Encouragingly, teen enthusiasm for the Apple brand doesn't extend just to smartphones. Even then, this will only happen if LG Display can produce the screens reliably and in the massive scale Apple would require.

That is not to say that the foldable iPhone leak might take place from LG's side; it might definitely take place but there are smaller chances of that happening.

Apple has been rumored to be working closely with LG Display for a foldable iPhone but it has been reported that the California-based giant is going to keep out Samsung from the entire project.

The LCD-screen iPhone 8 series phones, which have display sizes of 4.7 and 5.5 inches, went on sale September 22.

The poll panel, for the first time, will also introduce all-women polling stations in Gujarat in all assembly segments. A K Joti also said that voter-verified paper audit trail (VVPAT) system will be used in over 50,000 booths in Gujarat.

Although Apple has yet to launch the Face ID feature on an iPhone, rumors about where the facial recognition tech might appear next has already been making the rounds online. For the iPhone X, Samsung was the supplier of the OLED panels.

Although Samsung is still expected to supply OLED panels for Apple's 2018 iPhones, LG, which recently started OLED production for phones at Chinese plant, is reportedly planning to supply iPhone panels from 2019 onwards. LG reportedly completed its first such prototype two to three years ago and has been improving the durability and yield rate ever since. Understandably, Samsung is the biggest arch rival of Apple and buying OLED displays from them means dropping cash right in enemy pockets.

This report follows the rumours from July that suggested Apple's plan to apparently invest as much as $2.6 billion in support of LG's new OLED plant (a deal that hasn't been finalized as of yet).

Apple's CEO told the UK Independent yesterday that "We don't give a rat's about being first, we want to be the best, and give people a great experience".
