Although Beijing Oriental Electronics (BOE) grabbed a deal with Apple to manufacture iPhone 14 OLED displays, it seems Apple has some other plans in hand. Before even the manufacturing begins, BOE needs to have a green light from Apple, which The Elec reports, hasn’t been given yet. This may cause the company to close the deal sooner or later.
This is happening because, without consulting Apple, the manufacturer changed the circuit design of the displays meant for the iPhone 13, thus forcing Apple to call for a halt in production. To explain why BOE changed the circuit design, a C-level executive, along with some employees, from the company went to Apple HQ in Cupertino. Do note, that Apple has halted production since Feb.
Alongside this, the firm is also trying to get the green signal from Apple for beginning the production of the OLED panels for the iPhone 14, but Apple is not giving any clear response to them. In total, BOE was going to manufacture around 30-million displays. But due to the unilateral decision, Apple might turn to its rivals – Samsung Display and LG Display.
