Apple Is Secretly Developing Its Own Screens For The First Time

Further, considering that an updated new iPad range, including a bezel-free iPad Pro 2018, has reportedly been in development, we feel that Apple could easily relaunch its current iPad as a new, more affordable model with Apple Pencil support, aimed at teachers and students. Those challenges apparently nearly made Apple shut down the project a year ago, but it didn't, and now working displays are being produced.

Lin pointed out that the MBOM of the iPhone X was more than $400 (approximately Rs 26,026) in 2017. A cheaper 5.85-inch OLED iPhone might then be Apple's answer to those concerns.

Apple plans to expand its use of OLED screens until MicroLED is ready for market, going from one iPhone model to two and adding LG as a second supplier alongside Samsung.

That said, the 5.85-inch OLED iPhone will surprisingly be the cheapest of the three.

The format of Apple's 2018 lineup is the worst kept secret of the season, with a near-guarantee that we'll once again see three new iPhones released, including a 6.1-inch LCD iPhone that is meant to be a replacement for the 5.8-inch iPhone X, as well as a bigger version that is said to be named the iPhone X Plus with an OLED screen and a size of 6.5 inches. Apple now offers its highest end iPad Pro tablets in two screen sizes - 10.5-inches and 12.9-inches.

An Apple sales associate speaks with a customer waiting to purchase a new iPhone X in NY, U.S., November 3, 2017. "However, the project was shut mid-February and maybe eventually terminated".

In Apple's case, perfecting MicroLED screen production would remove the need to rely on companies including Samsung, Japan Display, Sharp, and LG Display. Apple already started making its own chips, now it's attempting to make displays. That iPhone is not the one being mentioned in the report by the analyst since that one is rumored to have a 6.5-inch edge to edge display. The iPhone-maker now sources OLED panels from Samsung Display for the iPhone X. We could very well see a new Apple Pencil with expanded compatibility for lower-end iPads. If Apple were to pass on that savings to customers, the next iPhone X could cost about $900 instead of $999. Due to the sheer number of devices needed for an Apple product launch, new iPhones are assembled en masse at least a month ahead of the release date. While the display on the iPhone X is extremely color accurate, it's still not quite flawless.
