Industrial sources speak ETNews said that parts had been received on the LG site in Paju, South Korea. The company is reported to be starting to develop panels for Apple.

What we don't know

As before with stories like this, it's important to emphasize what we don't know yet and how dubious reports have been on Apple's supply chain in the past.

Details of the agreement between Apple and LG are not public. According to Apple Insider: "Industry observers estimate there are around 400,000 panels in order. With an estimated price of 100,000 won ($ 89.29) per OLED panel, total orders are estimated to be worth around 40 billion won ($ 35.7 million) for LG. "

Also it is not known what size the panel is. Apple can use each panel to make many views.

Old rumors and relationships

There are rumors back in September that LG will provide an OLED screen for the new iPhone even though it hasn't happened yet. LG has indeed provided OLED panels for Apple Watch, so it is inconceivable that this agreement could be extended to include panels for the iPhone.
