BOE company was removed from the iPhone 13 panel supply chain due to arbitrary changes

As PhoneArena writes, quoting The Elec, the Chinese company BOE, which is one of the suppliers of OLED displays for Apple iPhones, has decided to change the design of its panels at will due to the lack of primary parts. It is said that BOE’s goal in changing the panel design is to remain among Apple’s suppliers and not lose its contract with this Cupertino company.

BOE initially made replacement screens for repairing Apple iPhones and gradually managed to himself to the supply chain of iPhone 12 and iPhone 13. The whistleblowers said months ago that Apple has asked BOE to produce 40 million OLED panels for the iPhone this year.

It seems that Apple has stopped ordering BOE panels since at least February of last year, and this Chinese company is not going to produce 40 million panels. slow One of the reasons for Apple’s decision is the changes that BOE has made in the iPhone’s OLED panel design after facing a shortage of DDI parts.

Apple’s demand.

Apple noticed these changes and decided to reduce BOE’s share of its supply chain and to transfer the production of panels that were originally supposed to be made by BOE to LG. hand over Another factor that may have forced BOE to change the design of its panels is Samsung’s patents, which have recently made headlines again.

In any case, it seems that the BOE will not be able to achieve its goals in the field of screen production this year.

  • Apple to provide The iPhone 14 display was agreed with BOE
  • iPhone 14 Pro display is produced exclusively by Samsung and 3 other models are produced by several companies

Apple is diversifying its chain Provision has a special emphasis. A few years ago, Apple approached LG and BOE to reduce its dependence on Samsung, but the production capacity of those two companies was so low that they could only provide replacement screens to repair iPhones. For this reason, Apple again had to supply most of the panels it needed through Samsung. Last year, LG doubled the production capacity of iPhone OLED panels, and BOE also appeared more seriously in Apple’s supply chain.
