Apple to help build AU Optronics into AMOLED supplier for future iPhones, sources say

“Apple is planning to invest in Taiwan’s AU Optronics and build the firm into an AMOLED screen supplier for future iPhones, reports said on Tuesday,” Roger Fingas reports for AppleInsider.

“Although AUO refused to comment on the matter, its shares jumped 5.15 percent in Tuesday trading, according to Focus Taiwan,” Fingas reports. “The enthusiasm spread to Apple panel supplier Innolux, which saw its own shares rise 2.67 percent.”

“Other reports have suggested,” Fingas reports, “that the technology won’t be in iPhones until at least 2018, or possibly even 2019.”
