The next iPhone is due to be unveiled later this year and we've now heard that it'll incorporate new screen technology. That is according to new rumours being reported by The China Times who apparently spoke to sources inside Apple's supply chain.
According to the rumours Apple will switch to "touch-on display" technology in the iPhone 6. Touch-on-display technology, developed by Taiwenese company Chimei Innolux, will ensure that the display is extremely thin , while also improving the touch-screens responsiveness.
The iPhone 5 uses "in-cell touch technology" which combines the display and touch layer into one. This makes the display thinner than ever before, but apparently it's been causing some issues in manufacturing that have led to a iPhone 5 supply shortage.
This information is still pretty sketchy and we don't yet have have any solid information about the next iPhone.
Infact, we're still not sure about whether the next iPhone Apple launches will be the iPhone 5S or the iPhone 6. Yesterday, we heard it would be the iPhone 6 and that the device is already in testing, so we'll refer to as that until we hear anything contradictory.
The iPhone 6 is expected to be unveiled later this year and is likely to hit markets in September. So far we don't have any details about the smartphone other than it's rumoured to come in a much wider colour range and could even come in multiple screen-sizes.
As soon as 3G get more information about the iPhone 5S/iPhone 6 you'll be the first to know !
