Apple, one of the world's largest companies, develops consumer electronics and computer software, and the company also develops a wide range of next generation technologies.
In 2014 Apple acquired LuxVue Technology, a startup company that developed Micro-LED based displays. LuxVuew raised $43 million in funding prior to the Apple purchase. Apple continues to researcn and develop Micro-LED technologies and established a research and production facility in Taoyuan, Taiwan.
in 2017 reports suggested that Apple intends to start low-volume production of Micro-LED devices by the end of the year, with mass production commencing in 2018 (in-house or at production partners, which makes more sense). Apple's first goal is to adopt Micro-LED displays in smart watch devices.
