Apple developing holographic iPhone screen in Taiwan lab

Apple logoJust yesterday, we passed along a report suggesting that Apple was working on micro-LED screens in a secret lab located in Taiwan. These displays do not require backlighting, and as a result iPhones made with micro-LED screens will be thinner and lighter. They also offer higher resolution for users. A new report published today has a more exciting story to offer. According to this version of events, Apple is secretly working on a holographic display for the iPhone that will not require the use of special glasses to view.

The interesting part of this story is that the same micro-LED display that Apple is rumored to be working on, is the catalyst behind the holographic screen. Using specialized software and hardware, the micro-LED technology can allow iPhone users to view holographs that are visible to the naked eye.

This is not science fiction. Using a micro-LED projector, display producer Ostendo demonstrated some of the concepts behind the holographic screen in a video from 2014.

While Apple hasn't confirmed any of this, keep in mind one important part of the whole equation. How much would Apple have to raise the price of the iPhone to incorporate this technology into the device?
