Apple is working on a new technology called LIPO, or low-injection pressure over-molding, that will allow its future iPhones and iPads to feature razor-thin bezels. The technology is expected to debut in the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max later this year, and it could eventually make its way to other Apple products as well.
LIPO works by using a lower injection pressure than traditional over-molding methods. This allows for a thinner border around the display, which results in a more immersive viewing experience. The technology has already been used in the Apple Watch Series 7, and it is said to reduce the bezel size by up to 0.7mm.
In the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, LIPO is expected to reduce the bezel size from 2.2mm to 1.5mm. This would make the iPhone’s bezels the thinnest on the market, and it would give the devices a more premium look and feel.
In addition to the iPhone, Apple is also reportedly planning to use LIPO in future iPads. However, it is not yet clear which iPad models will be affected, or when the technology will be introduced.
The use of LIPO is just one of the ways that Apple is trying to improve the design of its products. The company is also working on new technologies such as under-display cameras and foldable displays. These technologies could eventually make their way to the iPhone and iPad, and they would further enhance the user experience.
