    Apple Could Have New LED backlight Supplier Lined Up for the iPad


    9to5 Mac reports today that according to Digitimes’ industry sources, Apple is about to sign up a new backlight module supplier – Taiwanese firm Coretronic, whose modules are currently used in a variety of different products, including LED TVs. Apple currently has its iPad backlight modules made by Radiant, who also make parts for LG Display and Samsung. This latest news follows on from reports last month that Apple was considering sourcing its backlight modules from Everlight. It’s possible that both stories are correct and both Everlight and Coretronic have won contracts with Apple to supply backlight modules, as 9to5 Mac notes that Apple has recently been trying to source components from several different manufacturers to avoid becoming too reliant on just one company. Although Apple has so far not made any sort of official statement about the iPad 2’s backlight bleeding issues, which have been reported by many users, it may well be that Apple is quietly looking to change backlight module suppliers because of that particular ongoing problem.
