Report: All four of Apple’s 2020 iPhones will feature OLED displays

Apple may step things up for its iPhone releases later this year. The company is now rumored to release four new iPhone models in the fall — including one 5.4-inch mode, one 6.1-inch model, and one 6.7-inch model. And now, we have a few more details on the new devices, courtesy of Japanese blog Mac Otakara.

According to the blog post, Apple will make some major changes to the iPhone lineup in 2019. Notably, all four of the devices will feature an OLED display, finally doing away with the LCD display that can still be found in the lower-end iPhone 11.

There are other interesting details about the new devices too. According to the report, the 5.4-inch device will sit in between the iPhone SE and iPhone 8 in height, and one of the 6.1-inch models will have a height that is in between the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro.

Perhaps most interesting is the largest model, which will have a 6.7-inch display. According to the report, the device will be a considerable 10% thinner than the iPhone 11 Pro Max, and will be slightly taller too. Not only that, but the phone will have slightly larger camera sensors than the iPhone 11 Pro Max too, which could make for better photos than previous-generation models.

Not all the new iPhones will feature camera upgrades. According to the report, two of the four — presumably the most affordable two models — will feature dual-camera arrays almost identical to the current iPhone 11. That’s not necessarily a bad thing — the iPhone 11 features a relatively good camera.

The report doesn’t go into other details concerning new iPhone models. Notably, it doesn’t mention any major design changes that are expected to be a part of the new iPhones, nor does it mention anything about 5G connectivity. Among other rumors, Apple is said to be getting rid of the notch for the iPhone 12, and thanks to its new deal with Qualcomm, it may also finally bring 5G to the iPhone.

As is expected, the report goes on to say that the four iPhone models will be released in September — just like previous years. We’ll have to wait and see exactly what the new iPhone ends up looking like — but these new rumors may give us a slightly better idea.

I found a huge problem with the new ChatGPT iPhone app
ChatGPT app running on an iPhone.

Seemingly out of nowhere, OpenAI released its official ChatGPT iOS app this week. Available for both iPhones and iPads, the free app allows you to use the popular AI chatbot in a much simpler, easier way than ever before. No more messing with the mobile website or trying to fiddle with uncertain third-party apps — just download the official ChatGPT application, and you're good to go.

It's a big step forward to make ChatGPT more accessible and to get it into the hands of more people. Naturally, I was curious to test it out for myself. I've been using the ChatGPT iPhone app to ask the chatbot various questions, and while the whole thing works just like you'd expect, there's one big, glaring problem that makes me never want to touch the app again.

Let’s be clear, Apple — it’s time to make a transparent iPhone
Deep Purple iPhone 14 Pro with Beats Studio Buds+ in Transparent

Apple has released a new product that's gotten a lot of attention because of an awesome new color option. No, it’s not an iPhone, iPad, or even an Apple Watch. Heck, it’s not even the AirPods Pro 2. So, what am I talking about?

Apple acquired Beats by Dre in 2014, and this week, Beats dropped the new Beats Studio Buds+, which are pretty similar to the AirPods Pro 2, but cost less dough. And they come in one of the coolest colors I’ve seen in a long time: transparent.
