Future Apple Watch models may get MicroLED displays
A previous report claimed that Apple would release an Apple Watch with a MicroLED display in 2023, but a new rumor pushes that to 2025.
As early as 2020, rumors surfaced that suggested Apple was working on bringing MicroLED display technology to the Apple Watch. At that time, the supply chain leak includes a timeframe of 2023 or 2024.
Although both OLED and MicroLED can achieve extreme local dimming and almost infinite contrast, a MicroLED panel will have greater control over the displayed content. For example, Apple Watch users with a MicroLED display could see sharper text, brighter displays in the sun, and a reduced chance for burn-in, which sometimes happens with OLED displays.
