Apple is still driving display technology.
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is one of the best display designers out there. Some may lambast the amount of pixels the company uses in its devices and others might point to even higher densities in competitors, but it was Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) who started the race to get a great display into the hands of every customer. The firm is not done in the area, however.
According to a Korean News outlet, there are a reasonable amount of changes coming to Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) devices in the coming year or so, and many of them will directly affect the displays on the company’s devices. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will not be outdone by products from Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) or Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN), or at least not for long.
Apple devices incoming
According to the report, which was picked up by 9to5mac.com, the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone screen is going to continue to get bigger. The phone will eventually exceed 5 inches, a number few thought Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) would go over until now. There will be a new iPad with more powerful specs, to compete with Windows 8 tablets. That device is likely to be around 13 inches across the diagonal.
The iPad Mini is going to move to a higher resolution screen, but it won’t happen until next year, according to the report. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is also planning the move to OLED screens. An OLED will be included in the Apple smartwatch.
Apple screen changes
According to 9to5mac.com author Mark Gurman, who took the time to compare the rumors to other reports rumors about Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) displays, some of these rumors are more believable than others. The iPad is probably going to get a bigger version, but an iPhone with a screen bigger than 5 inches in unlikely to come out in the next year.
The late release of a high resolution iPad Mini also appears to fit in with reports of supply problems. According to Gurman, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) may well be headed toward using OLED-based displays but it’s far from a certain prospect just yet.
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is continuing to drive display technologies and the company is continuing to drive rumors about that technology. Despite Gurman’s endeavors to verify the reports, some of them seem unlikely. Seeing as they’re coming from the same source, these appear to be targeted spraying in many directions at once.
