Reports suggest low yields at SDC's fab causes Apple to delay the launch of its first AMOLED tablets

In January 2024 we reported that Samsung Display and LG Display have started to produce AMOLED displays for Apple's future iPads, to be announced later this year. Earlier expectations were for Apple to order a total of 10 million iPad AMOLED displays in 2024 from both LGD and SDC, with LGD getting around 60% of the orders. 

Apple was aiming to launch the new OLED iPads this month, but have now reportedly delayed the release to May, as Samsung is suffering from low yields for the 11" AMOLED panels, mostly due to the tandem stack architecture.


It is likely that LG Display is finding it easier to produce such panels, as it has begun producing tandem OLED years ago, for the automotive industry.
