Apple is moving to OLED iPhones

Multiple reports and rumors in the past have suggested that Apple will switch from LCD to OLED display for next year's iPhone. Now we have confirmation regarding this.

According to CEO and President of company responsible for the current LTPS (low-temperature poly-silicon) displays of iPhone 7, Sharp, confirmed Apple's switch to OLED (organic light-emitting diode) display for its next iPhones.

By switching to OLED, the iPhone will have a even more power efficient and brighter panels like Samsung flagship devices. OLED's offer incredibly deeper blacks and will improve the iPhone's battery power while boosting screen resolution.

“The iPhone has been evolving and now it is switching from LTPS (low-temperature poly-silicon) to OLED panels. We don’t know whether Apple’s OLED iPhones will be a hit, but if Apple doesn’t walk down this path and transform itself, there will be no innovation. It is a crisis but it is also an opportunity.” Sharp’s CEO and President Jeng-wu Tai told Nikkei Asian Review.

In order to address the demand for OLED panels, Sharp is already looking into building new factories in Japan, and if needed, in the United States too if Apple asked for it.

Apple currently uses OLED screens on the Apple Watch and new MackBook Pro's Touch Bar. To date, all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices have used traditional LCD screens.
