“It was rumored in September 2021 that Apple requested FMM sample from AP Systems (APS Holdings) for use with the mixed reality headset. Apple had requested a resolution of 3000ppi (pixels per inch). Apple tested the FMM sample to see if it could be applied to production, then form a more concrete plant for the VR device’s development”. South Korean company AP Systems will provide LG with the necessary ultra high-resolution fine metal mask (FMM), with rumors flying that back in September 2021 that Apple requested FMM samples from AP Systems for use in its new mixed reality (MR) headset.
Apple’s second-generation MR (mixed reality) headset will include an LG Panel microOLED display with a resolution of 3000-4000 PPI (pixels per inch). Apple’s first-generation AR/MR (augmented or mixed reality) headgear will transform the world, and all signals point to a second-generation MR headset with a likely 4000 PPI display. According to Patently Apple, Sony will supply Apple with Micro-OLED displays for their first-generation MR headset, while LG Display will supply higher-resolution Micro-OLED panels for the second-generation Apple MR headset. “We discovered this week that LG will be employing super high-resolution fine metal mask (FMM) from AP Systems,” Patently Apple continued.
Patently Apple reports that earlier in 2021, APS Holdings (the parent company of AP Systems) was chosen by the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy to make a new Micro-OLED display technology that would have high luminance and high-resolution AR application. The site added: “The national project’s aim is to develop a AR glass with 4000ppi resolution by 2024”. The site notes that Apple is “expected to use Sony’s MicroOLED panel for the screen on its first MR device while the outer screen, or an ‘indicator’, which will be a regular OLED panel, will be provided by LG Display. Apple’s new device is expected to launch during the first half of next year”.
