iPhone 7s Specification Leaks: Apple Prepares OLED Displays

There is some information about iPhone 7s display. Apple is rumored to release the colorful iPhone 6c in the spring and the new iPhone 7s in the fall 2016. These are just rumors but it’s interesting to get some iPhone 7s specification and specs before this smartphone becomes real in less than a year from now.

Some rumors claim that Apple could create OLED displays for its future handsets sometime in 2018. Now some experts think that the company is already working with several manufacturers trying to bring such iPhone 7s screen earlier.

iPhone OLED Display Apple iPhone 7s

It’s not clear when exactly the ‘fruit’ giant could bring OLED screens. Would it be able to get them in time for iPhone 7s release date or not? There are suggestions that Apple would do everything to push new display delivery to 2016 or 2017.

Some reports mention that Apple is working with Japanese and Korean companies and wants to adopt the iPhone OLED screens as soon as possible. If, for example, Apple launches iPhone 6c next September or calls the next generation handset the iPhone 7, it could present iPhone 7s in 2017 and add OLED panels to this lineup.

Current iPhone 6s, 6s Plus and previous models are using LCD panels. If it becomes impossible for manufacturers to deliver enough screens in 2016 or 2017 – Apple could postpone OLED screen release to iPhone 8 in 2018. It wouldn’t want to affect sales by lacking the new display that’s why analysts share such predictions.

Nothing is confirmed. Customers won’t get official information about the future iPhones until Apple introduces the new device to mass media.


You Can Bring iPad Pro 3D Touch Feature Alive

Users found a way how to bring 3D Touch on iPad Pro [here is what to do if your new iPad Pro stops responding]. You’ll have to use the Apple Pencil accessory. Would you have to jailbreak? The original 3D Touch is introduced on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus this fall. Users find it useful but unfortunately the feature is not available on other gadgets unless you jailbreak them and find tweaks that offer similar experience.

iPad Pro 3D Touch possibility is found by Hamza Sood. This well-known developer answers the question ‘how to add 3d touch to iPad without jailbreak.’ If you are using iPad Pro which is the most recent tablet device released in November – there is no need to use Apple Pencil and make 3D Touch alive unless you jailbreak.

iPad Pro 3D Touch with Apple Pencil Jailbreak

Sood performed iOS 9 jailbreak and managed to somehow link the software with Apple Pencil pressure. This way he was able to manipulate the pressure and get similar responses to 3D Touch. If you are jailbroken but have no Pencil – you won’t be able to awoke the 3D Touch option. It only comes alive thanks to the sensors included into Apple Pencil that can distinguish between sketching, painting, writing etc.

The trick is nice but it’s not available to public. Could Apple offer 3D Touch to the next iPad Pro? Would it upgrade other gadgets to offer the same thing iPhone 6s offers? Millions of customers would be happy to buy a new device if it comes with some great and popular options. Still most features users really enjoy getting are possible to install through jailbreaking and it is impossible to jailbreak iOS 9.1. Only earlier firmware versions can be jailbroken at the moment.
