A month later there it news in the display disputeas reported by the Korean magazine The Elec.

Who supplies the OLED touchscreens for the iPhone 14?

Reportedly, Boe execs met with Apple execs to explain the situation. A decision may be made this week as to whether the Chinese will also be among the suppliers for the upcoming iPhone 14. In addition to Boe, the two South Korean companies Samsung and LG are said to be among the display suppliers for the new iPhone 14. BOE may only deliver five million OLED touchscreens, while the majority are said to come from Samsung and LG.

In addition, the two Pro models should offer a display with a double punch hole instead of a notch.
