The Apple Watch was the first Apple product to integrate an OLED display back in 2015. Then came the iPhone X in the fall of 2017. Now all iPhones feature the technology, which provides several advantages over conventional LCD displays. Reports have pointed to Apple adopting OLED or even Mini-LED displays in upcoming iPad and MacBook models.
According to reports, Apple continues research and development on its upcoming augmented reality headset known as "Apple Glass". The latest points to collaboration with long-time supplier TSMC to create a cutting-edge display for the wearable device. Micro OLED elements are built more like semiconductors than regular LCD or OLED displays. The concept rendering above by Eunho Kim takes existing Apple design language and imagines what a pair of AR glasses might look like.
The iPhone XS Max has matched or exceeded the best smartphone displays ever tested by DisplayMate. In the company's iPhone XS Max OLED Display Technology Shoot-Out, the iPhone XS Max was shown to deliver multiple improvements over the iPhone X, setting new smartphone display records in the process.
Not the first question Apple fans would have asked just a short week ago. Pairing the iPhone SE 2 with an iPhone X-styled notch seems unlikely, as the SE has typically been priced as Apple's entry-level 4-inch device. This hasn't stopped case designer Olixar from betting this year's iPhone SE update will be a radical departure from its current design.
According to Bank of America Merrill Lynch analyst Wamsi Mohan, Apple has radical plans for the future of its iPhone lineup. Mohan issued a report stating that Apple was working on a flexible iPhone model, for release as early as 2020. In considering the upcoming new design, the Wall Street firm also reiterated its buy rating on Apple stock.
