Apple will delay the transition of all iPhone to OLED to 2020

Apple had planned to make all-in on OLEDs for the forthcoming 2019 iPhone generation, aiming for 2018's line-up to bring the latest model to the LCD.

However, according to a Wall Street Journal report, this is not going to happen, as Apple may have to wait another year to give up LCDs completely. This is a decision based mainly on the existing vendor portfolio, as Samsung is today the only company that manufactures OLED panels that can meet Apple's requirements and is likely to remain so in the near future.

While Apple is actively working with LG, which will also be manufacturing OLEDs for the company, this project is slow and the company has no choice but to remain on the LCD for at least another year, the report adds.

Otherwise, adding OLEDs to all iPhone models would lead to higher prices for the entire composition, a strategy that Apple can not afford at the moment. The LCD version expected to be launched this year is expected to be the most affordable generation, as Apple wants a low-cost alternative to its premium iPhone.

Samsung, in turn, is pushing for higher screen prices and the existing panel on the iPhone X is said to be the most expensive part of the device. If this approach is maintained for future models, iPhone could be released at even higher prices - Apple is believed to be working on an iPhone X Plus with an even larger screen that would obviously cost more.

At the moment, staying Apple with the LCD is its only choice and although it wants to make the transition to OLED it is bound to stay with this technology for a little longer.

This does not necessarily mean that sticking to LCDs would not allow Apple to add new features to its devices. All models will come with a notch and will incorporate face recognition Face ID, with the edge-to-edge screen being used on devices regardless of screen technology.
