Apple has reportedly asked its supply chain partners to have OLED displays ready for the iPhone 7s in 2017. The company is said to be working with three manufacturers, but there’s still uncertainty over whether the displays will be ready in time.
Apple is developing an updated iPhone 5s with refreshed internals, including a faster A8 processor, according to a new report. The device will provide consumers with a smaller, more affordable alternative to the latest iPhones that won’t bring huge sacrifices in performance and compatibility.
Apple’s new iPhone 6c, a smaller and more affordable alternative to its high-end smartphone lineup, will make its debut in mid-2016, according to a new report from IHS analyst Kevin Wang.
As per industry sources of DigiTimes, Apple has placed LCD display driver orders for the iPhone 7 — due to be launched in Q3, 2016 — with Synaptics. This indicates that the company’s plan of using its in-house touch panel with an integrated driver has fallen behind schedule or has hit a roadblock.
