Apple will ditch Lightning for USB-C and will get OLED in iPhone 8

Written by

This year is the 10th Anniversary of iPhone. Apple will be releasing a special edition iPhone this year with great new features. There will be OLED display in the next iPhone which may get named iPhone X or iPhone 8. According to WSJ (World Street Journal) news source- it’s been confirmed that the 10th iteration of the device will pack a curved OLED screen. Unfortunately, this is likely to further split Apple’s formerly seamless lineup, since the regular iPhone refreshes are believed to pack LCD displays.

And if that happens then it will be very likely that Apple’s current iPhone 7 & 7 Plus will get refreshed to OLED screens also or LCD displays. It’s rumored, not confirmed yet.

Tim Cook will announce 3 devices toward the end of this year. First, there’ll be two devices that match the company’s usual refresh cycle: a mythical iPhone 7S and 7S Plus with LCD screens. Then, as a treat, the company will pull out the iPhone 10th Anniversary Edition, that comes with the OLED display and with a price tag of $1,000.

Another News is that Apple will ditch both its traditional home button and the Lightning connector and incorporate USB-C. Also, Our another popular apple insider source Ming-Chi Kuo is saying for the last few weeks that the next iPhone may be getting a “function area” or secondary touchscreen below the primary. Apple has also got the patent for fingerprint sensor inside the display.

Apple will be ditching the old lightning port, but we think that, It will stay there but the it will be USB type C in the charger and it the cable will also work with the new MacBook pro latest models. So this is how they gets connected back in their eco system.

Apple has already released iOS 10.3 beta 4 and the iOS 11 beta will be out after the Apple WWDC’2017 on June 5th 2017.
