Apple considers turning to LG for microLED smartwatch displays

Just a couple of days ago, we reported that Samsung is moving fast with its microLED panel development for smartwatches and some believe that Apple will use them for its future Watch Series. However, the latest report puts LG Display into the mix as well.

Apple might turn to LG for microLED smartwatch displays

An industry source says that LG Display has already set up operations and it’s producing backplanes for microLED screens in small quantities. Production will likely kick off in the second half of 2024, so the first Apple Watch with a microLED display is supposed to arrive in 2025.

This contradicts the recent report on Samsung’s microLED production, as analysts believe that LG’s rival will be ready with its displays as early as next year. It’s possible that Samsung would use the tech for its Galaxy Watch lineup before providing its microLEDs to Apple. Also, Apple loves to diversify its supply chains, so it’s more likely that it will want to strike deals with both companies and introduce a microLED smartwatch in 2025.
