But first, such a screen will appear in the Apple Watch Ultra
Apple plans to equip the new iPhones with its own MicroLED display, which will provide higher brightness, lower power consumption, improved contrast and other advantages over current OLED displays.
The Apple Watch Ultra will be the first Apple device to switch to MicroLED. Smartwatches will be followed by iPhones and iPads. MacRumours writes about this with reference to the Taiwanese edition of DigiTimes, which has its own sources.
iPhone will abandon OLED displays and switch to Apple’s own MicroLED screens
Starting with the Apple Watch, Apple plans to continue bringing MicroLED displays to the iPhone and iPad. IT industry sources predict that the Apple Watch Ultra will no longer use the existing OLED display by the end of 2024 or 2025, as it will be replaced by Apple’s own MicroLED display.
If the Apple Watch Ultra gets a MicroLED screen in a year or two, then the first iPhone using this technology is likely to appear in a few more years. All four iPhone 15 models coming later this year are expected to feature OLED displays.
The first Apple device with an OLED display was the original Apple Watch, followed by the iPhone X, and the first iPad and Mac models with OLED displays are rumored to arrive next year.
