According to the latest report, Apple will evaluate BOE’s OLED panels this week to determine whether they will be used on the iPhone 14. BOE hopes to get Apple’s approval within this month.
If it can become an iPhone 14 screen supplier, BOE will start mass production of panels for the iPhone 14 in the iPhone 14 series in July or August. That’s a few weeks after its South Korean rivals Samsung Display and LG Display, which are expected to start mass production by the end of the month.
Earlier this year, Apple found that BOE had changed the design of its OLED panels by expanding the circuit width of thin-film transistors, and Apple told BOE to stop production, which led to the supply of BOE ‘s iPhone 13 panels starting in February decline.
After that, BOE executives visited Cupertino, Apple’s headquarters, and explained the situation to Apple, and were given the opportunity to evaluate its iPhone 14 OLED panels, The Elec said.
The Elec also reported that sources said that BOE has now regained approval to supply panels for the iPhone 13, but given BOE’s recent failure with the iPhone 13 panels, even if it gets approval to supply the iPhone 14 panels, it may eventually supply up to 500 About 10,000 iPhone 14 panels.
