LG Display reportedly can't meet Apple's demand for OLED screens due to manufacturing issues []. This means that Apple will once again be reliant on its primary supplier and smartphone rival, Samsung:

Analysts have been warning for months that Apple is in "urgent" need of finding another iPhone OLED supplier [] besides Samsung.
