After long lasting battles on patterns and other conflicts, Samsung and Apple seem to have no other option that to shake their hands and make another deal. The new iPad from Apple will use 7.9 inch Retina displays at a resolution of the displays will be 2,048 x 1,536 pixels. Samsung seems to be the most appropriate supplier at this time. The deal will be done in the second half of the year and it will be the first step of a possible long collaboration as Samsung announced that they will also provide the displays for the fifth generation of iPads. In this way, Samsung and Apple will probably calm down with their conflicts and will try to be more like "friends" in the world of technology. It is well known that the two big companies have some lawsuits against each other and we expect those conflicts to finish earlier than the press thought. Apple announced earlier that it has a lot of problems with the displays from Sharp and Taiwan's AU Optronics and will try to make another deal in the next future to improve the quality of its products. So, Apple will collaborate not only with Samsung, but with LG too as LG is already involved in Samsung's business. The problem was solved this way for Apple, but they slowed down the process of manufacturing the next generation of iPads. They said that the displays used had a small quality and this is why they need to move on and find another solution for their products. So, the new iPad will be probably launched in the fourth quarter of the year.
