Apple reportedly adds LG as second OLED display supplier for iPhone XS and XS Max
Friday, 14 September 2018 Apple has reportedly picked LG Display as its second maker of flexible OLED displays, according to Korean tech news site ETNews. Rumors of Apple using LG as a possible alternative OLED screen supplier sprung up in June, and today’s news cites unidentified sources that claim LG’s OLED panels had passed Apple’s quality tests recently.

If LG enters the picture as a second supplier, it could minimize Apple’s reliance on Samsung.
