iPhone 16: More energy efficiency thanks to new display technology? | News

If you look at some of the sober technical specifications of iPhone displays in recent years, you might get the impression that Apple is lagging behind: only since the iPhone 12 have all of its branches been equipped with an OLED screen, although the iPhone SE is still a not-so-glorious exception. The 120 Hz screen followed only with the Pro versions of the iPhone 13. However, the quality of the panels also knows how to convince connoisseurs: thanks to high color accuracy and an excellent contrast ratio, the screens always achieve top marks. Cupertino has another improvement in mind for the iPhone 16.

MLA-OLED for higher light output
Although OLED panels have made progress in terms of their brightness, there is still plenty of room for improvement. Report by electrical According to Apple, the use of a so-called “Micro Lens Array” (MLA) is being considered, which should exceed the peak brightness of conventional OLED screens. This technology ensures that special microlenses combine between the panel’s contrast filters and OLED pixels and transmit them to the surface. However, in some cases, MLA reduces luminance on the sides of the screen. Moreover, it is an expensive process. According to the article, both LG and Samsung have offered to provide Apple with MLA OLED screens for the iPhone 16.

Apple remains reserved for the time being
Cupertino doesn’t seem so sure: this is due, on the one hand, to the aforementioned defects and on the other to the completely different material that the two Korean suppliers would have supplied. Apple is reluctant to make any commitment because the required standard has not been met. Above all, MLA-OLED technology reduces battery consumption: with the same brightness, these panels consume less energy. Samsung already uses MLA technology in some of its smartphones, while LG uses this technology in some smart TVs.
