iPhone 6, iWatch and 12.9-inch iPad Displays Noted in DisplaySearch Report

DisplaySearch, a research firm that focuses specifically on the display market, recently issued a report in which it tried to peg screen sizes and resolutions for upcoming devices, including what it expects to see used for the iPhone 6, the 12.9-inch iPad and the iWatch.

In a few tables, DisplaySearch outlines various screen technologies and what products use them. In one section, however, the company surmises that perhaps Apple will indeed include either a 4.7-inch display with a 1600 x 900-pixel resolution, or a 5.5-inch display with a 1920 x 1080-pixel resolution on the next iPhone. The company rightly adds “iPhone 6?” in the column for notes, since nothing is definite just yet. Similarly, DisplaySearch considers two sizes for the iWatch — also in line with rumors — both with a 320 x 320-pixel resolution flexible OLED display. Finally, the firm also suspects Apple may include a 2732 x 2048-pixel 12.9-inch screen on the rumored larger iPad.


These figures are only a representation of what DisplaySearch expects to happen this year, but considering that’s basically the firm’s whole business, it’s pretty compelling to see this data. With mass production of the iWatch and 12.9-inch iPad allegedly set to begin next quarter, Apple very likely already has its displays picked out.
