Is Apple already preparing to ditch the most recognisable iPhone X feature?

09 March 2018

The report corroborates previous rumors that Apple will introduce three new iPhones: a more affordable 6-inch LCD-based iPhone, a 5.8-inch successor to the iPhone X with upgraded internal components, and a huge version of that iPhone, with a 6.5-inch display.

It was mocked heavily, unsightly and interrupted an otherwise flawless design. Apple seemed to think the little screen nuisance would become a signature part of their phones, much like the bitten apple in their logo.

But according to Korean website ET News, Apple wants to remove the notch completely by the end of 2019. Apple needed somewhere to hide the front-facing camera, infra-red camera, dot projector, flood illuminator, speaker, microphone, proximity and ambient light sensors. By removing the notch, the 2019 iPhone will be able to deliver ultimate full screen experience. It is that same logic that keeps Apple users from buying an Android phone - even if it is the superior device.

Android P would also have a standard dialog box user interface for when apps want to verify a user's identity with a fingerprint. The new OS would also have built-in support for more video and image codecs, including HDR VP9 Profile 2 and HEIF (heic).

The report doesn't share any details as to how Apple plans to include all of this tech without a cutout at the top of the display.

The survey result confirmed an important point about the Apple iPhone X. Going by the strong comments made by the survey participants, it looks like they really hate the pricing of the device.

The future iPhone 9 is thought by Apple as an iPhone model to generate sales separately from the iPhone XS and iPhone X Plus, which will also be released this year. Google's opinion on this is unknown, but it knows Android devices with notches are on their way and appreciates the need to accommodate such hardware designs with its next OS version.

International Women's Day being observed
Women in the region are closing the gap with men, and catching up their counterparts in advanced economies at an impressive rate. In 1917, women in Russian Federation chose to protest and strike for "Bread and Peace" on the last Sunday in February.

The company shrunk their sizes and accommodated them in the smallest area possible at the time. These notches are inferior, though.

"Of course, when a chemically aged battery is replaced with a new one, iPhone performance returns to normal when operated in standard conditions". The leaked images reportedly came from a closed-door meeting LG held at this month's Mobile World Congress, and the phone features a notch similar to the one shown in Geskin's renders. Or by, er, drilling holes into it. Even Huawei's upcoming flagship P20 is rumored to have a top notch.

False information travels 6 times faster than the truth on Twitter
Twitter provided the data for the study and funded the work. "People who share novel information are seen as being in the know". The scientists have called for more research into the behavioural explanations for spreading misinformation and fake news .
