It's getting very difficult for Apple

Apple is abandoning microLED after seven years.

I tried to do it myself – it would have increased the brightness and made the colors more vibrant

The company itself wanted to search for the best panel for its products, but has now given up after spending billions of dollars on research and development. This means that jobs will be cut – some will find another job at Apple, and others will have to find a new job. Employees in the US and Asia are affected by changes to the project that was originally intended to be used with Watch.

Mark Gurman was very sure that Apple would move forward with the panel technology. At the same time, reports emerged to the contrary, while Gurman believes Apple has continued to collaborate with motherboard company OSRAM: “I don't think the project has been cancelled,” he wrote in a now-deleted message on X.

Gorman wrote in the last report that Apple is giving up for now (OLED displays will remain on the Watch), but they are continuing to look for panels for other products/projects. The company also hasn't given up on microLED technology, seeing opportunities with other partners and ways to develop it, but it's not expected to continue with the same focus on steel as it has in the near future.

In addition to researching the panels themselves, they are rumored to be looking into battery chemistry. Apple has also been developing its own 5G modem for many years, a project that has been postponed several times. In addition to all this, Apple wants its own Bluetooth, 5G, and WiFi chip, where everything is gathered in one place, and without Apple controlling everything.
