We have been hearing various rumors regarding iPhone 5S. Recently Digitimes has reported that Apple will use IGZO display in iPhone 5S. Now App Advice is claiming that Apple may use a new display technology in iPhone 5S. According to App Advice, China Times has confirmed that Apple will use Innolux’s touch-on-display technology in iPhone 5S to make it tougher and thinner than the current generation iPhone. iPhone 5S will be more touch sensitive due to the use of touch-on-display technology.
China Times has also confirmed that Apple is currently testing this new display technology for iPhone 5S. Apple has used in-cell touchscreen technology in iPhone 5 to make it thinner than iPhone 4S, but many users have faced issue with iPhone 5 display. This may be the reason behind the use of new display technology in iPhone 5S. According to China Times, Innolux is the Taiwanese LCD manufacturer. Recently Topeka Capital Markets analyst Brian White had predicted that iPhone 5S will be available in 5 colors such as pink, black & slate, blue, white & silver and yellow. He had also predicted that Apple will launch the next generation iPhone will come in several screen sizes. Recently Jefferies analyst Peter Misek had predicted that iPhone 5S will feature NFC, IGZO screen, new super HD camera, improved battery, 128GB storage and it will be launched in June. Jefferies analyst Peter Misek has a good track record of predicting Apple related news, so it is expected that iPhone 5S will be launched in June.
Still no word from Apple regarding use of touch-on-display technology in iPhone 5S. If the prediction comes true, iPhone 5S will be tougher and thinner than the current generation iPhone. The launch date of iPhone 5S is not officially announced yet. Apple is expected to launch iPhone 5S in June this year.
