Sources say Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro series panel supply relies more on LG Display

According to Korean media ETNews, LG Display has supplied 50% more OLED panels for Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro models than last year.

According to the report, LG Display supplies OLED panels for the 6.1-inch iPhone 15 Pro and the 6.6-inch iPhone 15 Pro Max (or iPhone 15 Ultra).

Apple orders received by LG Display have been scheduled from May this year to the end of this year, and the order volume is estimated to exceed 30 million pieces. IT House learned from reports that Apple plans to produce 90 million iPhone 15 series phones this year, of which Pro models account for 60%.

LG Display supplied OLED panels for the iPhone 14 Standard Edition and iPhone 14 Pro Max models last year.

Among them, the iPhone 14 Pro Max uses low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) thin-film transistors (TFTs), and the iPhone 14 standard version supplies low-temperature polysilicon (LTPS) TFTs.

The screen supply chain consulting company DSCC previously reported that the cost of low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) is $8 higher than low-temperature polysilicon (LTPS) (IT Home Note: currently about 55 yuan), and the cost of panels is $10 higher (IT Home Remarks: The current price is about 69 RMB).

LTPS uses laser heating to generate polysilicon, while LTPO adds an oxidation process, so the cost is more expensive. For consumers, the biggest advantage of LTPO is that it supports a dynamic refresh rate, which can be adjusted in the range of 1-120Hz according to the usage scenario.

Apple’s iPhone has another bug: users are forced to repeatedly enter Apple ID

According to news on April 16, Apple’s online services have experienced multiple failures in recent days, and it seems that there is a new problem that is bothering users. Several users have reported that their devices keep asking for their Apple ID password. Even if the correct password is entered, the system will prompt login failure.

Some users said the bug caused Apple devices to continually ask for their Apple ID password. In some cases, users were even logged out of their Apple IDs and could not log in again. One user said his Apple TV+ subscription also suddenly “disappeared,” preventing him from using the platform. Downdetector shows that many users are currently having issues trying to watch content from the Apple TV app.

It’s unclear how many users have been affected by the issue. Searching for “Apple ID” on Twitter, most of the users who report the problem are from Brazil and Japan, so there may be only a few regions affected by today’s outage.

A review of Apple’s System Status webpage reveals no mention of any issues affecting Apple IDs.

Earlier this month, Apple’s Weather app experienced multi-day outages, and on April 5, multiple Apple online services were inaccessible for hours.

In addition to iPhone mobile phones, some users also said that their Apple TV + subscriptions also “disappeared suddenly” and could no longer use the platform normally.

At present, most of the users who report encountering similar problems are from Brazil and Japan, but Apple officials have not indicated that there are any problems affecting Apple ID in the above regions.

At present, Apple officials have not made any response to this issue.
