Apple is evaluating if there will be enough IGZO panel supply in 2013 to use the technology for its next generation iDevices, reports DigiTimes.

The sources said Apple is in further discussions with Sharp over IGZO panel production capacity estimates for 2013 and is also inquiring about whether AU Optronics' (AUO) L5C line could be used to produce the technology.

Additionally, Innolux Corporation (formerly Chimei Innolux, or CMI) has reportedly been licensed by Sharp to use Sharp's IGZO technology on its 3G and 5G lines, which could mean that Innolux may enter Apple's supply chain in the future, added the sources.


It's been rumored several times that Apple will switch to IGZO display panels; however, the company hasn't used the technology yet.

It's clearly not the cost of a $5 part, but rather the supply availability. Apple, because it only releases once a year (until recently) sells a phenomenal amount of units. If they can only get enough supply for 70% of their expected delivery, it's simply a no go. With hundreds of separate products, this isn't that big a deal for Amazon phones. If you have a problem with Apple's repair policies (which I'm not actually convinced you do), that's completely different than whether they make good products or not. Macs are still a w volume product for Apple.l

Remember Apple founders and 99% of its employees are Jews.
