Apple has partnered with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSMC) to develop advanced micro OLED display technology. Micro OLED will be useful for augmented reality devices.
The new displays will be built directly onto wafers. They will be far thinner and smaller and use less power.
They are at the trial production stage. It will take several years to reach mass production.
The components are 100 times smaller than those used in LED lighting products and they do not need backlight modules like traditional LEDs and LCDs.
