iPhone 5 touch panel screens built by Sony and Hitachi
Thursday, 1 December 2011 01:00:15 GMT
Sony and Hitachi have been cited as the two companies that will be responsible for making the four inch touch panel screen for the next iPhone which Apple is likely to launch in the middle of 2012.
According to a news site based in Japan, the deal between these three firms has already been struck and the four inch display size is also confirmed, which means the fifth iPhone will be a definite evolution of this long running range.
Apple has such high demands for its smartphones that it has regularly outsourced the production of components to more than one firm, which is why it is no surprise to see both Sony and Hitachi apparently onboard for the iPhone 5's touch panel.
Meanwhile, the next iPad is also being heavily discussed and the latest rumours suggest that Sharp will be working with Apple to supply the touch panel displays for this next generation tablet.
Looking even further down the line, the fourth iPad, which could be launching in 2013, will see Apple unite with an unspecified Taiwanese touch panel firm, for perhaps the most revolutionary iteration of the device so far.

TPControl currently unavailable on the Apple App Store
Here at Touch Panel Control we strive to introduce new and exciting features for the TPControl product family.
Unfortunately in our latest Apple AppStore submission, we discovered an error would occur in the upgrade process which would potentially render using the existing TP4 design file impossible.
To prevent existing users experiencing this problem we have temporarily removed TPControl from the Apple AppStore.
A corrected version is now awaiting Apple approval. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused, but trust you will love the new features that will soon be available.
