According to Bloomberg, Leading US technology software and hardware company Apple is currently developing a new range of LED displays at a manufacturing facility in California.

The displays, known as MicroLED, will become both the first in-house manufactured screens from the company and also its next generation displays, replacing the existing OLED devices.

Using different light-emitting compounds, MicroLED screens are slimmer, brighter and use less power than the OLED counterparts.

Although the displays are not expected to become available for a few years with the technology being in its infancy, they will mark a significant step for Apple in bring more of its manufacturing in house, enabling the company to compete more readily against its rivals.

Off the back of the announcement a number of leading screen display developers saw their stock drop significantly, with Universal Display falling as much as 10.8%.
