    Back in July 207, there were reports that Apple is on the verge of investing around $2.7 billion in LG to get OLED panels for future iPhones. However, we now hear that the Korean firm is almost ready to become Apple's second supplier for OLED screens. This will also allow Apple to reduce its dependence on Samsung who is currently the sole manufacturer of the panels in iPhone X models.  This falls in line with the previous rumor that suggested LG will be the supplier for this year's 6.5-inch "iPhone X Plus". Today's report claim that LG Display will initially supply between 2 million and 4 million units, as it continues to work on ramping up capacity. While the count of panels in small compared to the Apple iPhone sales,  Apple would gain leverage in price negotiations with Samsung. Back in April, a report from The Wall Street Journal stated that the mass production challenges caused LG to fall behind the schedule it had agreed with Apple and this made the company rethink on whether LG Display would be in a position to complement Samsung as a second source of OLED displays for the upcoming iPhones. Then again analysts at investment firm Susquehanna estimated that LG would be ...

    OnePlus CEO and founder Pete Lau at the Mobile World Congress Shanghai this week, confirmed that company is working with US carriers and that it aims to launch a 5G smartphone next year. This new 5G smartphone could be OnePlus 7/7T. Furthermore, the company's relationship with Qualcomm is allowing OnePlus to become one of the first 5G mobile phone makers. This launch will sync with the first year of 5G being available in the US. OnePlus currently launches two phones a year; the regular version in May/June and a T-variant at the end of the year around November. Carrier support would be a huge step forward for OnePlus in the U.S. as it will give users more time to spend before buying. The company has recently started selling phones through European carriers. However, Lau didn't confirm which carrier they will be partnering with, or if the support will come to more than one carrier. OnePlus 6 currently works well on AT&T's and T-Mobile's networks, but with Qualcomm chipsets, it's conceivable that it could bring a phone that works with any US carrier. As for the bloatware, Lau said "burdenless is the core of the company's phones and it means that OnePlus prioritizes speed and a bloatware-free experience." Source

With every version of the iOS update, Maps gets updated with improvements, more responsive to changes, rich visuals.
