Since last year, the news of "Apple's development of microLED screen" has been reported. Recently, reports from foreign media indicate that Apple is negotiating with Taiwanese manufacturers to commercialize Micro LEDs next year, and the first Apple product with a Micro LED screen is likely to be Apple Watch.
All along, Apple's screen supply is mainly from Samsung, and in order to get rid of Samsung's "control", in recent years, in addition to training other manufacturers (such as investing billions of dollars in LG Display to support their development of their own OLED products), Apple has also accelerated The rhythm of the self-developed screen. In March last year, Bloomberg reported that Apple had a secret factory in Santa Clara County, Calif., and was developing a self-designed Micro LED display to replace Samsung's OLED screen.
Both Micro LEDs and OLEDs have a self-illuminating structure. The former is based on traditional GaN LED technology and has advantages in brightness, efficiency and power consumption. However, due to low yield and high cost, the development of Micro LED has been blocked.
