(Reuters) – Apple plans to start using its own custom displays in its mobile devices to bring more components in-house after 2024.
The company plans to start by replacing the top-of-the-line Apple Watch displays by the end of next year. According to reports, Apple will eventually bring these displays to other devices, including the iPhone.
The Cupertino, Calif.-based tech giant aims to reduce its reliance on other partners such as Samsung Electronics and LG.
Apple did not immediately respond to Reuters’ request for comment, but Samsung Display and LG Display, both divisions of Samsung Electronics, declined to comment.
The report added that the screen will upgrade the current OLED standard to a technology called microLED.
Bloomberg News reported Monday that Apple plans to replace Broadcom Inc chips in its devices with ones of its own design in 2025.
iPhone makers are working to limit their reliance on other chip makers, and have moved to their own line of chips, replacing Intel’s chips for recent Mac computer models.
