No screen... you need an external monitor for it
I get it, but definitely a "first world problem."
I actually start thinking about getting this phone and that just because of the many rumors.
Next month... color swatches for the case coloring!
If it was slightly concave, think all the fewer scratches it would get?
I suspect it's because the slight curvature is tightly related to how they will make it go edge to edge.
When it becomes available we will have the age old question, does yours bend to the left or right?
Yeah, but realistically Apple were never going to do extreme curves like the S7 Edge. They wouldn't do that until they extend the display round the body of the device. Flat wouldn't allow for the whole front panel to be glass, so the 2.5D curve to the display would be the best.
"The benefit of the edge-to-edge design is that it will essentially allow for an iPhone 7Plus sized display to fit on a device that is iPhone 7 sized, which is beneficial for all sorts of reasons, such as one-handed usage and pocketability."
There is not much one-handed usage and pocketability for iPhone 7 sized phones, hence the reachability feature. However, if they do manage to fit a 4.7" screen into the size of iPhone SE, then we are talking!
I actually like the simple look of the iPhone, so i'm curious as to what this will look like.
The problem is not so much this site; it's Apple. They don't do really anything any more. Hence no rumours. As for the forum, well people have probably figured out there is more to life.
Isn't it mostly flat with slightly curved edges already?
All the analysts are confused.
I guarantee you it's not the display that's curved, that will remain flat.
Instead it's the corners that are curved, in other words it will have rounded corners...
So nothing different then the current phone. Not surprised. :-(
I looked at review of LG G6 on you tube. There were black bars on sides while watching videos..I think that is because of 2:1 aspect ratio of display (18:9) used to project 16:9 content, so 1 on each side is black..I hope Apple figures out something better..
The new design will lead to more cracked screens as dropped phones will have less exposed frame to absorb impact. More $ to be made through AppleCare.
Seeing as the frame has always been a rigid mount, I'm not sure how you can claim one of it's purposes has ever been to "absorb impact". You're thinking of a case.
I think that is because Apple has become more superficial in their "innovations".
Heck, they can't even keep a "Pro" desktop updated. When they try to update something it always feels like they've left so much on the table just to have that superficial feature that looks like "innovation". (usually "thinner" is the winner)
Yeah now if it comes out with a curved display MacRumors can say 'As predicted [insert link to tuesday post]*' Apple has announce and iPhone with a Curved display.
*Change inserted news link based on announcement = Regardless we were right.
I bet my house, wife, kids, car that the next iPhone will be a touch screen, and color for sure it is not a black/white
I am dreading a curved display. Tempered screen protectors will not work due to the edges. And i dont trust apples screen tech unless they go 100% sapphire (which is probably out of the question).

I don't give a rat's ass about what it looks like. I want more water-proofness, smarter siri and that damn audio jack back.
