Apple’s future products may have displays made of micro-LEDs, including the iPhone, iPad, and Mac


We have been spreading certain rumours about upcoming Apple Watch models that have been sent to us by analyst Jeff Pu and tipster Ross Young. These rumours were shared the week before last. According to Pu, the future second-generation Apple Watch Ultra, which is expected to be presented before the end of the third quarter of 2024, would feature an upgraded display. The launch is projected to take place in the year 2024. The LTPO AMOLED display on the first generation of the watch has a width of 1.92 inches and is 1.92 inches tall. The micro-LED display on the watch of the second generation will have a width of 2.1 inches and a length of 2.1 inches.

The use of extremely diminutive light-emitting diodes (LEDs), which are responsible for backlighting in micro-LED displays, is the method by which this task is completed. These screens create colours that are more accurate, blacks that are deeper, and contrast that is stronger; despite the fact that they are harder to construct. In addition to this, screen burn-in is not an issue with these panels in contrast to LCD and OLED displays. Ross Young, who is also the company’s co-founder and CEO, is the person primarily responsible for establishing Display Supply Chain Consultants. There is a consensus among business professionals that Young is one of the most dependable inside sources (DSCC). Young chimed in on the subject by publishing a tweet in which he indicated that Apple will switch to mini-LED displays for the standard Apple Watch beginning with Series 11 in 2025. The tweet was published in response to a question about the situation.

After his initial tweet, Young followed up with a second tweet in which he indicated that LG Display is currently in the process of building a tiny assembly line for the manufacturing of micro-LEDs, and that it is slated to commence operations in the later half of the year 2024. Even though Apple purchased the micro-LED producer LuxVue in 2014, Young claimed that the technology giant located in Cupertino will not be involved in the full process of developing micro-LED components. This is despite the fact that LuxVue was owned by Apple. Because of this, LG Display is going ahead with the construction of the assembly line that had been announced before.

Mark Gurman of Bloomberg was quoted in today’s edition of his weekly Power On newsletter as saying that after Apple implements the micro-LED technology for the Apple Watch and Apple Watch Ultra, the iPhone would be the next product to feature micro-LED displays. This statement was made in reference to the fact that the iPhone would be the next product to feature the technology after the Apple Watch and Apple Watch Ultra. The words that Gurman made were in reference to the intentions that Apple has. In addition, the paper by Gurman suggests that Apple may one day switch to using micro-LED for the displays that are present on iPad tablets and Mac computers.
