Apple re-evaluating BOE OLED displays for iPhone 14 series
Earlier this year China’s BOE had reportedly struck a deal with Apple to supply OLED display panels for the upcoming iPhone 14 series. That deal seemed to be in question back in May as BOE had altered the display circuit design which prompted Apple to halt its orders. Now, South Korea’s The Elec is reporting that Apple is re-evaluating sample BOE displays and may proceed to place a large-scale order.
Based on sources close to the matter, if BOE receives a green light from Cupertino it would try to begin maximum capacity display production between July and August. The new report specifies that the BOE OLED panels would be used for the iPhone 14 and 14 Max while the iPhone 14 Pro series would get Samsung and LG panels instead.
