Unofficial changes to the iPhone 13 display design forced Apple to suspend BOE orders

Faced with a shortage of the company’s infamous component as a result of a complete storm of supply chain factors, one of Apple’s OLED display manufacturers, BOE, decided to have wings and change the design of the panel on its own in order to stay profitable, in according to The Elec. The BOE slowly worked its way up the iPhone screen supply chain, first providing replacement OLED panels for adjustments, then turning its way into the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 display supply chains, until it was functional with providing Apple with 40 screens million this year.

It will provide a fraction of that amount as Apple is said to have suspended orders from the BOE since at least February. One of the reasons is said to be the change in the design of the iPhone OLED display design that the BOE decided to make when faced with the lack of IC display drivers (DDI). Obviously, the screen maker changed slightly to the display driver design “to make the film thinner transistor (TFT) thinner circuit” and with the production instructions of your iPhone 13 panel.

Apple took the wind of change, reported industry insiders, and began reducing the BOE’s market share in its supply chain by switching DDI components to LG, another screen manufacturer that differs from Samsung’s OLED monopoly. It’s normal Samsung Display patents that could be another reason for the company’s BOE acquisition, as it has recently been revealed that Samsung may have notified Apple that the BOE is violating its patent system and touch electrode OLED patents. In any case, it looks like the BOE will be struggling with its iPhone display production platforms this year and could put its ideas into a spin on the iPhone 15 Pro series supply chain on the back.

Apple may return to double square with iPhone OLED display options ayika Around the time of the iPhone 11, Apple also tried to leave Samsung by finding LG and BOE however their yield was almost not enough for anything but low levels or repair features, so Samsung also has a lion’s share of iPhone OLED supply options. The game came shortly after Samsung’s OLED display on Apple’s iPhones finally started to crack, because, according to the same Elec source, last year LG doubled its OLED screen offerings to Apple, and even the manufacturer BOE scruffy gets a digital piece of pie, all at the expense of the Samsung Display.

Apple needed about 50% more iPhone OLED panels last year when compared to 2020. Of these, just about 65% have made Samsung, a huge reduction from 78% of the previous year. The rest comes from LG and BOE, and, in the case of LG, we say the level is about 50 million units, or double 25 million provided by 2020. As far as the iPhone 12 levels are concerned, Apple is not testing only water with LG OLED displays, as small and medium sizes are not a solid industry standard, it does not look like large TV panels. Instead, it relegated LG to next-generation display services for iPhone screen replacements or wearables like the Apple Watch.

The BOE is also working on an OLED 6.1 ″ iPhone 12 display, but it used to deliver poor fruit with good quality, leaving Apple with only Samsung and they have LG as OLED production sources. Back in 2021, however, the widely circulated iPhone 13 and iPhone 12 versions were favored with several more non-Samsung-initiated panels, and that trend increased further, until Apple decided to reduce the panel received from the BOE this year.

Whether due to car supply issues, unofficial panel adjustments, or Samsung patent concerns, the game is running with the iPhone’s BOE display configuration set Apple back to square one in terms of customization away from Samsung.
