Apple Watch tipped to move from OLED to Micro-LED in 2017

One of the biggest ongoing rumors for the next few years of iPhones is that Apple will switch the smartphone's display from LCD to OLED. This has previously been expected to take place in 2017, but recently analysts have pushed that prediction back to 2018. However, it seems the same timeframe will see a change in the Apple Watch's display technology as well, the latest report from Taiwan's DigiTimes indicates.

Renderings show what an OLED MacBook might look like

Back in late May rumors started to crop up that Apple might be out to make a big change to its MacBook for the first time in a while. According to these rumors prototype MacBooks had been spied that were fitted with an OLED strip across the top of the keyboard where the function keys would normally sit. The cool thing about replacing keys with an OLED touch sensitive strip is that the buttons on an OLED can be customized depending on what you are doing. A slew of renderings have now turned up showing what the final product might look like.

Samsung’s Mirror Displays get installed in Korean salon

We've seen a lot of different styles and methods people have used to create mirrors, most of them in the bathroom, that also functioned as some sort of display. Almost all of them have one thing in common however. Or two, actually. They are all DIY projects, and almost none of them are commercially available. Samsung, however, might have just taken out the excitement behind those projects. It has recently unveiled what it bills as the first public and commercial installation of its Mirror Display solution that combines both mirror and monitor into one.

iPhone 7 may be Apple’s biggest launch ever with Samsung’s OLED display

Reports this week suggest that Apple's next big iPhone launch won't only be a big event because it's a "tick" year in their "tick-tock" schedule - it'll be big because of their Samsung connection. It's not unheard of for Apple to use Samsung parts in their smartphones - they've been doing it since the very beginning. What is unheard of thus far is Apple's use of an OLED display panel from Samsung on any one of their devices. With the use of an OLED panel, the iPhone will be brighter and more intense than ever before.

In the run-up to the big iPhone 7 reveal later this year, Apple is said to be working on an even more fundamental change to its best-selling smartphone. Though the Cupertino company has used LCD screens for its handsets since the first iPhone in 2007 - and is expected to continue to do so for the iPhone 7 - that could all change come next year, as the lure of OLED finally tips Retina display into the opposing camp.

iPhone could get AMOLED screen, wireless charging next year

Apple might not be radically changing the iPhone. At least not this year. But it won't be long before it does. Contradicting his own earlier report, Ming-Chi Kuo, the famed Apple analyst and prophet of upcoming products and features, has pulled forward the timetable for Apple's somewhat new yet familiar next iPhone, which could be the iPhone 8. Instead of 2018, it will be the 2017 iPhone that will get the rumored new display material and even wireless charging. Despite the new features, however, it could be wrapped in a design similar to older iPhones.

Apple said to make iPhone switch to OLED in 2017

One of the longest running questions about the iPhone in recent years has been when Apple will make the switch from LCD displays to OLED. The most recent reports from last fall had pegged Apple as working with parts manufacturers for a change in display in either 2018 or 2019, but a recent report from Japanese business publication Nikkei says Cupertino has moved up their plans, and is now aiming for a OLED iPhone debut in 2017.
