Here are your Apple Rumors for today:
Demand: A recent report claims that Apple (AAPL) is being conservative with its iPhone 7 orders, reports MacRumors. The report is based on talk from Advanced Semiconductor Engineering (ADR) (NYSE:ASX) CEO Tien Wu. He mentioned that a big client in the U.S. was being more conservative with chip orders in 2016. This client is believed to be AAPL. It’s been rumored that the company isn’t expecting as many iPhone 7 sales as it did iPhone 6s sales.
LED: A new patent backs up rumors of Apple’s interest in micro-LED displays, AppleInsider notes. The patent is called “Micro device with stabilization post” and it describes a system that could allow the company to use micro-LED displays in its devices. It even makes mention of LuxVue, which is a company specializing in micro-LED research that the tech company bought. It’s possible this patent could be connected to another that was discovered and hinted at adding micro-LED displays to the company’s smartwatch.
Camera: Apple has filed a patent for a system that would allow venues to disable iPhone cameras under certain circumstances, reports 9to5Mac. The patent describes using an infrared single to tell an iPhone when to shut off its camera and recording abilities. The patent claims this could be used to keep owners of the devices from recording concerts, movies or other lives events that cameras aren’t allowed at.
