As perÂ Chinese site Feng.com, Apple has signed up LG Display as the primary display supplier for the upcoming iPhone 6. The device is rumored to come in two variants, one with a 4.7-inch display and the other with an even larger 5.5-inch display.
There have been severalÂ rumorsÂ that suggest that Apple will use sapphire glass display instead of Gorilla Glass either in theÂ next generation iPhoneÂ or its rumoredÂ iWatchÂ that are expected to launched later this year. Sapphire is much tougher than other types of glasses, and is very less likely to scratch.
Earlier this month, a crazy rumor predicted that a new version of Apple’s EarPods will come with inbuiltÂ Heart Rate and Blood Pressure sensors, but that rumor was found to be a hoax. LG however is turning this rumor into reality with itsÂ Heart Rate Earphones, that were originally introduced in January at CES.
I didn’t get the utility of a device with a curved display. Many of you also wondered the same thing when we reported over the weekend that Apple was working on 4.7-inch and 5.5-inchÂ iPhones with curved displays.Â
The idea of a curved iWatch from Apple landing in 2014 is not as far-fetched as it may appear. According to Reuters, Apple smartphone competitor and LCD supplier LG is working on a flexible, curved display for smartphones. Though details on the company’s smartphone is sparse, it is supposedly mass producing the curved displays now in preparation for a November launch.
As awesome as AirPlay is, it does have that teeny weeny little flawâ€”it’s proprietary to Apple. Now, wouldn’t it be great to have something likeÂ AirPlay that could run on TVs, set-top boxes, or Internet-connected home theaters that gave the same easy discoverability andÂ even more features (like letting a TV launch an app on your phone)? That’s way the open-protocol DIAL is shooting for and they have some pretty big backers in YouTube and Netflix.
