physical Home button or bezels surrounding the display. However, it will take the iPhone-maker a couple of years to go full OLED for all its handset, according to The Bell.
Three seems to be the magical number for Apple in 2017. Recent rumors have suggested that the Cupertino company plans to release three new iPad and iPhone models this year. The next-generation iPhone lineup will include a 4.7-inch model, a 5.5-inch model and a high-end 5.8-inch model, according to the DigiTimes.
With the next generation iPhone just months away, details regarding Apple's flagship smartphone are coming into focus. Previous reports have pointed to a radical new design in the works, set to make a splash at this fall's 10th anniversary of the iPhone. Apple may skip the iPhone 8 name entirely, opting for another title such as the iPhone X for its top-tier model. Two additional models that could be dubbed the iPhone 7s are also expected to launch in September.
Apple will release the first iOS 10.3 beta on January 10th, according to tipster Sonny Dickson. Little is known about the rumored update, but Dickson claims it will include a new " Theatre mode" with "popcorn-shaped Control Center icon." Dickson, who is known for his accurate sources, doesn't know what functions "Theatre" mode will provide, but some Apple fans have speculated it will be a new Night Shift-type option.
Three iPhone models are set to arrive later in 2017 according to a report by Mac Otakara. Apple is expected to introduce a 5-inch iPhone 7s, expanding the available size choices beyond the current iPhone and iPhone Plus. This model would fall between the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch display sizes found on the latest devices.
