Apple the first time began to develop and produce its own displays for its devices. Technological developments take place in an environment of secrecy, so for competitors MicroLED screens will become available much later than for Apple devices.
Development is carried out at Apple’s secret factory near headquarters of the company in California and there are produced a small number of screens for test purposes. The company is working on the next generation of MicroLED-displays, hoping to replace OLED-screens manufactured by Samsung in their future mobile devices.
MicroLED technology has many advantages over OLED technology. Screens created with the use of MicroLED technology consume less energy, and the life of the display is much longer. MicroLED more accurately transmit black and have a higher brightness. The only drawback so far is the higher price of MicroLED displays compared to OLED screens. It is expected that the first apple devices with their own screen will appear in two years and at the initial stage it will be only a smart watch Apple Watch, the iPhone with the new display will be honored within 3-5 years.
