As the relationship between the two companies seems to have been improved, the panels from Samsung Display are expected to be used for future new products of Apple. Since the retina version of New iPad, Samsung Display had been sidelined from Apple’s new product development projects, allegedly because of Samsung’s lawsuit against Apple and Cooks reshuffle of supply chain.

LG is expected to remain the company's primary display vendor.
