Apple and TSMC starting Apple Watch MicroLED display mass production later this year

Apple's work on developing MicroLED panels is slowly nearing mass production, according to the report, by partnering with TSMC to manufacture small panels for use in the Apple Watch and the rumored AR wearable device, potentially starting later this year.

Apr. 03, 2018 – 

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) will be producing the smaller MicroLED panels on behalf of Apple, claims Digitimes research analyst Luke Lin. Produced on silicon-based backplanes, Lin cites supply chain sources suggesting there will be two different sizes of smaller panels produced in the partnership.

A 1.3-inch to 1.4-inch panel will be produced for a future Apple Watch model, while a second 0.7-inch to 0.8-inch version will be used for an "AR wearable device," referring to the long-rumored AR headset.

According to Lin, Apple will only use the MicroLED panels in future premium models of the Apple Watch at first. The cost of production is between 400 and 600 percent higher than manufacturing existing OLED Apple Watch panels of the same size, making it prohibitive to use in entry-level models.
