Apple has given display manufacturer BOE the green light to produce over 5 million iPhone 14 panels using OLED technology after the company received approval from Apple to do so. The iPhone 14 is scheduled to be released in September.
The following are reports from IT Home:
The IT home news from July 6 says that, according to Runto Lotu technology research news and information from the beginning and end of the industry chain, the AMOLED panel made by the Chinese company BOE (BOE) has passed Apple’s iPhone 14 certification.
BOE used to be part of Apple’s supply chain, but it was cut out after the company changed how it made things without telling Apple. This caused Apple to stop ordering iPhone 13s from BOE.
In June, it was said that BOE would get a second chance with Apple, which was looking to approve its panels before the iPhone 14 came out later that year.
IT Home says that BOE has been given this permission and will now make 5 million units for Apple.
This is great news for us consumers because a more diverse supply chain means it will be easier to get Apple’s next best iPhone when it comes out.
It was reported earlier today that Apple expects between 55 and 60 percent of its iPhone 14 shipments to be high-end ‘Pro’ models. In the past, only 40 to 50 percent of iPhone shipments were Pro models. Apple is rumored to be planning big changes for the “Pro,” such as a new processor and an always-on screen, which won’t be added to the regular models. If that’s the case, the iPhone “Pro” could be a much better deal than in years past.
We don’t have much longer to wait to see what Apple has in store for the iPhone in 2022, given that the rumored release date is September. There are some fantastic Prime Day iPhone deals if you aren’t interested in this year’s upgrade but still need a new phone.
