Despite its release being months away (if history repeats itself, that is), the iPhone 7 already has plenty of tongues wagging. We鈥檝e heard rumors that Apple鈥檚 flagship handset is going to be waterproof , and that the Cupertino-based co. has some crazy waterproofing patents in place to accomplish that feat. Word on the street also says the iPhone 7 might come with Li-Fi , light-based Internet that is 100 times faster than WiFi. One persistent rumor that isn鈥檛 going away, however, is that the new generation of iPhone will come with a borderless and bezel-less foldable OLED screen and, at this point, new reports are basically categorizing these supposed murmurings as certified leaks.


According to Bloomberg , early signs that Apple might be up to something regarding their screens piqued everyone鈥檚 interest when Applied Materials, Inc., an equipment, software and service supplier for Apple, placed an order for screen-making equipment that is four times their norm. Yes鈥檓, Apple is up to something BIG, and it鈥檚 no surprise that the Silicon Valley giant would pull out all the stops for the 10th anniversary of the iPhone.


OLED, or organic light-emitting diode, screens are nothing new when it comes to smartphones. In fact, Samsung鈥檚 Galaxy S7 Edge already sports the gorg, wraparound screen. There鈥檚 also lots of pluses when it comes to OLED vs. the iPhone 6S鈥 LED screens. 鈥淥LED screens are thinner because they don鈥檛 require a back light. They also represent colors more vividly and are more energy efficient, which may help extend the iPhone鈥檚 battery life,鈥 Bloomberg writes.

More battery life AND a sharper display than we鈥檝e ever seen before? Take my money, Apple. Just take it.
