Apple Inc. has many rumors surrounding it right now. However, the most prominent pieces of talk seem to agree that the company is making efforts to improve its screen tech. There are talks of OLED displays being used on the upcoming iPads. The same is reported about the highly anticipated iPhone 8. The next iMac is expected to blow rivals out the water with a brilliant 5K display. And even the next range of MacBooks are said to be getting some revolutionary screen tech.
Apple 5K iMac
Reportedly, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is trying to get further ahead of its rivals in the creative PC space. Online talks suggest the company’s upcoming iMac will feature a magnificent 5K resolution display. The rumors aren’t at all far-fetched and the company just confirmed that iMac 2016 will make use of Intel’s (NASDAQ:INTC) new Kaby Lake processors.
Several weeks back, the iPhone 7 maker made news of its plan to stop making the iconic Thunderbolt Display. It was then heard Apple had a hand in creating the new, 27-inch UltraFine 5K monitor by LG. Some tech reports even pegged it as the Thunderbolt’s successor. Apple Inc. is known to have an in-house replacement is on its way, and it is expected to relay images in glorious 5K.
The release of the iMac will re-cement Apple as the king of the creative PC market. It was first thought that tech firm would announce the computer in early. However, September came by and only saw the unveiling of the iPhone 7 range and Apple Watch Series 2. October held a new line of MacBooks with innovative features, but no new iMac in sight. Now all eyes are set on the iMac, a machine that will blow all its rivals right out of the water.
New iPad screen size
Back in August, Ming-Chi Kou of KGI Securities suggested a new product would be added to the iPad range next year. Speculators grew convinced that it would be the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro. Ten will be a very significant number for Apple in 2017. Next year will mark 10 years since the first iPhone was released. Expert believe Apple will pulling out the stops with its 2017 products.
But a more plausible reason for introducing a new size to the iPad line-up would its appeal in certain markets. The 10.5 inch device will be a gap filler between the more personally used, smaller iPads and their larger, corporate-intense counterparts.
“Apple is launching the 10-inch iPad, mostly because 10-inch and larger tablets have been popular among enterprises,” DigiTimes reports. The U.S. education sectors appears to be very fond of larger iPads, too. The largest, 12.9-inch iPad Pro is thought to be most appealing for work-related tasks. However, the drawback is that it goes for a hefty cost. The current 9.7-inch iPad could be too small while the 12.9-inch version may be intimidating and too costly. A screen size wedged somewhere in the middle of these to could be the perfect supplement to boost iPad sales.
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) may be letting go of LCD in favor of OLED displays. This will make the iPhone 8 more resistant to screen damage, bringing in a new durability element to the iPhone along with better displays. OLED screens are lot more flexible than LCD and normal LED. The screen tech also offers better color and more vivid displays. Beyond that, the display tech consumes less power. OLED allows for faster responses as well.
