blankApple’s move to mini-LED looks set to be accelerated thanks to a fall in the price of manufacturing, according to a Ming-Chi Kuo research note seen by iMore. Kuo says that both Sanan Optoelectronics and Epistar are battling for Apple’s business, pushing down the price the company will need to pay for parts.

Shipments of mini-LED displays for use in iPads and MacBooks are expected to begin next year, with Epistar previously expected to be the sole supplier. Kuo says that Epistar has been able to meet Apple’s requirements, but that hasn’t stopped it from looking to bring other suppliers online for multiple reasons. Additional capacity, increased yield, and increased competition are all reasons Apple would not want to solely rely on a single manufacturer.
