Apple May Switch to MicroLED Screens instead of OLED
iPhone X with OLED display has just been launched but Apple is already working on microLED technology to implement it into the future iPhones. microLED screens offer better brightness, colors and power efficiency. Apple is now collaborating with TSMC to find an alternative solution to the manufacturing challenges.
The report from Digitimes tells that Apple has downsized its research and development team of microLED in Taiwan. But further, the note tells that Apple might have reduced the team size in Taiwan because the research will continue in the US.
In 2014 Apple acquired LuxVue, a company that specializes in microLED technology. If Apple decides to switch to microLED, the company will most likely try the technology on Apple Watch first, as it did with OLED. So far it’s not clear when we see microLED displays on Apple’s devices. Sources say it may happen next year.
