Switching from IPS to OLED technology may improve the different areas of the smartphone, including accuracy, brightness, and saturation. The report also stated that the first first flexible iPhone might first appear in 2018 and top-tier Watch panel suppliers, Samsung and LG Display, are starting to work around it. Currently, the only Apple product which contain the flexible OLED display is the Apple Watch, with a less than 42 millimeters screen that is supplied by LG and Samsung's display arms, Apple Insider reported.

Adopting the OLED display allow the company to work on flexible properties, producing new form factors and correcting weak points like color saturation, accuracy, and brightness. It will also allow to produce more curved iPhones that appears like LG's own G Flex2, smartphones that are able to bend under pressure. In this case, it can reduce accidental damage, with or without a case. On the other hand, LG Display also plans to switch one of their LCD lines from the Gumi plant over to OLED, expanding its general OLED capacity and target mass production is on 2017.

While this Apple's new plan would not happen any time soon, iPhone 6S may appear later this year. iPhone 6S will feature a decent number of technologies including improved camera optics, a new processor, Force Touch display tech, and will run under iOS 9 operating system.
