Apple Watch Series 10 with LTPO OLED screen for improved efficiency and battery life: report


Apple is preparing to launch its latest wearable, the Apple Watch Series 10, later this year. A recent report from South Korean publication The Elec suggests that the tech giant is making significant advances in the display technology of its upcoming smartwatch, promising users improved battery life.

According to The Elec, the Apple Watch Series 10 will feature a new type of OLED screen called Low Temperature Polycrystalline Oxide (LTPO), coupled with thin film transistor (TFT) technology. This display technology upgrade is intended to increase the efficiency of the device and ensure longer battery life compared to its predecessor, the Apple Watch Series 9.

The report shows that Apple is moving away from using low-temperature polycrystalline silicon (LTPS) technology in most of its 10-series switching transistors. Instead, LTPS technology is only used for circuits outside the pixel range and for some remaining TFTs switching. This strategic change is intended to contribute to the improved battery performance of the upcoming smartwatch.

As Bloomberg reports, recent developments suggest that Apple has decided against developing its own microLED screens. This decision led to a restructuring of the display engineering teams and layoffs within the company. Despite this shift in display technology, the Apple Watch Series 10 is expected to offer notable advances in its display capabilities when it launches in the second half of 2024.

The launch of the Apple Watch Series 10 is expected to coincide with the unveiling of the iPhone 16 series. This lineup is speculated to include four models: the iPhone 16, iPhone 16 Plus, iPhone 16 Pro, and iPhone 16 Pro Max. As anticipation builds for the upcoming releases, consumers are eagerly awaiting the innovative features and improvements , which Apple will bring to its latest offerings in wearable technology and smartphones.
