If the rumors are to be believed, the upcoming iPhone 8 is expected to sport an OLED display, the first of its kind as far as iPhones are concerned (the Apple Watch uses an OLED screen). However given that these are just rumors it’s hard to say if they are real, but the iOS 11 GM release seems to hint at that.

iOS 11 has yet to hit GM status officially, but it seems that the GM copy was recently leaked and according to the leak, it has revealed several new wallpapers which is what we typically expect from Apple with every major iOS update, however what’s interesting about these wallpapers is that they seem to have been designed for OLED screens in mind, thanks to the use of the deep blacks which is one of the signature features of an OLED screen versus LCD.

If you’re viewing the wallpapers on an LCD smartphone or monitor then maybe the effect might not be quite as obvious, but if you were to view them on an OLED screen then you can probably tell the difference. Of course this is by no means confirmation of any kind, but it does seem to hint at the possibility. In any case Apple will be officially taking the wraps off the iPhone 8 come 12th of September, so check back with us then for the details.
