Apple may be looking to adopt a new display technology in an attempt to improve battery life in various devices. According to a report from ET News, the company is in talks with LG and Sharp to use indium gallium zinc oxide (IGZO) displays. Apple is reportedly interested in the technology for its iPad and MacBook devices to help them deliver longer battery life. IGZO displays have forty times more electron mobility than amorphous silicon, a key layer in LCD displays, and allow for higher screen resolutions, better reaction times and less power consumption. Apple will reportedly include a IGZO display in its next-generation MacBook computers in early 2014. It is unclear if the technology will debut in the company’s new iPad, which is expected to be announced this fall.
