ETNews reports that LG Display is preparing to supply Apple with OLED display panels to be used in upcoming iPad models.
The report indicates LG will expand its plant in Paju, South Korea to expand production capacity for Apple’s next-generation iPad and iPhone models.
LG Display has snagged a new opportunity for OLED panels for the iPad models, as the size and aspect ratio of the device’s display are not easily available from other suppliers. A recent report claimed that BOE is also getting ready to supply OLED panels for future iPad models.
LG has plans to start mass production of iPad panels at its Paju facility in 2024. This timing lines up with other recent reports, which have indicated that the launch of the OLED iPad will take place between 2023 and 2024.
LG last year halted LCD panel production for the iPhone and shut down its smartphone division. The company has since restructured its business focusing on OLED panels and is working to accelerate the expansion of its production capacity.
