According to Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 8 will outsell the Galaxy S8 this year; a feat that has not been achieved in the last few years by the Cupertino giant. According to the KGI Securities analyst, the S8 and the S8+ just don't have enough key selling points going their way this year. The iPhone 8 with its OLED display will presumably take advantage of this situation and outsell the Samsung flagship. He further predicts the Galaxy S8 shipments to hover close to 40 - 45 million, which is less than the 52 million S7 and S7 Edge smartphones sold by Samsung in 2016 (estimated figures).

It is true that the iPhone 8 is garnering a lot of attention from everyone, especially due to the fact that this is going to be the iconic smartphone's 10th anniversary. Add to that the collection of rumors which range from borderless OLED displays to wireless charging and we could indeed have a very special iphone on our proverbial hands! That being said, do you really think that it can outsell the S8 globally? In spite of the bad stint with the Note 7, the entire world is waiting to see Samsung release their first flagship smartphone in over a year. What do you think? Let us know in the comments.

No we are not talking about the iPhone 8 which we know is the most talked about iPhone at the moment. We are indeed talking about the iPhones which we will see in 2018. Based on a recent patent application by Apple, the iPhone which is still over one and a half year away from us, could sport a retractable design.

As you can see from the design sketches, the concept looks quite similar to what a scroll looks like. There are cylindrical housings on both sides and a thin sheet in between that can be retracted back until the two cylindrical units meet. The sheet in the middle is of course the flexible OLED panel of the device, with everything else being housed within the two cylindrical units. All of this is only hypothesis of course, but that's exactly what it looks like.

We have to admit, the concept looks downright revolutionary from every angle. Granted that chances of seeing something so radical and futuristic by next year are pretty slim, it is still a fact that Apple has indeed applied for a patent and these sketches seem to show us in which direction Apple is headed.

Handy iOS Tips and Shortcuts

How to restart iPhone

You may need to know how to reboot iPhone if it becomes unresponsive to general inputs or in other words, hangs on you. Up to iPhone 6s and below, press the power button and the Home button at the same time and hold onto both of them for 10 seconds or as long as it takes for the Apple logo to appear. If you are wondering how to reboot iPad, the same method works for all versions of the iPad released till date. In case of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, press and hold the power button and the volume down button for ten seconds or until the Apple logo appears on screen.

How to Boot in safe Mode

You need not worry about this one unless you have a jailbroken iPhone or iPad. Even then, you device will automatically boot into safe mode whenever any of the jailbreak extensions interfere with the base iOS. If a simple restart doesn't solve the problem, just use ReiBoot's Fix All iOS Stuck option to fix it.

If you are an Apple fan, we have good news for you today. According to a report by The Investor (South Korea), Samsung has just struck a deal with Apple to supply the Cupertino giant with an additional 60 million OLED panels for the iPhone 8. We say "additional" because this comes on top of the 100 million OLED panels that Apple had ordered from Samsung in a contract last year. It seems that Apple is depending on their arch-rival to provide them with the major bulk of OLED panels for the next iPhones.

This is good news because of two reasons; the first and the foremost being the fact that Apple will indeed be finally switching over to OLED from LCD. Not only does an OLED display provide a better viewing experience, but they also are significantly more power-efficient than LCD panels. Secondly, the 160 million OLED panels theoretically means that the previous rumor which stated that only the most expensive Apple iPhone 8 will feature the new displays is most likely false. It could very well mean that all iPhone 8 variants will feature the OLED panels this year, which is definitely happy news for Apple fans around the world.

A new rumor has it that Apple will be introducing bendable plastic LCD panels from JDI with the iPhone 8. However, that seems quite improbable unfortunately for Apple fans. Although the flexible LCD panels, also known as Full Active Flex screen could have given the dual curved Edge displays from Samsung a bit of competition, JDI has no plans of entering into mass production of the panels before 2018. While this does mean that future iPhones could very well be sporting the bendable displays that the rumors have been predicting, it is very unlikely that the iPhone 8 will be sporting it in 2017.

In a report by Reuters, it was stated that Liberum analyst Janardan Menon is implying that STMicroelectronics has struck a major deal with Apple. The deal was probably even mentioned in the company's financials for 2016, albeit anonymously. If it is true, then STMicroelectronics will probably be supplying Apple with a new type of proximity sensors for the iPhone 8. What these new sensors will be used for is beyond us at this moment, but it could have something to do with AR or VR integration. We will find out more soon enough.
