At the same time, the panels for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will be made from the M12 set and will have an LTPO backplane. The M12 material set will also be used for Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 displays.
Meanwhile, LG is also said to supply the display for the iPhone 14 series.
