Apple iPhone 14 devices use Samsung OLED. Over 70%. One of the primary reasons Samsung Display is so successful in the OLED industry is that Apple only uses its panels in the iPhone. A recent rumor claims that Samsung will provide over 70% of the OLEDs for the iPhone 14 devices. This includes the standard panels used in the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus and the LTPO screens used in the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
According to TheElec, a Korean news website, Apple has plans to produce 120 million devices of its current flagship series. At least 80 million will use a Samsung panel, 20 million will utilize an LG Display screen, and roughly 6 million will go to BOE, the largest Chinese manufacturer of such panels.

For the remaining pieces, a provider has not yet been decided. Samsung and LG Display supply panels for all four iPhone 14 variants, whereas BOE only produces 6.1″ LTPS OLEDs for the base model. Among those 80 million sales, Samsung Display estimates that more than 60 million will be for Pro models due to the success of those variants.
There have been reports of manufacturing issues at LG Display, which have helped its rival in South Korea gain market share. As for BOE, the lackluster sales of the iPhone 14 might be a problem, but the more significant problem is Apple rethinking its contract after the Chinese manufacturer changed the circuit design without consulting Cupertino.
