Apple talking to Sharp about using IGZO displays on next Apple iPhone and Apple iPad
Is there an Apple iPhone 5S coming?

Is there an Apple iPhone 5S coming?

Nearly a year ago to the day, rumors starting spreading that the third-generation Apple iPad would use IGZO display technology from Sharp. Less than two weeks later, the kibosh was put on that idea after word came out that Sharp could not pass Apple's strict approval process for mass production. Now, the rumors about Apple using Sharo's IGZO display are back.

The screens are made of indium, gallium and zinc oxide and are thinner. It seems that Sharp has improved its yield as the company recently introduced its own mobile products with IGZO displays in Japan. But Apple being Apple, it is not going to take things for granted. The Cupertino based firm has spoken with its display partner AU Optronics to see if its L5C line could be used to make the IGZO displays. Additionally, Taiwan based Innolux recently was granted a license to make IGZO panels which could put it in the running as well.

There is speculation that Apple will turn to a shorter product cycle meaning we could see a June launch for the rumored Apple iPhone 5S, and the fifth-generation Apple iPad. There is also talk of a new Apple iPad mini with improved processor and a screen with a higher pixel density.

Doesn't care. Learn to write English if you 'care' enough to write a post yourself.

It doesn't seem like a bad product, but combined with the article about bending and a thinner display, doesn't sound like a good idea. I never had my iPod Touch bend, but then again, I hadly ever use it =P

It would be good timing right about now to release an iPhone Nano or mini right about now, that they released a larger iPhone.

The size of their current generation of iPod Nano. Of course have it be a lower spec iPhone. It would give customers a cheaper alternative and a smaller alternative. To have a wider audience. There isn't any true small phones right now.

Apple needs to work on a new form of iOS but instead they gonna make a cheaper build phone to increase there profits and also most likely figure out ways to sue sharp no for patent infringements like they have done with Samsung and HTC
