In a bid to reduce its dependence on Samsung and LG, Apple Inc. is planning to start using its own displays in mobile devices as early as 2024, Bloomberg reports.
By the end of next year, Apple should have swapped out the display in the highest-end Apple Watches, according to Bloomberg.
The iPhone maker will be dumping the current OLED — organic light-emitting diode — standard to a technology called microLED.
The report adds that Apple plans to eventually bring the displays to other devices, including the iPhone.
Apple is trying to replace supplies with homegrown parts in order to have more control over the design and capabilities of its products.
The move will deal a blow to Samsung Display Co. and LG Display Co., the two main suppliers of the watch’s screens.
Apple’s 2024 target could potentially slip until 2025, the report added.
