  • Apple working on power-efficient MicroLED displays for iPhones, Watch

According to a new report from Bloomberg, Apple is secretly developing its own MicroLED screens to be used on future devices. It also mentions the intricacies associated with MicroLED production and the fact that it is harder to manufacture as opposed to OLED. But the report stated that this technology is unlikely to reach an iPhone for at least three to five years, due to production difficulties.

Meanwhile, the Apple Watch screen is made by LG's display division. Until then, Apple will have to continue buying screens from suppliers like Samsung and LG. If all goes well, Apple could decide to bring MicroLED to more products in the future, including the company's iPhone. We have seen the company move the production of numerous iPhone's components in-house and it's now said to be doing the same for displays as well.

According to a fresh report from Bloomberg, the smartwatch could soon feature the budding display technology, with Apple looking to make a "significant investment" over the coming years.

Gurman believes that Apple's plans will help boost its grip on the technology market, but they will threaten companies such as Samsung and Sharp.

Apple's iPhone X contract is a very lucrative one.

Even though, it could still be years before consumers finally benefit from the research and tech development that's reportedly going on within Apple. Race to commercialise next-gen displays Since this is the first time Apple's producing its own displays, technical troubles are to be expected during development. What they will be using is the MLCD+ display which will take up 35% less power than the normal LCD and will also have better brightness.

It's unclear at this point when MicroLED could come to some of Apple's devices.

While display makers are already anxious, they don't need to worry about losing Apple's business yet. And it looks like the repercussions of this report are already causing mild disruptions in share prices of display makers such as Samsung and Sharp. Executives of Apple have given a go-ahead to the program for the next two years with the aim of seeing MIcroLED screens in products.
