Apple plans to start using internal displays for select Apple Watch models from 2024: report
Apple plans to start using its own custom displays in its mobile devices from 2024 in a bid to bring more components in-house, Bloomberg News reported Tuesday, citing people with knowledge of the matter.
The company aims to start replacing the display of high-end Apple Watches by the end of next year. Apple plans to eventually bring these displays to other devices as well, including the iPhone, according to the report.
The Cupertino, Calif.-based tech giant aims to reduce its reliance on other partners such as Samsung Electronics and LG.
Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Reuters, while Samsung Display, a unit of Samsung Electronics, and LG Display declined to comment.
The report adds that the displays will upgrade the current OLED standard to a technology called microLED.
Bloomberg News reported on Monday that Apple plans to replace Broadcom chips in its devices with an in-house design in 2025.
The iPhone maker has been trying to limit its dependence on other chipmakers, having adopted its own line of chips for recent models of its Mac computers, replacing those from Intel.
