Chinese display manufacturer BOE has been unable to obtain Apple’s approval for the production of OLED panels for the iPhone 14 series smartphones due to an arbitrary redesign of the iPhone 13 screens.
Apple has removed the Chinese display maker from the iPhone 13 supply chain after discovering that BOE has redesigned OLED panels to increase the width of the thin-film transistor circuitry.
According to industry publication The Elec, the change was made in an attempt to increase profitability, but when Apple discovered this, it ordered BOE to stop all production immediately. As a result, BOE has not received orders from Apple for OLED panels for the iPhone 14.
Representatives of the Chinese company even visited Cupertino to explain to Apple why they unilaterally made changes to the design of the panels, but it seems that this explanation did not satisfy the customer.
It is likely that Apple will pass orders originally intended for BOE to two other suppliers, Samsung and LG.
