LG Starts Supplying Display Panels for iPhone 14 Pro Max [Report]

Posted November 9, 2022 at 5:16pm by iClarified
LG has reportedly begun supplying display panels for the new iPhone 14 Pro Max, reports ETNews. Previously, Samsung was the sole supplier of panels for Apple's flagship smartphone.

Starting from the end of last month, LG Display claimed to have started supplying low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) thin film transistor (TFT) type OLED panels to Apple. There was an initial production delay before the release of the new iPhone; however, it was reported that it received final approval from Apple after undergoing a technology supplementation process.

ETNews notes that this is the first time LG has supplied LTPO OLED panels to Apple for a mass produced device. The technology reduces power consumption but is difficult to manufacturer, resulting in Samsung being the only approved supplier at launch.

With the addition of LG to the supply chain, the portion of Samsung Display shipments will likely decrease. However, Samsung is still supplying panels for all four models of iPhone 14. LG is supplying panels for two models, including the regular and Pro MAX, while BOE is supplying OLEDs for regular iPhones.

Notably, Apple has been reducing production of the regular iPhone 14 series as customers have skewed towards the Pro series with its better camera and display. Pro series production will allegedly be increased by 60-70%.
