The iPhone 14 Pro will have its own screen, and here’s why

In the iPhone 14 series, while the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus retain the notch, the iPhone 14 Pro andiPhone 14 Pro Max It has a dynamic island island. By opting for this solution, Apple has managed to get rid of the notch that first appeared on the iPhone X, while setting itself apart from the competition. Today we also learn that the screens of these two Pro models will have a technological specificity.

In a recent article, Korean media outlet The Elec explained (via MacRumours) that to cut holes for the front-facing camera and FaceID sensor on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, Apple would have required Samsung to use certain technology, supposedly to extend the life of the product.

Inkjet-based protection?

To achieve the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max display design, Samsung needs a bead-shaped punch hole on its OLED panels. However, this process can damage the pixels around that bead, exposing them to mold and oxygen. To avoid this, Samsung has created a kind of “dam” that isolates the surrounding pixels. But while Samsung usually uses the laser method, Apple would have asked the Korean giant (its supplier) to use another inkjet-based method.

This would be an additional precaution required by Apple, to ensure that the etching process does not affect the longevity of the product. Apparently, LG, which supplies some screens to Apple, will also use the same process. – the official app
