Last week, analyst Jeff Pu and tipster Ross Young provided some information about future Apple watch models. According to Pu, the second-generation Apple Watch Ultra, which will be released after the third quarter of 2024, will include a new type of screen.
While the first generation smartwatch featured a 1.92-inch LTPO AMOLED display, the next generation will feature a 2.1-inch micro-LED display. Micro-LED displays use extremely small light-emitting diodes (LEDs) for backlight. Although it is difficult to create surfaces like this, more accurate colors, Darker blacks, It brings better light and darkness. There is no screen burn-in like LCD and OLED panels.
Ross Young is the co-founder and CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC). He seriously said that Apple will switch to mini-LEDs for the regular Apple watch starting with the Series 11 in 2025. Apple bought micro-LED maker LuxVue in 2014, but Young said the Cupertino-based tech giant won’t be involved in the process of making the micro-LED components, so LG Display is building the assembly line.
Not only that. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman also wrote that after Apple used micro-LED technology for the Apple Watch and Apple Watch Ultra, the iPhone will be the next product to feature micro-LED displays. Finally, Apple said that micro-LED could be used in iPad tablets and Mac computers as well.
