South Korea's LG Display is struggling to meet the demand for organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screens for iPhones due to be released in the autumn, disrupting Apple's plans to reduce its dependence on Samsung, according to unnamed sources cited by the Wall Street Journal. Manufacturing problems have caused LG to fall behind the schedule that many suppliers follow to begin mass production for new iPhone models, said the report, with one source adding that opinions within Apple are now divided on whether LG Display can become a second source of OLED displays for the upcoming iPhones.
