By Prarthito

We have said this earlier, and we shall say this again. Apple's ever-present nature on the internet - both in the past and in present times - have offered fans a number of reasons to strike a debate related to anything that's tagged Apple. While sometimes it has been related to a new iPhone, on other occasions the discussions have hovered around an upgraded version of the iOS platform.

This time however, the newest topic of discussion is the kind of LED backlight that could be featured in the next Apple-made iPhone and iPad, as reports are claiming that Apple is looking to shed some weight off its new iPhone and iPad devices by introducing a thinner LED backlight.

Apple to Shed Weight off Next iPhone, iPad with Thinner LED Backlight


Apple, as of now, has been pretty concerned with the lightness of the devices it releases every year. And with the third-generation iPad kept aside, Apple has maintained its trend of reducing the size of a device in terms of weight almost every year. And now the company is looking to make the next generation iPhones and iPads even lighter than usual.

So now, according a report from LEDinside, a division of research firm TrendForce, Apple is looking to shift to even thinner components for the future so as to provide that ultra slim look the new devices.

"According to sources from Apple supply chain, the iPhone 6 is likely to be released in June 2014, and will have larger monitor size of 4.7-inch. Industry insiders also projected the iPhone 6 will have a much lighter frame, which will lead to upgrades in LED backlight specs," the report states.

"In the previous generation, the iPhone used 0.6t side-view type LED, in contrast the new iPhone will probably be adopting 0.4t side-view type LED," it adds.
