MicroLED displays will be Apple's first screenscompletely developed in-house. The company currently purchases screens from a number of manufacturers, including Japan Display Inc. , Sharp Corp. and BOE Technology Group Co. as well as Samsung and LG. Work, codenamed T159, kicked off around 2018, with Apple aiming to begin the transition to microLED screens as early as 2020, according to a Bloomberg analyst. But the project has stalled due to high costs and technical problems, say people involved in the work. Apple initially aimed to bring this technology to larger displays, but instead has focused on its own smartwatches for now, which have screens around two inches in size. At the same time, according to some project participants, Apple's goal for 2024 could potentially shift to 2025.
