Monday in CE: Apple Secretly Bringing MicroLED to Smartphone Arena
It appears that the secret is out, both for the disruption of MicroLED and for Apple's secret facility hellbent on perfecting it. Okay, hellbent might be a little bit of an exaggeration, and for that matter so is the word secret.
Bloomberg broke the news that Apple has this 'secret' facility, reporting that the tech behemoth's verticalization of their products shouldn't be a surprise. In fact, many of the important pieces for Apple are already manufactured in-house, both for costs and quality control reasons.
However, this is the first time that Apple would be making their own screen, and there's no better time to do it. It is a genuine step-up from OLED. There is a good chance that MicroLED will be in every flagship television over the next few years, replacing the current OLED boon. And this would also be a chance for Apple to control that market from the very start.
