Apple is hard at work developing its own next generation of Retina displays according to a new report. The company is prototyping its own MicroLED technology in a US factory before potentially partnering to mass produce the panels in the next two to three years.

Apple is hard at work developing its own display technology for future iPhones, according to a new report. The new MicroLED technology is said to be superior to OLED display tech, and will also help it reduce its reliance on fierce rival Samsung, which currently supplies the OLED panels fitted to the iPhone X

It is not the first time reports have surfaced of Apple’s interest in MicroLED technology. The company has filed patents on the tech in the past, but it appears that it is inching towards being able to work with a manufacturer to mass produce it in the next two to three years. It said to be in the process of manufacturing prototype MicroLED panels at this stage, which offer advantages over LCD and OLED displays by being thinner, brighter and more efficient. MicroLED is similar to OLED, but uses different materials and compounds.

In the short term, however, Apple will continue using Samsung displays in its high-end iPhone line. It is also investing heavily in LG Display to help put it in a position to manufacture OLED displays for the rumoured 6.5-inch iPhone Xs Plus slated for a late September launch. The cost of producing OLED displays remains high, however, and has been mooted as a reason the next LG G7 (or its equivalent), will feature an LCD panel.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
