Vic Gundotra, former Googler and credited for creating Google+, has said in a Facebook post that he would never use an Android phone for clicking photos. Instead, he praises what Apple has managed to achieve with the iPhone 7 and computational photography.
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo in his latest note says that Samsung will soon be joined by LG Display in supplying OLED panels to iPhone. He claims that Apple is “committed” to having LG as one of its OLED supplier by 2018 and is strongly pushing the company for it.
Despite the launch of the Galaxy S8 and the age of the iPhone 7, the data collected by CIRP for the quarter ending June shows that more consumers switched to an iPhone from an Android than over the past 12 months.
Apple is reportedly setting up its own OLED panel research and development line in Taiwan after obtaining the necessary machinery from Sunic System. The latter is known for manufacturing systems required for setting up an OLED display production line.
According to reports coming out of the Korean media, LG Chemical will be the only supplier of batteries for Apple’s 2018 iPhone, known as the iPhone 9 as of now. This is no doubt a massive shift for Apple in terms of policy, as the company usually uses a combination of manufacturers to procure batteries for the iPhones. This is also pretty big for LG, as Apple will no doubt become one of its biggest clients.
A former Apple executive believes Apple has “fundamentally changed” ever since the death of the company’s former CEO Steve Jobs. The comment was made by Hugh Dubberly, former creative director at Apple, in a report from Wall Street Journal.
At this point, it is unclear if Apple will ship the iPhone 8 with a fingerprint scanner embedded into its display, place it at the rear, or ditch it altogether.

In his latest investor note, KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has laid down his predictions for the upcoming iPhones from Apple. The analyst believes Apple will be launching three new iPhones this year, including one with a 5.2-inch screen size featuring an all new design and an OLED display.
It’s officially the tenth anniversary of the original iPhone launching, and so people are reminiscing, including one of the individuals tasked with creating the original device’s software keyboard.
Bringing manufacturing to the U.S. was one of the biggest campaign slogans of President Donald Trump back on the campaign trail last year. He even talked about getting Apple to “start building their damn computers and things in this country.” A new Bloomberg report illustrates why it doesn’t make sense for Apple to bring production to the U.S.
