    You say that but most people I know who aren’t into tech don’t even understand the difference between lcd and OLED. I know a lot of people who bought iPhone 8 when the x was launched and xr instead of one of the Xs.

    That's why Apple won awards for there lcd displays. But I suppose oled will be considered garbage when micro-led comes of age.

    Do you have a citation for that "opinion" on where one is supposed to pick up an iphone and just start using it? Or is that a meme?
    --- Post Merged, Mar 10, 2019 ---
    Interestingly the xr has lcd and some people are claiming they are buying the xr due to lcd.

    Android had it before apple, on the iPhone, too. It’s a google photos feature ripped by apple

    How can an android phone be inferior, that’s just not fact based! Android is far superior in almost any category. Maybe You like the iPhone more, but facts are against your personal preference.

    That’s weird as I’ve been able to store them on my XR.

    One android vendor, if I recall, had a Live Photo’s equivalent prior to 2015. Everyone else after that ripped it off. I can’t find a citation but if you have a link to the history of Live Photo’s on android, it would clarify this “android had it first”.

    yeah but easier said than done, all customers want new features, and at some point by always adding new functionality, the use gets a little bit more complicated
    you could share your insights on how to improve the usability by maintaining all the features of iOS (I know that some points can be improved, but all in all iOS is pretty solid for me)

    They never won the Best Display on the Planet award. By the time MicroLED arrives, Samsung will have marched full steam ahead with their foldable displays.

    But this is because they are cheap and so appeal to large bases in India and China where $1000+ don’t sell well. This has nothing to do with market share because they are better phones. How does an individual Huawei/Xiamoi/Samsung or any other Android phone sell against iPhone? Even iPhone XS/Max since they are the same phone but different size? I would be willing to bet the Xiamoi and Huawei phones selling best in India and China are not the $1000+ phones.

    Yeah, sounds like it’s so much better than running Linux on an actual laptop, where you don’t have to hunt high & low hoping to find Apps compiled for ARM and don’t have to worry about the performance of running Linux on a gimped mobile processor with limited RAM.
    --- Post Merged, Mar 10, 2019 ---
    They never did for an LCD, but Apple has won best display for the X and XS. It’s a given though, considering the architecture of Android vs iOS. The same screen tech will always win on an iPhone.

    The caveat being, by the time micro LED does launch is, you have no idea and neither does anyone else, if foldable displays will be the future or not. It very well could be a niche technology that’s not fully adopted that will be phased out like the 3-D curved TV’s. It’s all innovative, but with the price and the lack of appeal for some, they’re generally not interested in certain technology if it doesn’t suit their financial needs. (Especially with a $2000 folding phone.)

    Micro-led is going to bust open the entire foldable market as oled is not needed. But it must have hurt Samsung to have an lcd best their oled panels. No?

    Do you have a source where Apple or someone from has said that a product would require no manuals?

    There is also a difference between requiring a manual to understand the basic operating of a device and providing a manual for complex or unusual functions.

    Also Apple has provided both iOS and iPhone user manuals at least since iOS 3. Not only that, they also provide user manuals for they keyboards, mouses and trackpads, so I am very sceptical they have said that no user manual should ever be produced for a product.

    If you mean by that "me and my technically inclined group of friends agree LCD is garbage tier".

    Wow! At what level do you run? '...learn...' You mean 'learn'?
    I love the clips, they combine a few things that you normally find out for yourself.
    And they focus on a few things that I also enjoy every day.

    If you ask Siri to open settings, while you’re inside an app- it’ll open already drilled down to that setting.

    MicroLED is vaporware . OLED is a functional product. So are foldable displays. BTW Apple’s LCD never beat Samsung OLED.

    Micro-led being vaporware is not the reality of it. With Apple pumping millions into display tech you never know when commercially viable display panels. Before we each go asking for some citation on our respective remarks for Apple lcd beating Samsung oled...

    I wonder to who they’re targeted at because most features they are showing aren’t unique to iPhones and when you already have an iPhone I found those tips more convenient. So what’s the goal of these ads?

    Umm.... everyone seems to be forgetting the huge modular MicroLED wall screen that Samsung demoed. Months ago.
