Sources cited by the Taiwanese media have recently suggested that the next iPhone will employ a glassless 3D display, or at least that Apple is taking this idea into consideration. In addition, these sources claim that Apple is also planning on creating a 3D “hardware and software ecosystem”. We don’t know what hardware ecosystem means (VR?) but a software ecosystem definitely makes sense if this kind of tech is to be more than a gimmick.
The glasses-free 3D display can't be manufacturered with in-cell touch technology. Therefore, Apple is reportedly looking back to TPK to manufacture new displays with 3D. It's said that TPK is already arranging financing should it receive an order from Apple.
While 3D interfaces (Amazon Fire Phone) have yet to take off, Apple has been investigating them. One patent reveals that Apple is working on a 3D Graphical User Interface for iOS devices that will work with proximity sensor arrays and will respond to hovering gestures. Another patent entitled 'Working with 3D objects' describes techniques and systems that support generating, modifying, and manipulating 3D objects using 3D gesture inputs.
Do you think Apple should pursue a 3D display for the iPhone 6s? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
