Every year Apple wants to drastically improve the iPhone displays. The company is proud to have some of the best, if not the best mobile screens in the industry, and therefore, when it comes time for a new model, you should expect a new display.
Experts Ftimes has put forward three plausible projections of new technologies and features that Apple will provide in the next generation iPhone displays.
1. Variable refresh rate display
The technology, demonstrated in a 12.9-inch iPad Pro, allows you to vary the speed at which the screen is refreshed, depending on what content is displayed. This means that if the user, say, scans a full-screen video at 30 frames per second, then the screen will be updated 30 times per second, which corresponds to the speed of content updates.
Apple said that this feature was included in the iPad Pro in order to increase its energy efficiency. Be aware that the battery inside the iPhone 6s are smaller than the iPhone 6, to place the Force and called the taptic Touch. If we take into account the fact that the iPhone 7/7 Plus promise to make thinner and lighter than iPhone 6s (and that means that the battery size will not increase), then the variable update frequency seems a good way to reduce energy consumption.
2. The sharp increase contrast
iPhone 7 will most likely be released in the fall of 2016. Many of Apple’s competitors in the Android ecosystem moving toward displays that use OLED technology. Due to its perfect black levels it provides an “infinite” contrast.
Experts doubt that Apple will use the displays for organic light emitting diode in 2016 (although the transition to the screens on this technology is unequivocal in 2017, according to the report), hence, Apple will need to do some pretty serious engineering work, along with its production partners to make the LCD display of the iPhone 7 better contrast.
Current displays of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, already exhibit very high contrast 1400:1 and 1300:1, respectively. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus this option 1591:1, 1451:1, respectively.
Most likely, Apple will introduce another big jump in contrast the iPhone 7 before the company will move to OLED.
3. The anti-reflective coating
iPad mini 4, Apple presented in September, got the display with the lowest coefficient of reflection in the industry. Low reflection has a significant influence on the image quality, given that the scattered light blurs and distorts the displayed picture on the screen. Experts DisplayMate called anti-reflective glass displays iPad one of the main innovations of Apple.
