LG Display OLED order tipped for Apple

LG Display OLED order tipped for Apple

The iPhone 8 (the 2018 version of the potential device) may have an OLED display provided by LG Display. A tip comes from Business Korea speaking with whom they suggest is "a senior official at LG Display." That official apparently said that LG Display "received a request to take part in a bid for receiving an order for small and medium-sized OLEDs from Apple. At the end of June, we will make a decision based on OLED production technology, capacity and the accompanying investment volume in an extraordinary board meeting."

Man goes to China, builds iPhone from parts sold in markets

Man goes to China, builds iPhone from parts sold in markets

Smartphones are such a commodity these days that people take for granted the amount of work it takes to make one. Sure, that process has been pretty much automated, but that doesn’t take away the complexity of a smartphone. And what better way to learn about that complexity by building your smartphone. Better yet, your own iPhone! That is exactly what adventurer extraordinaire Scotty Allen of Strange Parts did when he was in China. What he ended up building was a perfectly working refurbished iPhone 6s at half the price of a band new one.

iPhone 8 Touch ID troubles may stall Apple’s OLED plans

iPhone 8 Touch ID troubles may stall Apple’s OLED plans

The anticipated 'iPhone 8' with an OLED display has one big thing getting in its way, and that's the Touch ID fingerprint sensor -- at least according to an analyst whose research note recently became public. According to that note, the 5.8-inch iPhone, which is currently being referred to as the 'iPhone 8,' will have an edge-to-edge OLED panel, and Apple has to figure out how to embed the Touch ID beneath it. If an adequate solution isn't found relatively soon, the company may be forced to shake things up and change the position of this sensor.

iPhone 8’s humongous release tipped to force Samsung Display hand

iPhone 8’s humongous release tipped to force Samsung Display hand

OLED displays are coming in hot for Apple's next smartphone and in no place is it more apparent than Samsung Display's factories. At least right here before manufacturing begins in earnest, a report from South Korea-based ET News says that Samsung Display's latest move is to convert an ASA LCD factory to OLED for one reason only. That is making room for the capacity needed to create the iPhone 8 - or iPhone Pro, or whatever you'd like to call it. Just don't call it a comeback - or an iPhone 7s, which will come with an LCD panel, more than likely.

Apple Clips now available to download

Apple Clips now available to download

Apple Clips has hit the App Store, with the new social video editing app a free download for those with an iPhone or iPad. Announced back in March, Clips joins iMovie for iOS rather than replacing it, as a second way to edit videos on the go. In fact, the two are very different animals: whereas iMovie is, like its desktop counterpart, focused on time-based edits, Apple Clips is more freeform in its approach.

This iPhone 8 video shows what Galaxy S8 does right and LG G6 does wrong

This iPhone 8 video shows what Galaxy S8 does right and LG G6 does wrong

It's difficult to say exactly why it is Samsung and Apple dominate the smartphone market - but this video takes a crack at it. What we're looking at is a spinning iPhone 8 concept - a device that's most likely going to come out next year, but commands search terms in Google this year because "iPhone 7s" is too many characters to be bothered typing. What we see here is style - design finesse - a sense of assuredness in the phone's overall excellence. That's what Apple and Samsung have, or appear to have, that most other phone companies lack.

iOS 10.3.1 released quickly to address iPhone 5, 5c issues

iOS 10.3.1 released quickly to address iPhone 5, 5c issues

It has just been a week since Apple rolled out iOS 10.3 for iOS devices, so it was definitely unexpected that Apple would follow it up immediately with a 10.3.1 release. Especially without a beta testing period, this mysterious update naturally raised a few questions. Although Apple would later release a note on what the update fixes, a security issue related to Wi-Fi, it might have left out the equally important part about fixing the update would have broken the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c.
