Apple's developing its own OLEDs for future iPhones

Tech Industry
[MUSIC] What's up, Brown Tong here, back from Hawaii and then Comic Con. Whoo, that was really a hard vacation. Welcome to the Apple Byte for everything good and bad inside the world of Apple. We're still on a holding pattern for the next big product drop, ahem. iPhone, but there's always something happening. Like when people are bored, they decide to make nice looking renders of what they hope the iPhone's next top bar will look like, instead of the black notch that juts out around the cameras and sensors that we've seen before. Now this is what I want, it would look so much slicker. And yeah, you know, Galaxy S8-ish, but so what? We'll wait and see. Now the iPhone 8's OLED display will be manufactured and supplied exclusively by Samsung. Reports say Apple has signed a deal for a supply of up to 160 million curved OLED panels over the next two years. But according to ET News, Apple is developing its own OLED tech, setting up a research and development line in Taiwan just for OLED screens. With the goal of moving away from Samsung as its sole supplier. Now the report says Apple has purchased chemical vapor deposition machines which are used to make outlet panels, but look like they can make you a nice brew as well but, they won't. Now, Apple could licence the machines to manufacturing partners like Fox. Conner Pegatron to open up the OLED supply chain, building more screens for devices like the iPhone, Apple Watch, or the second gen HomePod with a screen. See, I just completely made up that HomePod part to see if you were still paying attention. That's not happening, Or is it? Now if you're still trying to narrow down when we'll see the next Apple Watch 3, Qanta is one of its manufacturers and the revenue projections would line up with the new Apple Watch coming in the third quarter of this year around September. Rumors have pointed to everything from better battery life to a cellular connection and improved health biometric sensors, with the same form factor for the next Apple Watch. But, come on, give me that **** Tracy style FaceTime on that bad boy, that's what I want. All right, the third public betas for iOS 11, Watch OS, TV OS and, yes- Mac OS. [MUSIC] Aye. Yeah. Ish. They're out now with a few minor tweaks and improvements based on the fourth developers release. I'm okay to throw it on my iPad but I'm not an eager beaver like some of you who just wanna put it on everything. It's still a beta with bugs and it's not worth it to drop it on my primary phone. Okay, Adobe is finally killing flash. It' him. It's him. No, not that one. This one. Yeah, that doesn't look nearly as cool but for reals this time. After they announce that they will end life to plug in by the end of 2020. Guess what? Some of you already just wrote in the comments flash has already been dead in all caps with an exclamation mark or three. Now Adobe says it's working with companies to prepare for the upcoming death of flash. You know the one Steve Jobs famously wrote about in his open letter back in April of 2010 because of it's poor reliability and security. Modern options like open source html 5, css and JavaScript Poor battery life and its lack of support for touch. See, Jobs was right on the money about Flash just seven plus years ago. A new report from Reuters says iRobot, the creators of the Roomba Vacuum, is looking to expand in the smarthome world and will start collecting mapping from people's homes. Now iRobot CEO then wants to sell it to companies like Apple to improve their Smart Home information. That's not creepy at all. The hope is that the data would help accessory makers have a better idea about how homes are laid out. Customers would have to give their permission to use the data, but Apple, Amazon and Alphabet, formerly Google, are all fans of the technology. And if you missed it, Apple and The Rock, Dwayne Johnson, who is a four minute movie featuring A Day and The Life with The Rock and Siri where, he's challenged to do pretty much everything. Hey Siri, read me my last email. At 9:30 AM, [UNKNOWN] sent you an email about, Mr. Nucky Murray can discuss your fashion line. Everything in the life is made up of four elements. Wind, fire, water, Rock. Hey Siri, how many ounces in a centiliter? One centiliter is 0.34 fluid ounces. [FOREIGN] Mesi, give me some. [MUSIC] So, what did you guys all think of that? It doesn't matter what you think. That's gonna do for this week's show, you can email us at theapplebyte@cnet.com or tweet me @BRIANTONG, thank you for watching, we'll catch up next time for the bite of the apple. [MUSIC]
