Will Next Year’s iPhone Have A Curved Screen?
The two new iPhones that launched in September this year didn’t receive much of a makeover from last year’s model, except for the addition for fingerprint-scanning technology and a few updated specs (well, plus the 5C comes in bright new plastic colours—but the hardware design is the same as last year). However, next year’s iPhone may shape up to look very different from the familiar dimensions of the iPhone 5, iPhone 5S and iPhone C.
Apple is rumoured to be developing a curved iPhone display that consumers may be able to get their hands on in 2014. Bloomberg spoke to a source that said the curved displays would be available in the “second half of next year”, likely in the third quarter. Rumours about the iPhone 6 also suggest that the device would have improved touchscreen sensors that can better differentiate between different levels of pressure.
Increased touchscreen sensitivity could have a number of applicable uses for both the iPhone and the iPad. Heightened screen sensitivity could mean improved apps for drawing and animation as well as taking notes by hand or retouching images.
Bloomberg also reported that the anticipated 2014 iPhones would be available in two sizes: 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch. If this is true, then Apple will be releasing two iPhone models at once for the second time in the company’s history.
However, it does seem odd that Apple would release two larger devices at once, so it’s plausible that they might continue the iPhone 5c line as a cheaper alternative to the two new devices, maintaining a total of three iPhone product lines.
In addition to Bloomberg, several other reliable sources claim that Apple will release a 4.7-inch iPhone 6 for release in the latter half of 2014.
