As you likely already know, Apple uses a variety of suppliers for the components used to build its iPhones and other products. While the Cupertino firm uses three suppliers for its iPhone displays, one supplier stands out when it comes to OLED displays for the iPhone 14 lineup.
According to a report from The Elec, Samsung Display is expected to account for 70% of the OLED panels used by Apple for the iPhone 14 models by the end of the year.
Apple has reportedly ordered more than 120 million OLED panels for the iPhone 14 lineup. Samsung is expected to supply Apple with 80 million of these displays. Apple’s two other OLED panel suppliers to Apple LG Display and BOE, are expected to ship 20 million units and six million units respectively.
While LG only provides LTPS displays for the iPhone 14 and LTPO for the iPhone 14 Pro Max, BOE only provides LTPS displays for the regular iPhone 14. However, Samsung supplies panels for every iPhone 14 model. Of the 80 million units shipped by Samsung, at least 60 million will be used for the high-end iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max models.
Samsung is the leading supplier of OLED displays to Apple as the other companies have been facing issues in production.
