So when Apple say they’re working on Micro LED technologies, what they really mean, is Samsung is and they’re investing heavily in it.
I bet the court case was settled by Samsung saying, “if you don’t stop being throwing your toys out the pram, you can kiss Micro LED displays goodbye” –


Yes it’s definately got something to do with displays and chips Samsung make for Apple. Probably just took a simple threat/promise to lay that one to rest. Haha!
