Apple joins hands with BOE to manufacture iPhone 14 screens
Apple has agreed to provide 50 million 6.1-inch OLED screens to BOE for the next iPhone 14. The remaining models will continue to use Samsung and LG screens. BOE’s displays will make up approximately 20 to 25 per cent of the total display panels utilized in the iPhone 14 series. Apple is likely to release the iPhone 14 series later this year, with four models: iPhone 14, 14 Max, 14 Pro, and 14 Pro Max. The basic iPhone 14 will have an OLED display produced by BOE, a Chinese display manufacturer. This is the first time BOE has gotten a current-generation iPhone order from Apple. For the past three years, BOE has been attempting to get an agreement with Apple to provide OLED panels for current-generation iPhones. However, Apple’s regular testing revealed that BOE screens failed. Now it appears that BOE has improved the quality of its display panels, which is why the business was able to reach an agreement with Apple for the iPhone 14.

This feature is part of Instagram’s effort to become more creator-friendly, with CEO Adam Mosseri unveiling a new feature practically every week that will improve the experience for people who use the platform to promote their own content. Instagram’s “Pin to your profile” function has been in beta since January, and it might be released shortly.
