Due to Japan’s restrictions on the sale of important raw materials for manufacturing screens and flash memory to South Korea, Samsung’s production line has been affected. As a major supplier of iPhone OLED screens, Samsung’s production will be affected more if this restriction continues. Therefore, there are rumors that Apple will use the OLED display supplied by BOE on the next generation iPhone.
In recent years, BOE has worked hard to launch an OLED production line and plans to mass-produce OLED displays this year. For Apple, the screen supplier is not the only one. The OLED display panels are provided by Samsung, and the OLED screen on the MacBook and Apple Watch is made by LG. These are all Korean manufacturers, and Japan’s raw material supply will inevitably have a great impact. Apple is planning ahead, and choosing BOE should also guarantee the output of the products.
Previously, there were rumors that Apple would cancel the 3D Touch screen pressure sensing function, which had previously been available on iPhones with pressure-sensitive screen hardware. Now in the beta version of iOS 13, the “Quick Actions” menu can also appear by long pressing the app icon. In fact, as early as the iPhone XR, it has been equipped with the function called “Haptic Touch”, which can simulate the 3D Touch function. So Apple’s removal of 3D Touch has already paved the way ahead of time.
What new changes are there in the 2019 iPhone? The iPhone XS will come with a square-shaped rear camera design, while the iPhone XR will sport a dual-camera module. As for the battery, the iPhone XR will be packed with a 3110mAh battery, the iPhone 11 will sport a 3322mAh battery, and the iPhone 11 Max will feature a 3650mAh battery. In addition, the 2019 iPhone will also support reverse wireless charging.
Apple is expected to launch new iPhone in September 2019.
