Samsung's reign as the sole supplier of OLED panels for Apple's iPhone X models has reportedly come to an end. According to a report from The Korea Herald, Apple has tapped LG as a secondary supplier of OLED panels for the recently unveiled iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. Hardly a surprise, there have been a few reports over the past few months indicating that Apple was keen on lessening its reliance on Samsung. Indeed, Apple reportedly wanted to use LG panels for last year's iPhone X before finding that the company's panels weren't up to par with Samsung's.
With word that LG is now a partner with Apple, it stands to reason that the company's OLED panels have improved such that they can now pass Apple's rigorous technical requirements.
