With the recent launch of the iPad mini, Apple (AAPL) has continued its attempts to end its reliance on Samsung (005930). A new report from Digitimes suggests a majority of screens for the company’s smaller tablet are coming from LG Display (LPL). A recent teardown of the iPad mini’s hardware revealed that Samsung is still supplying some panels, however. AU Optronics (AUO) is also said to be supplying Apple with displays, although the manufacturer reportedly continues to have issues manufacturing the panels. It was reported last month that Apple also turned away from using Samsung’s displays in its fourth-generation iPad and latest MacBook computers.
