Apple can test e-ink panels for paired iPhone (or other device)

Ah, more rumors about the iPhone’s – or whatever the name of this okesive and enigmatic smartphone ends up becoming. According to Ming-Chi Kuo of 9to5Mac, Apple could possibly e-ink for external display of the composite object. Apple plans to launch an external e-ink on the iPhone.

Ming-Chi Kuo is a famous name when it comes to Apple (although it has been mistaken for some time) and this time, the analyst is talking about the iPhone’s (this name is, as you might say, unofficial). If I were Apple, I would probably call it iFold or something, but still, we have been hearing rumors about it without any real guarantee that we will see what kind of device and when. With that being said, let’s see what Kuo has to say about the paired iPhone (or even the iPad).

It seems that Apple is thinking about using color e-ink displays for future products, and this option would be a good fit for a low-power second-screen experience for a compact form factor device. Other ongoing rumors suggest that Cupertino is also in the process of considering different designs for the compact iPad. So yes, it seems that the paired Apple working on it has the highest probability of having a paired iPad and not a paired iPhone (or maybe both, why not). Two months ago, display analyst Ross Young and Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman talked about the 20-inch MacBook / iPad format, and both said it was in development.

Kuo is suggesting that the e-ink display could be used for the external display of the Apple duplicate device (a display that is included without having to open the display). However, if Apple really decides to go for this, it will be noticeable and a big difference from the foldable on the Android market. The thing is, devices like the Galaxy Z Fold 3 feature a full 6.2-inch AMOLED display when paired, which can be used in the same way as any other smartphone display, regardless of the paired phone . When you open it, then you get a big 7.6-inch screen, but if you are active in a busy bus and want to chat with your friends, holding and chatting is comfortable and convenient. However, e-ink display would not be appropriate for this type of design.

On the other hand, as 9to5Mac suggests right, the e-ink display seems more likely if Apple decides to go for a more compact design like that of the Galaxy Z Flip models. In this case, there is a small 1.9-inch screen that allows you to read notifications and check time, but does not provide a full screen experience.

It seems easy to use e-ink display for that purpose, because it will not be very powerful for static content, and therefore helps extend battery life (more importantly, we can add). E-ink displays also have a very small refresh rate, but if the display is too small (such as a 1.9-inch one), the refresh rate is irrelevant. With all that said, you need to keep in mind that there is no official information on the paired iPhone or paired iPad, and that Apple may choose to change its mind and not use e-ink for display outside. There is still some time before we see the folded iPhone in action, so it is safe to assume that thoughts may change not once or twice.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
