Apple Is Secretly Developing Its Own Screens For The First Time

Those challenges apparently nearly made Apple shut down the project a year ago, but it didn't, and now working displays are being produced. According to a report by Bloomberg, the company is using MicroLED technology in an effort to replace Samsung's OLED displays in future Apple devices. Now a new report has surfaced online suggesting price of the 5.8-inch variant.

Digitimes said that Apple plans to launch a new 5.85-inch OLED iPhone this year as an upgrade to the existing iPhone X, but the vendor has managed to reduce the new device's initial manufacturing bill of materials (MBOM) to a level much lower than that of its present level. This is to avoid the same low yield in 3D sensors that caused delays in the launch and availability of the iPhone X. According to a report by Apple Insider, Apple was theorized to ship a "blush gold" iPhone X past year, but purportedly decided against it in light of production problems. The report further highlights that due to the low demand of iPhone X Apple purchased fewer OLED panels from Samsung than it has commited.

A better route would be to pick up a previous-generation iPhone since it performs better than a lot of modern-day Android devices and you'll still be in line to receive software and security updates down the road. According to Lin, Apple has made a deal with Samsung Display that could prevent the cost increases, at least from the panel side.

Another U.S. official cited United Nations data showing more than 1.5 million Venezuelans have been displaced by the crisis. Expectedly, President Maduro's government has reacted strongly to the USA move by calling it a "new imperial aggression".

The report says the 5.8-inch OLED iPhone will cost around 10 per cent to manufacture compared to the current-generation iPhone X. In comparison, the iPhone X costs roughly $400 (or approx Rs 26,026) to manufacture, which means a total reduction of $40 (or approx Rs 2602). While the display on the iPhone X is extremely color accurate, it's still not quite ideal.

One of the issues with the current iPhone X display - a flaw that's inherent to the iPhone X's display type - is that when the screen is viewed off-axis, there is a dramatic color shift.

Here are three ways that Apple could improve upon the iPhone X's display. If Apple were to pass on that savings to customers, the next iPhone X could cost about $900 instead of $999. It wouldn't surprise me, then, to see Apple carry this pricing strategy over to the new iPhone models, especially since Apple appears to be reshaping its iPhone segmentation strategy to mirror the iPad's.
