With three months having passed since the release of the iPhone 5, we’ve just about reached a period we can deem acceptable to begin talking of its successor. The rumors have gathered a great deal of this past week, with various analysts chiming into the argument with predictions of multiple color configurations and multiple screen sizes. Sticking with the theme of display alterations, the latest whispers suggest Apple will scrap the recently-implemented in-cell touch technology instead favoring a new “touch-on-display” technology created by Chimei Innolux.
According to a report over at TheChinaTimes, the decision to make the change will help to remedy prevalent interference issues which have taken the shine off the new iPhone 5’s display. Although Apple appeased many by going slightly larger with the 4-inch offering, the decision to fuse the LCD and digitizer as one entity was something of a double-edged sword. For while the in-cell touch technology allowed the iPhone 5 its incredibly thin form factor, it has also been causing interference issues for some iPhone 5 users.
