Apple announces the iPhone 6s and 6s plus, with LCD displays

Yesterday Apple announced their latest smartphone, the iPhone 6s (and its bigger sibling, the 6s plus). Both devices use an IPS LCD display, and also include Force Touch - and of course upgraded hardware.

Before the launch we heard some speculation that the new iPhone will adopt an OLED display - but this was actually quite unlikely, as OLED production it still dominated by Samsung, which means that there is only one supplier (which Apple will not accept for the iPhone) and even Samsung's own capacity will not be enough to satisfy Apple.

As I said last week, the earliest possible year for an OLED iPhone is 2016, although some estimate that it won't happen before 2018.
