Ross Young; The CEO of the Display Supply Chain Consultants research institute claimed in a report that Samsung Display has once again taken the title of the largest supplier of iPhone display panels. According to internal information, it seems that Apple has purchased 82% of the panels needed for its future iPhones from Samsung. Also, the shares of LG Display and the Chinese company BOE from these orders are 12 and 6 percent, respectively.
This report claims that the iPhone 14 Pro Max devices will initially use only Samsung-made panels. Apparently, LG is having trouble meeting the market demand and due to technical challenges, it will start delivering display orders from early September. On the other hand, the Chinese company producing display panels known as BOE is able to supply this product in high volume; But Apple has limited its purchase orders from this company only to the standard iPhone 14 model. Therefore, the purchase of display panels from BOE for iPhone 14 Pro family models has no place in Apple’s future plans.
Samsung’s share of supplying iPhone 14 family screens is similar to this company’s share in the production of iPhone 13 series last year. In 2021, Samsung supplied 83% of the display panels required for the iPhone 13 series.
Detailed information provided by Ross Young shows that the transfer of display panels from manufacturing companies to iPhone assembly plants during the months of June, July, August and September is equal to 1.8 million, 5.35 million, more than 10 million and more than 16.5 million units respectively. have been. This means that Apple is preparing to sell at least 34 million units of the iPhone 14 family in the first 3-month period after the start of their sales.
