Apple has opened a new laboratory in Taiwan for developing new display technologies, Bloomberg reports. Citing people with “knowledge of the facility,” the report indicates that the production laboratory building in Longtan houses at least 50 engineers and other workers who are tasked with creating new screens for future iPhones, iPads, and other devices. Apple is said to have recruited talent from local display makers AU Optronics Corp. and Qualcomm, who used to own the building where the new lab is now located. New display technology under development allegedly includes more advanced versions of the current LCD iPhone and iPad displays as well as research on OLED screen technology. A spokesperson for Apple declined to comment.
