Apple is a competitor of Samsung on smartphones, but it is also one of the customers of its subsidiary Samsung Display. It not only manufactures screens for Galaxy smartphones, but also for models from other brands, including Apple.
And of course, Samsung is one of the companies that provides screens to Apple for its new iPhone 14. Moreover, when it comes to the screens of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, the Korean giant could well see its notebook of commands inflate.
In an article published this week, Korean media outlet The Elec says Samsung Display is expected to get more orders for the low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) OLED panels used in high-end iPhone 14 models. Apple has indeed decided to order more screens of this type, for the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max, from Samsung.
Indeed, Samsung’s competitors for the production of these screens would currently have performance problems (a problem that Samsung would also have encountered during the production of the Galaxy Note 20 screens, but which it has already solved). And because of this, Apple would have decided to order more from the Korean giant.

iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max: the two models that are selling well?
According to The Elec, Samsung has already ordered new equipment from its suppliers, to prepare for this increase in orders from Apple. Samsung Display’s initial forecast would have been for 130 million OLED type screens to be delivered to Apple. But now, the Samsung subsidiary would expect to deliver 149 million.
For the moment, of course, this information should be considered with caution, since it does not come from an official source. But in any case, given that Apple has concentrated the main novelties of its iPhone 14 series on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro, it is to be expected that these models will sell well.
It will probably take a few weeks to get a clear idea of the popularity of each model in the iPhone 14 series. But if we trust a recent analysis by Ming Chi Kuo, who observed delivery times during the pre-order phase, the iPhone 14 Pro Max should sell better compared to its predecessor. The iPhone 14 Pro would also have very good performance.
