New rumors suggest that 2020 Apple Watch models could get microLED screens, moving away from its current OLED display.
Switching from OLED to microLED is expected to bring miniaturization and battery life longevity improvements, as microLED pixels are more power-efficient. microLED panels are also less susceptible to burn-in artifacts compared to OLED.
Charlotte Henry and John Martellaro join host Kelly Guimont to talk about display technology in Apple devices, and an “entry level” iPhone.
