Will the iPhone 7 Feature an OLED Display?

Imagine an iPhone display that's thinner, looks better, and extends battery life to boot. Reports indicate that Apple supplier Foxconn is partnering with InnoLux on a new manufacturing plant. The facility would be dedicated to producing OLED panels for Apple wearables and smartphones.

The Foxconn plant is slated to enter mass production in 2016, which could align smartphone OLED production with an iPhone 7 launch later that year. The Apple Watch is currently the only Apple product known to utilize an OLED display, despite past rumors of the technology heading to the iPhone.

Rumored 'iPhone 6s' May Have Dual Lens Camera, Force Sensor

Although the next iPhone isn't due for another eight months (if Apple sticks to its traditional schedule), its never too early for the rumor mill. The dual lens rumor has been floating around for at least a month or two now. Today, new speculation from Taiwan, spotted by AppleInsider, supports it, and suggests the next generation iPhone could also have a "force sensor."

A dual lens system would allow the sensor to collect more light, making it more functional in low light situations. It also might be capable of optical zoom, which zooms with the actual lens, as opposed to a digital zoom, allowing for much higher photo quality.

What is the iPhone 6s Mini?

First and foremost, the iPhone 6s mini is currently a rumor. According to AppleInsider, analyst Timothy Arcuri believes Apple may launch a new 4-inch iPhone alongside the 4.7-inch iPhone 6s and 5.5-inch iPhone 6s Plus next year. The device would be named the iPhone 6s mini, presumably to match the upcoming iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

The refresh of the smaller-screen iPhone would keep one-handed usability in the lineup, which Apple always highlighted when marketing the iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, and iPhone 5c. One feature of the larger iPhones is Reachability, which uses software to make user interface elements reachable with one hand. The iPhone 5c would probably be replaced by the iPhone 6s mini next fall, but what kind of specifications can we expect on an updated 4-inch device?

iPhone 6 and Hipsters Don't Mix: Apple's New Handset is Bending In People's Pockets

Here's a public service announcement, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are not water- or skinny jean proof. Some iPhone owners have reported that their new handsets have been bending in their pockets. A MacRumors forum member said their iPhone 6 Plus was damaged "during a day of dancing, dining, and driving to a wedding," while another iPhone owner said his device became bent after he just sat down.

Bendgate isn't really much of a surprise, as Wired points out, both the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are "just over a quarter-inch thick and made largely of aluminum, a flexible metal". Storing your new iPhone in your tight pants pocket while bending, sitting or moving may cause it to bend and can even lead to costly repairs, as some owners are quickly finding out.

Apple Rumor Mill Heating Up: iPhone 6 to Feature Qualcomm MDM9625 Modem, iWatch Delayed Until 2015 and More

It is that time of year when Apple news turns into Apple gossip, and there was a lot of gossip the last few days. GeekBar today (via G4Games) posted an alleged image of an iPhone 6 logic board that shows a Qualcomm MDM9625 modem. This means previous rumors claiming that the iPhone 6 will support LTE Category 6 are untrue, if the image is legit. The pictured chipset does support LTE Cat.4 and can reach speeds up to 150 Mbps, but not 300 Mbps like previous reports have suggested. This is not a big deal since most carriers around the world do not even support LTE Advanced.
