Upcoming huge iPhone redesign will include the new feature everyone wants

2017 iPhone Rumors
One recurring iPhone rumor claims that Apple is on the verge of a major shift when it comes to iPhone display quality. The iPhone 7 models will ship with LCD screens, just like all their predecessors. But starting next year at least one new iPhone 7s/8 will have an AMOLED display. That’s the kind of screen mostly found on Samsung’s “iPhone killers,” including the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note lines. In recent years, experts found AMOLED screens to offer a superior experience compared to LCD panels. Even though the most recent LCD displays inside the iPhone and iPad Pro have also been praised in reviews, AMOLED might offer Apple an added edge in the future. Now, new reports out of Asia indicate that Apple suppliers have already been informed that the OLED iPhone is coming.

MacBook OLED bar concept with multiple USB-C ports & monster trackpad…just…take my money

KGI analyst report from two weeks ago broke the news that a new Apple MacBook, due later in the year, would debut a new OLED touch screen technology above the keyboard that will replace the function row keys. A leaked shell of a MacBook days later seemed to at least confirm the report along with showing 2 USB-C ports on the sides and a huge touchpad. The MacBook OLED bar rumor has been a controversial one for us and many of you generating lots of opinions.

However, one of our readers Cameron did a mockup that changed all of that for me and many others. Taking a look at the possibilities with Siri, many of our readers came up with excellent ideas for apps that would use the bar. 3D designer Martin Hajek has done a few better with some amazing renders that take the OLED display from gimmick to “TAKE MY MONEY.”

Opinion: More thoughts on how the new MacBook Pro’s rumored touch-panel could work

In an opinion piece a couple of weeks ago, I described the way I hope the rumored touch-panel will be used: dynamic content available to app developers to create one-touch shortcuts. Effectively you’d get similar benefits to a physical keyboard skin but for every app. Check out that piece first if you haven’t already read it so I don’t need to repeat the same points here.

Of course, there are potential downsides to that too. At present, I’m used to being able to adjust the volume or play/pause music, for example, just by pressing a key. My fingers know where those keys are, so it’s very easy to do. If the standard functions were overwritten by apps, it would become a fiddlier process to do things we currently take for granted.

So here are a few thoughts about how Apple might give us the best of both worlds – and the somewhat provocative view that the touch-panel might still be a good thing even if it turns out to be nothing more than a gimmick …

Poll: Would you prefer an OLED touch bar instead of traditional function keys?

Many people have been eagerly waiting for Apple to refreshed its entire MacBook Pro lineup with a thinner design, faster internals, Siri support, and more. A report yesterday said all of that is coming later this year in Q4, but added an additional detail: an OLED touch bar above the keyboard that would replace the row of function keys.

This is a new idea that hasn’t really been suggested for Apple’s MacBook Pro lineup before, but it has a variety of interesting possibilities. But with a significant change like that comes a steep, steep learning curve. The quick shortcuts we’ve all become accustomed to using throughout OS X would have an added twist, but could they potentially become easier to access in the long run? In the end, however, it would all come down to whether or not the OLED touch bar improved navigation enough to warrant a few weeks of relearning how to use your MacBook Pro’s keyboard.
