This could be Apple’s most interesting design yet for a future iPhone

Foldable OLED iPhone Design

It turns out that Samsung isn’t the only company working on a foldable smartphone, as Apple is also toying with that idea. Samsung’s foldable phone concepts have been around for years at trade shows, so we already knew the South Korean giant has been working on such devices — in fact, Samsung is currently deciding whether to go forward with a 2017 launch for a folding smartphone. Apple’s similar plans, however, are much more secretive.

New MacBook Pro feature virtually confirmed in Apple code

MacBook Pro 2016 OLED Display
The MacBook Pro is getting a massive redesign this year, multiple reports have said. The laptop will be even thinner and lighter than predecessors, but its best new feature might be a touch-ready secondary OLED display that’s supposed to replace the entire function key row atop the keyboard.

The iPhone can’t get an OLED screen soon enough

Galaxy Note 7 Display Review
Apple has the best LCD displays in the iPhone and iPad, and this year’s iPhone might receive further improvements similar to what Apple did with the 9.7-inch iPad Pro. But that doesn’t mean Apple’s displays are the best in town. A review of the Galaxy Note 7’s AMOLED screen indicates that Samsung has been able to improve OLED screen technology since launching the Galaxy S7 series this spring. The Galaxy Note 7 matches, or breaks, some of the records of the Galaxy S7, which was touted as having one of the best smartphone displays in town.

Machine learning and “molecular Tinder” may change the game for OLED screens

A blue OLED created by the University of Michigan - one of many over the years that does not quite meet demands. To say there are a lot of molecules out there is kind of an understatement. So searching for one or two in particular is like looking for a needle in a galaxy-spanning haystack. Fortunately, the science of machine learning and the irrepressible need for humans to swipe left and right on things make the search a lot easier, as Harvard and MIT researchers have found.

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 …
