Chinese display maker BOE has received permission to produce screens for the iPhone 14, despite being caught by Apple recently in fraudulent displays for the iPhone 13.
According to IT Home, Apple has forgiven BOE and even allowed the production of screens for the iPhone 13 to resume. Moreover, the supplier has resumed orders for panels for the iPhone 14.
Following controversy over the redesign of the iPhone 13’s OLED displays, Chinese company executives visited Cupertino to explain the situation to Apple’s management and get approval to produce screens designed for the iPhone 14.
It is worth noting that the company has never been lenient towards suppliers who “played against the rules.” Most likely, the reason is that building a relationship with BOE will help Apple improve its negotiating position with Samsung and LG.
BOE will start mass production of displays in July, with the first batch shipped in September.
Apple will purchase more than 90 million AMOLED panels for the iPhone 14 in 2022, of which Samsung Display (SDC) will supply 60 million units, LG Display 25 million, and BOE no more than 5 million, according to industry analysts.
