Better late than never

Fruity Cargo cult Apple is so desperate for ideas it is trying to update itself using OLED technology from its rival Samsung which is used in most high-end Android smartphones.

Of course when it has the same technology as Samsung it will convince its fanboys that it somehow invented the “game-changing” technology.

Word on the street is that Apple wants to shift its iPhone display technology from LCD to OLED by 2018. Apparently it is worried that it is lagging far behind high end Android phones which already have the tech,

Samsung and Motorola, have moved towards OLED and AMOLED displays making the iPhone look even more dated than it actually is.

Apple has notified its component suppliers that it wants OLED technology by 2018. South Korea's Samsung Electronics is currently the only company that can reliably mass-produce OLED smartphone screens.

LG Display has a track record for producing OLEDs for television screens. Given this, the two companies will likely supply a large portion of Apple's displays.

Foxxconn, Apple's largest manufacturer might be a bit miffed at the move. It recently invested $4 billion in a new LCD plant to make screens for Apple.
