Apple wants to deal a heavy blow to Samsung

Apple and the iPhone are almost entirely dependent on Samsung for one of the most important elements of the device: the screen. For years Apple has been looking for a new supplier of screens to reduce its dependence on the Korean brand, but without any success. But it seems that Apple has found a plan to finally reduce reliance on Samsung.

It seems that the Apple’s plan is to bet on micro-LED technology by producing its own screens for the iPhone. This is something that has never been done on the iPhone or any other Apple device, since the company always buys the panels from third parties.

Apple is getting involved in the mass production of next-generation displays to reduce its reliance on rival Samsung and increase its own control over the supply of a key component.

According to informa Nikkei AsiaApple plans to make its own microLED displays in order to reduce its dependence on Samsung and increase its own control over supply, laying the groundwork for its ultimate goal: bringing this technology to iPhones.

According to the sources, Apple has spent at least a billion dollars on research and development of micro-LED technology in the last decade. and the objective is none other than to manufacture the iPhone screens. Although it will not be alone to do so, since Apple has partnered with ams-Osram for the microLED components, with LG Display for the substrates and with TSMC for the wafers necessary for its manufacture.

Apple’s ultimate plan is to introduce the technologies into its iPhone, which is its main source of revenue and has much higher volume, to justify the investments over the years.

The screens micro-LEDs often have some interesting advantages over OLED panels. On the one hand, consume less energywhich is very important in devices like the iPhone, and on the other they are much thinner. In addition, they also offer pure blacks like OLED screens without degradation or burning problems as they do not use organic components.

Despite all this investment, iPhones are not expected to use micro-LED displays any time soon. Rumors indicate that we won’t have an iPhone with a micro-LED screen until 2025, and nothing guarantees that it won’t be delayed even further. Therefore, at the moment Samsung is still the only option for Apple, although everything can change in a few years.
