, Samsung will supply Apple with 80 million OLED panels for the upcoming iPhone 14 series, of which 38.17 million belong to the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max. It is rumored that these two models will support LTPS technology, while LTPO technology will be reserved for the higher-positioned iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. It is unclear how many OLED panels another supplier, LG, will provide.
According to The Elec
, Apple will begin evaluating BOE’s OLED panels for iPhone 14 models this week. Due to the previous unauthorized changes to the specifications, Apple began to reduce the supply of BOE in February this year. It even temporarily suspended the supply, which cast a shadow over BOE’s plan to provide OLED panels for the iPhone 14 models. After some communication, Apple
has gradually restored the supply of BOE.
If all goes well, BOE will be able to receive orders for OLED panels for Apple’s iPhone 14 models by the end of this month. The supply quantity is about 5 million, which should be less than expected. Compared to Samsung and LG, BOE is a few weeks late, and the number is much smaller. Apple is expected to start mass production of the iPhone 14 series between July and August, and it is rumored that the release time of the new generation of products is September 13.
