Apple Begins MicroLED Screen Development

LG to pivot back to LCD for G7 to cut costs New schemes of the iPhone SE 2 confirm its design

Talking about the competition, this move will hurt the big players like Samsung, LG, Japan Display etc.as they manufactured displays for Apple in the past.

The next Apple Watch could be the first from the company to feature a MicroLED display.

Apple is designing and producing its own device displays for the first time, using a secret manufacturing facility near its California headquarters to make small numbers of the screens for testing purposes, according to people familiar with the situation. The move would see typical OLED screens now used in the Watch replaced by the low-power equivalent, with a prototype reportedly already in the works.

The likelihood of the iPhone 9 or any upcoming new Apple Watches having MicroLED screens is fairly low, however.

As Apple successfully manufactured a MicroLED screen for a future Apple Watch past year, wearables looks to be where the technology will first take off. Last year Nikkei said that Apple planned to use MicroLED in the Apple Watch, identifying a facility in Taoyuan, Taiwan as being dedicated to the tech's development. And the manufacturing of displays in-house will give full advantage to Apple.

While they are saying that OLED displays will be the future of smartphones, at present, it does make devices pretty expensive. But the report stated that this technology is unlikely to reach an iPhone for at least three to five years, due to production difficulties.

Yuanta forecast that the company's revenue for this quarter would decline 18 percent from last quarter's NT$14.78 billion, and that EPS would drop 13 percent to NT$1.5.

Apple - and many other - products now use OLED screens on their devices.

In a best case scenario, the report adds that we're likely still 3-5 years away from MicroLED displays being included on a new iPhone model. The technology finally migrated to the iPhone X past year. It demands a complex manufacturing process that involves creating and calibrating individual sub-pixels or tiny LEDs to form millions of pixels of the display and finally attaching it to glass. Each piece comes from what is known as a "donor wafer" and then are mass-transferred to the MicroLED screen.

Many earlier reports have suggested that Apple wants to reduce its reliance on Samsung and third-party suppliers in general.

Its OLED display V30 that was released a year ago wasn't able to improve smartphone sales of the company.
