Apple Vision Pro It’s not on the market yet, but Cupertino residents are already working on next generations that will be just as capable, but progressively cheaper and less bulky. However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t complications. As reported The informationCalifornian could break the connection to Sony as the supplier of the screens for his “space computer”.
Apple would consider stopping using the micro-OLED screens developed by the Japanese company and replacing them with those made by Chinese companies. Actually, BOE j SeeYa technology They would strive to fill the hypothetical “gap” that might remain in the supply chain. Provided, of course, that the break in the link between Sony and Tim Cook’s is confirmed.
Now why would Apple stop using Sony screens in future generations of the Vision Pro? From the above report, it appears that the main reason for the disagreement between the parties would be that the reluctance of the Japanese to expand their production capacity for the screens for the mixed reality helmet. The reason for this would be the demands of the residents of Cupertino to speed up the series production of their new device.
While no further details are given in this regard, it is logical to assume that producing more micro-OLED screens in less time will require a multi-million dollar investment by Sony. And Asians may not be convinced that economic efforts will recover in what they consider a reasonable period.
Or maybe it’s an ego battle. TOpple lets component vendors feel the rigors of their devices, and the Vision Pro should be no exception. In fact, it’s the riskiest bet Cupertino has made since the launch of the iPhone. So it wouldn’t be surprising that Sony, a company with such a long history, would want to limit its willingness to go to meet the demands of the people in the market.
The screens of the future Apple Vision Pro could come from China
The BOE and SeeYa as potential providers of micro-OLED screens for the future Apple Vision Pro would be more than just a mere declaration of intent. Both Chinese companies would already be working with those from Cupertino. In fact, Apple wouldn’t just test its components for a future version of the main device. This would also happen in a cheaper variant of the helmet that focuses on mixed reality.
If the break with Sony as the provider of screens for the next generations of the Vision Pro is confirmed, the Chinese manufacturers mentioned above will not have a clear path. Apple applies a very rigorous selection process to every company that supplies it with components retains tight control over processes, costs and delivery dates. A methodology established by Tim Cook as operations manager under Steve Jobs, and later deepened by Tony Blevins as the company’s vice president of acquisitions.
However, The trend towards helping more Chinese companies develop the Vision Pro could also pose political complications for Apple. Tensions between the US and the Asian giant are making themselves felt in the technology sector. Those from Cupertino were already the focus of North American politics due to their close relationship with China in manufacturing their devices. Let’s not forget that some congressmen warned that the company is “playing with fire” by using components from this country.
The Apples are making great efforts to expand production of the iPhone and other products in India and Vietnam. However, the work is not easy. And while the Apple Vision Pro is just taking its first steps, depends almost exclusively on China. Regardless of who supplies the components, Luxshare Precision, a Chinese company, is the only one responsible for assembling them.
