The iPhone 6 is still at the center of speculation, this time about the technology that Apple might use in building the touchscreen for the device.
The China Times reports that Apple is collaborating with Innolux on developing a new display technology that will be used in the next-generation iPhone.
The current in-cell technology used for the touchscreen of the iPhone 5 remains the most popular and also the best on the market
In particular, the in-cell tech combines the sensors touch with the display.
However, while this allows reducing the thickness of the screen, the side effect is a reduction of its sensitivity and an incorrect interpretation of touch.
The touch-on-display technology of Innolux boasts a higher sensitivity compared to other methods as it doesn’t sacrifice the thickness or strength of the screen.
If the tests are successful, Innolux could become a key link in the supply chain of components for Apple products, pushing Sharp aside.
According to speculation, the next iPhone may be unveiled this summer.
