Next Generation iPhone X To Be Much Cheaper?

The tech company's engineers have already manufactured "fully functional" MicroLED screens for Apple Watches. These MicroLED screens promise to make smartphones much slimmer, brighter, and with longer battery life, but they're also much more hard to develop than traditional OLED displays. Late previous year, Apple invested nearly $400 million into a company that produces these components.

Engineers have since been making progress and the technology is now at an advanced stage, they said, although consumers will probably have to wait a few years before seeing the results.

This is another step that Apple is take to bring parts-manufacturing home.

The company has designed chips powering its mobile devices for several years.

The MicroLED displays are being developed at a secret plant in California and has made a huge investment for this, according to the report. Remember that the current iPhone 8 Plus, which comes at a $100 premium to the iPhone 8, actually has significant specification upgrades compared to the iPhone 8 including a sharper display, more memory, and a dual-lens camera system.

MicroLED screens would replaced current OLED displays. It seems that Apple managed to talk the price down enough to stick with OLED, even though it had to reduce its orders from Samsung Display, which left it in a tricky negotiating position. That would be an innovation that Apple fans would be willing to pay for. This particular development doesn't seem too far off as Bloomberg confirmed that Apple is now working on a new pencil stylus for its iPad series. Mass producing the new screens will require new manufacturing equipment.

The temporary name change is an indication that Apple is continuing its trend of transitioning its product and services away from its iconic "i" naming scheme.

At the moment, the iPhone X is available in two colors - silver and space gray. "It's big enough to get through the engineering builds [and] lets us keep everything in-house during the development stages.'" .

The survey, which is based off of Rescuecom's own data about calls to its service, gives Apple its only A+ reliability grade, and a reliability score of 665. As a norm, most smartphone makers buy ready-made screens from suppliers.

Despite this, Lin claims Apple has reached an agreement with Samsung Display to procure OLED panels without a cost increase - thereby leading to the inclusion of the premium display panel in the "affordable" 5.85-inch iPhone X successor.
