Here are your Apple Rumors for today:
OLED: Apple (AAPL) supplier LG Display Co Ltd. (ADR) (NYSE:LPL) is dedicating more money to flexible OLED production, reports AppleInsider. LG Display said that it’s putting $1.75 billion toward production lines for flexible OLED displays. This could be a sign that the company is looking to provide AAPL with displays for future iPhone devices. Rumor claims that the tech company may switch to flexible OLED displays as soon as 2017. This means that LG Display would be too late to supply a significant amount to the company, but it could be ready in time for a 2018 iPhone.
MacBook: Apple’s next MacBook may include USB-C ports, MacRumors notes. A new rumor claims that the company is working on a MacBook that could contain USB-C ports, but it doesn’t say when the devices would be released. However, it does specifically mention that the new MacBook with USB-C ports would be part of the Air line of laptops. Previous rumors have also mentioned new MacBooks with USB-C ports, but they claimed the devices would have been announced in June, which they weren’t.
iPhone: Rumor has it that Apple’s iPhone 7 will include a redesigned Home button, reports BGR. This rumor claims that the new Home button will sit flush with the front of the device and that it won’t be mechanical. Instead, it claims that AAPL is planning to expand its 3D Touch to include the Home button. This isn’t the first we’ve heard of this change, but it’s still not confirmed as a new feature. The same rumor also claims that the iPhone 7 will feature the new “Space Black” color option that has been the subject of previous rumors.
