To make its devices more gaming-centric, Apple may add quick and ultra-smooth displays to its 2020 line-up of iPhones, for which the company is currently in discussion with Samsung and LG.

Both LG and Samsung are known to be the two biggest suppliers of smartphone AMOLED displays in the world.

“Apple is considering a switchable 60Hz/120Hz refresh rate screen on the iPhone in 2020, and is discussing with Samsung and LG,” a reliable Apple tipster, Ice Universe, tweeted on Sunday.

By “switchable 60Hz/120Hz”, it is presumed that next year’s iPhones would be able to switch to a 60Hz refresh rate whenever static images are displayed in order to conserve battery, Tech Radar reported.

If true, this would not be the first time that the iPhone-maker would be releasing mobile devices with 120Hz displays.

Lacking the OLED screen technology and supporting the LED Retina ProMotion displays, all of Apple’s 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPads released since 2017 boasted ultra-fast refresh rates.

The OLED screens come with several benefits such as individually-lit pixels, perfect blacks and low power consumption.

More details about the screen technology Apple plans on using for its 2020 iPhones remain undisclosed as of now.

Next year, the company is expected to launch four devices with 5G compatibility and advanced 3D sensing camera technology.

The new line-up would help the company sell 195 million units in 2020, up from an estimated 180 million in 2019, the media has reported.

Currently, Apple is preparing for the launch of this year’s iPhone 11 handsets in September. (IANS)

Tech Giant Apple Solves Location Privacy Issue with iPhone 11 in 2nd iOS 13.3.1 Beta

The second beta version of Apple’s iOS 13.3.1, released earlier this month, now includes a toggle for disabling the Ultra Wideband chip in the device. This comes after privacy issue reports around the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro that they still tracked location data even when users had turned off location services.

When that led to more questions and debates, the iPhone maker stated the behaviour was due to the fact the UWB chip in the new iPhones isn’t approved broadly around the world, so the iPhone 11 uses location services to check if UWB can be used or not, 9to5Mac reported on Friday.

“We do not see any actual security implications,” an Apple engineer was earlier quoted as saying by KrebsOnSecurity.

“It is expected behaviour that the Location Services icon appears in the status bar when Location Services is enabled. The icon appears for system services that do not have a switch in Settings.”
