An interesting report from Korea suggests that Apple's CEO met with Samsung Display's CEO recently, as Apple is looking to reduce its OLED iPhone orders from Samsung by around 15% in 2022.

Apple, like the rest of the technology industry, is facing supply constraints and has already said that it won't be able to meet the demand for its products in 2022. Apple's original plan was to produce 220 million iPhones in 2022, and it expected to order 160 million iPhone AMOLED panels from SDC. Apple's now expects to ship only 185 million iPhones.

Samsung is of course not happy with that, and the company asked Apple not to reduce its OLED panel commitment. But Samsung will reportedly not stop there - and is considering a legal strategy against its OLED competitors - specifically Samsung may sue Apple for infringing upon Samsung's patents if it orders AMOLED displays produced by LG and BOE.

This is not confirmed yet, but it will certainly be interesting to see how this story unfolds in the coming months.
