the company aims to make the new technology available first in its wearable computers While still at least a couple of years away from reaching consumers — assuming the company decides to proceed — producing a functional MicroLED Apple Watch prototype is a significant milestone for a company that in the past designed hardware to be produced by others The latest MicroLED Apple Watch prototypes arent fully functioning wearables; instead the screen portion is connected to an external computer board The screens are notably brighter than the current OLED Watch displays and engineers have a finer level of control over individual colors according to a person who has seen them Executives recently approved continued development for the next two years with the aim of shipping MicroLED screens in products Its unlikely that the technology will reach an iPhone for at least three to five years the people say While the smartphone is Apples cash cow there is precedent for new screen technologies showing up in the Apple Watch first When it was introduced in 2014 the Apple Watch had an OLED screen The technology finally migrated to the iPhone X last year Creating MicroLED screens is extraordinarily complex Depending on screen size they can contain millions of individual pixels Each has three sub-pixels: red green and blue LEDs Each of these tiny LEDs must be individually created and calibrated Each piece comes from what is known as a "donor wafer" and then are mass-transferred to the MicroLED screen Early in the process Apple bought these wafers from third-party manufacturers like Epistar Corp and Osram Licht AG but has since begun "growing" its own LEDs to make in-house donor wafers The growing process is done inside a clean room at the Santa Clara facility Engineers at the facility are also assembling prototype MicroLED screens right down to attaching the screen to the glass The backplanes an underlying component that electronically powers the displays are developed at the Taiwan facility Apple is also designing its own thin-film transistors and screen drivers key components in display assemblies Currently the Santa Clara facility is capable of manufacturing a handful of fully operational Apple Watch-sized (under 2 inches diagonally) MicroLED screens at a time Until MicroLED is ready for the world to see Apple will still — at least publicly — be all-in on OLED The company plans to release a second OLED iPhone in the fall a giant 65-inch model and is working to expand OLED production from Samsung to also include LG Contact us at editors@timecom RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) – Brazilian authorities executed 15 arrest warrants on Thursday as part of an investigation into alleged corruption in highway contracts in the state of Sao Paulo according to a statement from federal prosecutors and police One of the targets was Laurence Casagrande Lourenco former head of state-run Dersa the company in charge of Sao Paulo’s highways court documents showed Lourenco is currently the head of state-run utility Companhia Energetica de Sao Paulo SA widely known as Cesp He also served as transport and logistics secretary for former Sao Paulo Governor Geraldo Alckmin now a centrist presidential candidate polling in the single-digits in recent surveys It could not be immediately determined if Lourenco is represented by an attorney Cesp did not return a request for comment Prosecutors said in the statement that targets included "former executives of Dersa and executives of construction firms OAS and Mendes Junior" among others Under the alleged scheme Sao Paulo’s state government was over-billed more than 600 million reais ($158 million) for construction works on a major highway that rings metropolitan Sao Paulo (Reporting by Pedro Fonseca;
