This suggests sharp. And can't remember where I heard Japan Display. I think most are lg though. That's the one we see in teardowns.

Possibly, you may also find the below article interesting which suggests that the next ipad screens will be coming from Nitto Denko, Nissha, TPK & Hon Hai (Foxconn).

There's so much mystery behind it on ipad and iPhones as well.

On retina Mbp, it's pretty straight forward -- Samsung and lg.

I think most companies do like to keep quiet about their supply chain as far as possible as they like to keep their own brand up front. If we knew exactly what components were being used in which devices, I'm sure that would influence what people buy.

Apple along with most other electronics manufacturers these days basically put together different components available on the market in new and innovative ways.

I am pretty sure it is just LG and Sharp, it is unlikely to be Samsung since Apple are trying to move away from Samsung...

If they do use IGZO panels in the next gen ios devices, Sharp will be one of the suppliers since they hold the patent for that technology and they've only licensed it to select other manufacturers.

Yep that's why it was crucial for companies to help sharp out when they were in a financial pickle last year.

I think IGZO has a lot of potential but no ones really taken advantage of it yet. I don't think there are any IGZO products available yet outside Asia, although that's probably partly to do with manufacturing constraints.

I will be excited for it too

But if ipad 5 is internally pretty much the same (a6x, 1gb) I might hold onto my 4.

I don't like getting same generations of silicone repackaged.. Ipad 3, even though I loved/love it, never again. I felt weird about going even a5 to a5x and same body as ipad 2 but soooo worth it for the screen (after endless swaps)

I think iPad 5s likely to have A7x and will probable be out summer or fall. What were the screen issues you had? Was it image retention?

Yeah slight image retention on the 4 when testing for it
