Rumor: Apple might use micro-LED display for its devices ‘as soon as 2018’

 

 

Initially rumored to debut in the Apple Watch Series 2, micro-LED display technology could debut on future  Apple Watch devices next year.

 

Citing information from one executive source, Nikkei Asian Review reports that “Apple is working very hard to foster the Micro LED technology” and the use of the new display technology could be introduced “as early as next year” beginning with wearables. 

 

However, micro-LED technology is still at an early stage of development with high costs, low yield rate and technical issues. Therefore, it is unlikely that Apple will push the micro-LED technology into smartphones anytime soon. As and when the display technology matures, micro-LED could be the key for Apple to cut its reliance on Samsung to supply OLED panels for its devices.
