The next generation of Apple Watch with microLED displays may be introduced in 2020.

According to rumors, Apple is negotiating with a Taiwanese display manufacturer to supply microLED panels for

Apple Watch's next generation of smart watches.

But it is not exactly

According to the source, the production of the necessarybatches of matrices will take about 9 months. The interviewed vendor also said that microLEDs plan to install not only in the Apple Watch, but also in the iPhone. If the information is true, we will see devices with new panels in the fall of 2020. Recall that now Apple uses OLED displays manufactured by LG.

What will change

Unlike OLED technology, microLEDprovides a higher brightness per unit of power consumption, and therefore it is more energy efficient. Power consumption can be 50% lower, which is very important for smartphones and smart watches, especially if you consider the problems of Apple with batteries. Also microLED panels will provide even shorter response time, up to nanoseconds.
