Foxconn Invest In microLED For New iPhones

Taiwanese contract manufacturing giant, Foxconn, is heavily investment in microLED technology, following reports the component will be used in next-generation iPhones.

MicroLED claims to offer per pixel lighting similar to OLED, but pledges better brightness and no burn-in.

Colour balance is also less likely to degrade over time versus OLED.

The technology – which is also being invested in by the likes of Samsung Display – is not ready for mass production, however, is tipped to be the next frontier of display tech.

Commentators claim Foxconn’s involvement could bring the tech to consumers at a more affordable level.

According to Taiwanese trade publication, DigiTimesFoxconn is heavily investing in microLED tech in a bid to win orders from Apple for forthcoming iPhones.

All three of Foxconn’s subsidiaries are reportedly implementing measures for mass microLED production, although mass production could be years away.

As previously reported, renowned Apple analyst and commentator, Ming-Chi Kuo, expects microLED to be a linchpin for future Apple products, with a microLED iPad and Macbook to launch by 2021.

Despite this, some commentators expect a microLED smartphone to only launch around 2023.
