Next Gen iPhone To Have In-Cell Touch Panels

Next Generation iPhone Adopt In-Touch Panels - Digitimes

According to Digitimes, the next Apple iPhone would use Touch Panels manufactured by Sharp and Toshiba.

An improvement in yield rates of the in-cell touch panels at Sharp and TMD has persuaded Apple to choose to cooperate with Japan-based panel makers. Sharp will produce the in-cell panels at its 5.5G lines, while TMD will utilize its 6G lines for production, indicated the sources, adding that the two makers will begin to ramp up in-cell panel production in the second quarter of 2012. - Digitimes

We might see a different display in the new iPhone 5 which should keep up the brand standard with the Hi-Res Retina Display and crispier text, not to mention the stunning gaming experience.

According to CNET - In-cell multitouch technology integrates touch into the thin-film transistor (TFT) LCD manufacturing process, obviating the need for additional sensors and glass. This reduces the weight of the device, among other benefits.

To wrap up the topic, Apple is testing new display for the upcoming iPhone 5 which could likely release after the WWDC event, somewhere in June just like the release of its predecessor iPhone 4S.

Retina Display Macs And iMacs Coming Soon

Speculations Based Upon The New iPad's Retina Display - What Can We Expect In Future Macs

apple mac book pro retina featuring retina display

Earlier this month Apple released The New iPad which features the stunning Hi-Res Retina Display. That makes it the second most successful product that Apple has ever launched. What attracts the buyers is the HiDPI that makes the text on these devices crispier and images brighter and beautiful. With the iPad featuring retina display it wouldnt come as suprise if the future apple products like the mac book pro and mac book air will feature a hi-res Retina Display.

apple mac to get retina displayLets have a look at Apples HiDPI assuming that there the Retina Display Macs should not only have better battery but also better GPU power. The image with HiDPI is clear and the text appears crispier which makes the entire screen look absolutely stunning.
Lets have a look at the current Display Matrix of Apple Products:

If Apple were to introduce the Hi-Res Retina Display, the key places to focus at would be :

  • Display : Obviously a Hi-Res and better quality display close to Retina - Display
  • Battery : If apple were to add retina display then the batter need a lot of improvement.
  • Weight : The weight of the new iPad was more because of the retina display, apple needs to work on maintaining the same weight as mac books are already sturdy and quite heavy. 
  • Heat : The New iPad is having heat issues. Users have complained that while using the new iPad gets hot more often than compared to the iPad 2. Apple should make sure that the mac books shouldnt heat much as that could cause in overheating of the laptops.
  • Ram :Retina Display not only requires better ram but a faster GPU to render images and texture for retina display. So, if Apple were to introduce Mac Book Pro or Mac Book Air with Retina Display then they need to make sure that the Ram and the GPU is powerful enough to make the Retina Display as magical as it is supposed to be.

The New iPad's A5X VS Asus Transformer Prime's Tegra 3

Comparing The New iPad's A5X VS Asus Transformer Prime's Tegra 3 Processors

The new iPad 3 vs asus transformer prime iPad 3 vs transformer prime
Clash Of The Processors

Earlier this month Apple CEO Tim Cook released the New iPad with a powerful processor and Hi-Res Retina Display. The new iPad is on sale from 16th March and while some power users have managed to tear down to check the hardware, others have compared the performance of the new iPad with its competitors. In this post we'll be comparing Apple's New iPad with Asus's Transformer Prime.

Asus transformer prime vs apple new ipad 3 the new ipad 3 performance comparison with transformer prime

GLBenchmarrk 2.1 

In GLBenchmark 2.1, is a benchmark that tests the quality of gaming, navigation and user interface. The New iPad scored higher. On the program’s Egypt Standard test, which shows a 3D animation of ancient Egypt, the new iPad and its A5X chip processed 6718 frames at a rate of 60 frames-per-second to the Transformer Primer’s 5,939 frames at 53 fps.

Geometric test

The new iPad was way ahead of transformer prime when it came to Geometric test (vertex weighted), which measures low-level shader performance. It processed 7,530,524 frames at a rate of 57 fps while the Tegra 3-based Transformer Prime processed just 3,523,926 at a rate of 27 fps.

Fill Test

During the Fill test, which measures texturing speed, the iPad processed 1.98 billion textels per second to the Prime's 404.61 million. That shows the power of Retina Display.

Apple vs Asus

Gaming Performance

Gaming performance cannot be compared because there is no such benchmark that checks and rates the quality of texture in gaming like FRAPS does for Windows. However a video showcasing both the tablets playing the same game side by side is quite clear but it is very hard to say which device is better when it comes to texture quality.

There are about 30 apps listed in the apps for your iPad section, some of which include “Tweetbot,” “Skitch,” “Infinity Blade II,” and “Sky Gamblers.” We are certain that most of the developers have already begun improving their existing apps to support the retina display of the new iPad.

Apple's The New iPad Unboxing Video

Apple's The New iPad Unboxing Video

Not less than a week when Tim Cook had launched The New iPad and here we have the first video of unboxing the shiny bright apple device. Apple has already ran out of pre-orders and the earliest shipping is expected to happen by 16th March. In the video it can be observed that the picture quality is very high with the new Retina Display being used by apple for the first time in the iPad. Retina display was previously used in iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S. According to Apple, the retina display resolution of the new iPad is 2048x1536 high with 3.1 million pixels. This high resolution video display is apparently better than most of the HDTV's available in the market.

Lets have a look at the video:


Retina Display cannot be observed on the video unless you zoom too much to reveal the pixels. However, the brightness and if observed the display even when the iPad was tilted, the display was pretty clear.
Games and application performance is observed to be very high in the new iPad suggesting increased Ram.

Can't wait to get your hands on the new iPad, can you ?
