Apple iPhone 6 and iPad 5 Might Feature Laser Keyboard

February 5, 2013, By Sanjeev

The iPhone 5 was set to roll out with the much rumoured Laser keyboard. But sadly it didn’t. But the rumours did not subside. The latest rumors suggest that the upcoming iPhone 6 and iPad 5 might have this feature.

With this feature, all the typing can be done on any desktop or tabletop where the alphanumeric keys will be projected. There are rumors that Apple might release 128GB models as well to pump the storage capability as well.

Apple is desperately trying to fend off increasingly aggressive campaigns by its competitors and if the new iPhone 6 features the laser enabled keyboards, it will prove once again that when it comes to research and innovations, no one can beat the Cupertino company.

It is also reported that Apple is interested in Sharp’s ultra-thin, ultra-strong IGZO displays, and may choose to use the technology in its next-generation iPhone, iPad, and iPad Mini products expected to release next year.

Displays made from indium gallium zinc oxigo, IGZO for short, are not only the best choice for any ultra-thin hardware devices Apple may hope to produce, but the displays can also reportedly handle a display density north of 330 ppi, which would be pretty impressive considering the new iPad 4 can only achieve 264 ppi.

No one knows exactly what Apple has in mind for its fifth-generation iPad, but the company may have something interesting in the offing, considering its patents for an iPad with a built-in stand, and one with backside controls for gaming.
