Here are your Apple Rumors for today:
Dark: Images of the rumored Dark Mode feature for the upcoming iOS 10 have been revealed, reports 9to5Mac. The images of Apple’s (AAPL) possible plans for Dark Mode were posted by developers that have access to the current beta of iOS 10. The company hasn’t confirmed if Dark Mode will be added in iOS 10, but several developers claimed to have found the feature in various different apps, including iTunes, Safari, Alarm and iBooks.
Contrast: Apple has been granted a patent for how to get high contrast images from a dual-layer LCD display, AppleInsider notes. The system describes showing two versions of the same image on top of each other, one in grey scale and the other in color, as a way to get high contrast on an LCD screen. This could be an improvement over single LCD screens, which have trouble with contrast due to light leakage. The patent even describes a way to get around unwanted side effects of the dual-layer LCD display, such as halos, artifacts and more, with the help of an algorithm that would handle the process.
Camera: A new rumor claims that Apple has scrapped the dual-camera system for the iPhone 7 Plus, reports BGR. This rumor comes from an unnamed Foxconn Technology Co Ltd employee that claims the technology had to be removed from the iPhone 7 Plus because it was still too “immature.” This is quite different from various other rumors and leaks that have lead people to believe the new 5.5-inch iPhone will have two rear-facing cameras.
