Apple has ordered 170 million OLED panels from Samsung and LG for its future iPads and iPhones. Samsung is the primary supplier with 120 million orders, but LG, also seeing increased sales, will provide 50 million panels. Apple has asked it to more than double that in the future. BOE, a primary competitor of LG, has been tapped to provide mini-LED panels for refurbished products while it perfects its own OLED touch displays. Apple is expected to launch many new iPhone models featuring OLED panels by the end of 2021 such as the 5.4-inch iPhone 13 mini, 6.1-inch iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro, and 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max.

Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Apple is a client that suppliers cannot afford to lose as rising demand for iPads and iPhones and strong growth in the services business are set to drive Apple’s top line higher.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
