Apple is developing its own MicroLED display technology for future iOS devices


In iPhoneros we have told you about the MicroLED screens on several occasions , and today this technology sounds like the one that Apple will use in future iOS devices, starting with the Apple Watch.
This new display technology would, theoretically, have the advantages of OLED screens and the advantages of LCD screens in a kind of hybrid system. Today, Apple uses Samsung's OLED displays on the iPhone X, the first iPhone model that does not use an LCD screen, for one simple reason; They are the only ones that can manufacture it in the volume needed to feedthe manufacture of many millions of iPhones. It is a different screen of the OLED that Samsung uses in its own smartphones because it has been designed by Apple, but it is still a screen manufactured by Samsung Display, the business group of the biggest rival the company has. For that reason it would make a lot of sense that Apple was planning to develop its own screen technology to free itself from this dependency that, in the long term, can be dangerous.
They tell us in Bloomberg, Apple could be investing more money than ever before in this MicroLED technology, and if they succeed they would get screens that consume less energy than OLEDs, and are even thinner. This is the reason why the Apple Watch would be the first iOS device to use one, as consumption and its small size are undoubtedly the most important factors of a screen on a clock. They are also the smallest screens in the entire family of iOS devices, and the smaller screens are easier to manufacture without flaws than the larger ones. On these lines you can see the facilities that, according to Bloomberg, Apple uses to investigate and develop the MicroLED technology of its future screens. It is a small place where only prototypes of these screens can be manufactured and tested.
It is known that Apple has interest in this type of screens since it bought LuxVue , a company specialized in the investigation of this type of MicroLED technology.
