Report: Apple again mulls Sharp IGZO screens

As the latest in a series of reports regarding screen sourcing plans for new iOS devices, Apple is again reportedly discussing IGZO panel production with Sharp for possible inclusion in its next generation iPads and iPhones, according to a Digitimes story that cites unnamed industry sources. These sources claim that Apple is evaluating how many IGZO panels will be available in 2013. Speculation that Apple would use Sharp’s thin, low-power, high pixel density IGZO displays in future devices has continued for some time, but actual products with the new technology have only recently arrived on the market, and in limited quantities. Apple and other companies have reportedly made substantial investments in Sharp to keep the financially unstable company afloat, in large part due to its screen production technologies.
