In multiple reports published earlier this year, it was stated that Apple is slated to invest to invest in a new LG production facility.
This is because of the fact that all iPhone versions launching in 2018 and onwards were said to be equipped with OLED displays exclusively.

Apple has been rumoured to pushing for the partnership with LG which meant the South Korean company will manufacture the OLED screens for iPhone models starting 2018. But now as it turns out, the plan is not going well and that Cupertino might be forced to work with Samsung for another year.

Even though Apple has in place a contract with Samsung for the production of OLED screens until the end of 2018, the company wants to reduce its dependency on the South Korean firm and turn to other organisations whose production would be solely focused on its own products.

 

In multiple reports published earlier this year, it was stated that Apple is slated to invest to invest in a new LG production facility whose activity would be building OLED displays for future iPhone models. This is because of the fact that all iPhone versions launching in 2018 and onwards were said to be equipped with OLED displays exclusively.

But now, as it turns out, LG will not be able to meet the production yield which Apple requested and this translates to the fact that Apple will have to stick with Samsung for another year. According to a report from Bloomberg says that LG cannot start production of OLED screens “until at least 2019,” which means that depending on how work advances on setting up the production lines, it may take even longer to begin manufacturing iPhone display.

 

One of the problems that LG is trying to deal right now is the lack of evaporation machines, mostly because of the competition from Samsung which secures most of the production equipment from suppliers.

Apple is reportedly looking into several options for the 2018 lineup of iPhones, including launching some models equipped with LG displays with limited supplies. Also, the company is said to be pondering a possible release of iPhones featured LG technology at a later time during the lifecycle of the next generation, as the company reaches full production capacity.
