The OLED shift will give a few benefits to the iPhone 7S as the screen allows handsets to be lighter, thinner and more flexible than the current LCD displays on the iPhone. They are also brighter and deliver deeper blacks and save battery life by turning off pixels.


Apple deal for OLED displays


The switch of the Cupertino based manufacturer to OLED displays seems inevitable as reports of a $12 billion dollar deal with Samsung and LG for a large amount of the displays looks close to completion.

The switch will also be a refresh on the iPhone range that is expected to bring new ideas to the models and to keep up with other manufacturers that have moved onto OLED displays.


Not on the iPhone 7


The expected shift over to OLED will not be made in time for the next iPhone, namely the iPhone 7, so anyone wanting that better screen will have to wait until next year.
