iWatch to get flexible display and wireless charging, iPhone 6 would be well operated by single hand
Apple is all set to unveil its next generation iPhone 6 along with its very first wearable device. Reports also pushes iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 launch to the same September 9 date. Now comes NYT with a new report covering iPhone 6 and iWatch. Actually, more of iWatch.
According to them, Apple’s upcoming iWatch would add wireless charging to get replenish quickly. They once had a plan to add solar charging to it but that never got successfully done. Moreover, this new wearable or iWatch will get flexible display that would be protected by sapphire glass, making it somewhat scratch less.
NYT also got something for iPhone 6. First of all, they confirmed that next generation iPhone will indeed roll out in 2 different size variant i.e. 4.7″ and 5.5″. Both being somewhat big, Apple will add single-handed operation feature in these devices through which user can operate every part of the device just by using one hand.
It has a flexible display panel that is protected by a cover composed of sapphire, a type of tougher glass, they said. The device’s circuit board, which includes its sensors and chips, was described as tiny, about the size of a postage stamp.
For replenishing the battery, the smartwatch will rely on a wireless charging method. Apple had at one point tested solar charging for the watch, but that experiment failed.
To deal with concerns that a bigger phone will make typing with one hand difficult (the current iPhone has a 4-inch screen), some changes to the design of the iPhones’ software interface will allow people to type or use apps with just one hand — there will be a one-handed mode that can be switched on and off, two employees said.
