We haven’t even seen what the iPhone 14 looks like, and yet we are already getting announcements that preparation for the 2023 iPhone 15 series is underway.
BOE is a Chinese display company, and they are reportedly aiming to supply Apple with OLED LTPO displays for the higher-end iPhone 15 models in 2023.
This new report from The Elec says BOE is again trying to become Apple’s major iPhone display supplier. In 2018 BOE was inquired to contract orders for the 2020 iPhone 12 – now BOE is taking steps to position itself as ready to manufacture the OLED displays for the presumed “iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max” models.
BOE is reportedly working on LTPO displays at its latest factory, and the display aims for a two-stack tandem structure, which in turn helps increase the life cycle of the OLED panel.

The new factory called B12 is in Chongqing, China, just began operations as of Q4 2021. It is expected to have a capacity of 48,000 substrates per month.
Speaking in the present, BOE has not yet received any orders for LTPO OLED displays from Apple. This may not happen because BOE failed to secure LTPO displays for the iPhone 13 due to quality issues. All LTPO displays currently come from Samsung.
