The actual departure of jony Ive from the post of chief designer of Apple, which happened long before the legal registration of his dismissal, went of products of the company good. Former subordinates Ive stopped at all costs strive to reduce its thickness at the expense of functionality. As a result, the battery capacity of the iPhone began to grow, and MacBook Pro – even this year – started to get more advanced cooling system, not to mention the normal keyboard, which is in Cupertino recklessly abandoned five years ago. But that doesn’t mean that all innovations that were capable in the company ceased.
Apple intends to start buying from LG Display organic displays of the new generation, which will be even thinner than those the company uses in the production of the iPhone now. This will make more space inside smartphones and use it more efficiently. For example, thus it will be possible to increase the capacity of the battery, or placing the inside of the apparatus more compact, to install additional camera module, the appearance of which iPhone 12 predicted even before the release of iPhone 11.
To reduce the thickness of displays LG Display will allow the transition to the new production technique called LTPO (polyxena low-temperature technology). Such displays are not only cheaper to produce than traditional AMOLED, but also more energy efficient so they can reduce battery consumption by 15% from baseline. Together c increased battery and CPU A14 which is likely to be made on a 5-nanometer process technology, and means that it will have lower resource consumption over than A13, you can count on a few extra hours of battery life the new iPhone.
LTPO - patented technology of production of organic (AMOLED) displays, which is owned by Apple. It is based on low-temperature polycrystalline oxide, which helps to solve several problems at once. First, such displays are more economical because their work requires 10-15% less energy than required in conventional AMOLED-matrices. Second, LTPO displays have better predisposition to calibration, which will be able to increase color quality. And, thirdly, LTPO panel is able to support higher resolution, but because soon we will be able to see the iPhone with 4K screens.
Apple already uses technology in the Apple Watch LTPO fourth and fifth generations. Apple claims that it is thanks to her autonomy hours managed to keep at around 18 hours, though their functionality, and hence the total resource consumption over increased considerably. Besides, LTPO-display allows you to lower the update frequency to 1 Hz, to be able continuously to maintain the image on the screen, with virtually no wasting of battery power. It turns out that Apple will be able to adapt the same method of display for the iPhone, in fact, moving the feature Always-On Display to a whole new level.
