iPhone 13 Pro models said to use LTPO display tech from LG

The Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 mini.

Apple is said to be adopting OLED displays with low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) for the iPhone 13 Pro models next year. 

Korean publication TheElec reports that LG Display plans to put LTPO thin-film transistors (TFT) equipment into its factory production lines next year. By May 2021, the LTPO equipment kit will be used to produce OLED panels for the 2021 and 2022 iPhone models. 

TheElec reported in October 2019 that Apple could use the low-power LTPO display technology on future iPhones. Research firm IHS Markit claimed in 2018 that Apple will switch to LTPO display technology for the iPhone and may even develop its own LTPO technology to have more control over the display components.

The adoption of LTPO display technology for the iPhone next year makes sense as Apple is rumoured to be introducing 120Hz ProMotion displays on the iPhone 13. LTPO displays are already used on the Apple Watch models. The oxide TFT structure of LTPO display consumes up to 15% less power than the low-temperature polysilicon (LTPO) display technology on the current iPhone models.
