BOE Ships iPhone 13 OLED Packages to Apple Shortly After It Was Banned for Cheating by the Company

BOE, a Chinese display manufacturer, has seemingly changed its mind about Apples supply chain and will continue to deliver its iPhone 13 OLED panel customers. Not too long ago, Apple banned the supplier because it was caught cutting corners in an attempt to reduce its production costs and increase margins.

After the manufacturer was given orders once more, BOE executives reportedly visited Apple to explain the situation.

Apple would most likely have wanted to include BOE into its supply chain list in order to give less pricing leverage to Samsung and LG, who are also involved in supplying iPhone 13s OLED panels. Following Chinese manufacturers'' actions that put it in hot waters, BOE executives visited Apple''s headquarters in Cupertino, attempting to amend their conclusions.

To recap, BOE has changed the circuit width of the iPhone 13s without enforcing the California-based giant. Even now, it is not like BOE has been properly accepted into Apple''s supply chain arms once more. According to the report, the Chinese display manufacturer will provide five million units at the most, while Samsung and LG will fulfill the remaining orders.

Apple is unlikely to allocate a large order to BOE due to fear that history may not be replicated with the iPhone 14 screens. The quality of the panel is also a concern for the iPhone 14 series to be released in the coming months.

Samsung and LG are expected to mass-produced LTPO displays for the more costly iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. BOE may continue to mass-produced units for the regular iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max, assuming it will meet Apple''s stringent quality requirements.
