We recently got the news that the new iPhones to be introduced this year; iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus and iPhone 8 models will sport a True Tone display.

What the True Tone technology means is that it will be able to change its shades depending on the atmosphere around. This was first developed by Apple and was exclusive to only the 9.7-inch iPad Pro, but as time is passing it is getting included in iPhones as well.


The feature is close to Night Shift, again something an iPhone feature, but it doesn’t just reduce blue light emission. It works full 24-hours and is capable of adjusting the white balance, brightness and colour, to improve our colour seeing ability on the screen and to make the text more readable.

The Austrian semiconductor manufacturer AMS, is going to provide the “full spectral sensing” ambient light sensor which is required for this technology.

“For the expected iPhone 7S models, as well as the iPhone 8, we think AMS’s content increases due to the inclusion of its full spectral sensing ambient light sensor, as already seen in the iPad Pro for that device’s True Color screen functionality. We estimate this to be a material step-up in content from the $0.60 range to $1.0,” is what the Barclay’s report says.

Other features that the iPhone 8 is expected to have are advanced wireless charging, an edge to edge OLED display, 3GB of RAM, a fingerprint scanner underneath the display, a dual camera setup at the back, some form augmented reality feature, a 3D sensor FaceTime camera, and it will have more dust and water protection than before.
